PUT DOWN IN WORDS

The World Series grand finals opened last night with a well attended press conference in which representatives of the Portugese tourist board spoke along with John Higgins, Shaun Murphy and Steve Davis.

Players are practising on a table at the hotel that was originally donated by King Edward VII in 1903.

After an informal reception, it was off into town to relax before the start of the tournament.

This included a visit to a karaoke bar and special mentions must go to Higgins (Handbags and Gladrags) and Mark Selby (Your Song) for getting into the spirit of things.

I'm looking forward to seeing Jimmy White take on Luca Brecel - a legend of snooker's past against a star of the future.

Crowds are not expected to be great. There is no real history of snooker in Portugal but the idea is to try it out and hopefully build up interest.

John Higgins music taste concerns me Rod Stewart and I remember him once saying he liked James Blunt.

I too am looking forward to seeing Jimmy play, the result could be very interesting indeed! Could Brecel win?!
