2) Who was the first Scot to compete at the Crucible?

3) In which year did Lawrie Annandale referee the World Championship final?

4) Who did John Higgins beat in the final when he won the Masters for the first time?

5) Which Scottish player is the youngest to compile a 147 in a ranking tournament?

1) Dott also lost to Hendry in the Scottish Open and the Malta Cup, so I think it's four finals

2) Haven't a clue. John Rea?

3) Trick question? I don't recall him ever doing one.

4) Defintely Doherty

5) I think it's Maguire too, although Dott made one quite young as well.

Hi Dave. Phil Yates said in last weeks Premier League that Mark Selby was meeting up with Barry Hearn in London this week to launch a new tournament. Have you heard any more about it?

To the first poster: no, it is not whom. There is a fairly usable rule of thumb: if you can answer 'he did' it is who and if you can answer 'him' it is whom.

It works for me.
