Just watching the Opening Ceremony now.

Started out with a guy doing a gymnastics routine with a pool cue, who only dropped it once, went onto some shadow puppetry and now it's some kind of montage showing all the other sports that have sold out to the Saudis.

Been watching a bit more of the Pool in Saudi.

Absolutely nobody there of course. Also there's 10 tables in the arena and only the main table has a shot clock.

Makes sense that you can't have beeps from 10 tables at once, but quite farcical for a 'World Championship' to have 2 sets of rules.

Neil Robertson and Ryan Day through on Day 1.

Mark Williams playing today, but I assume he'll be on Table 1 which means the YouTube group will be Chris Wakelin, Rory McLeod, Ian Burns and Liam Pullen.

Agreed, it's rubbish. Today's line-up is particularly vile.

And so many players have not entered, they've gone done to about 40th on the top-up list.

Matthew Stevens and Ash Carty through on Day 3.

Happy to see Carty beat Elliot Slessor in the last match to go through.

Watching Stan Moody and Ben Woollaston now.

Moody is still only 17. I think in a few years he's going to be a very good player.

The game needs a young star imho.
He went to rubbish in his next 2 matches unfortunately, although he still beat Dylan Emery who was even more rubbish.

My point still stands, I think he has a solid game already, he's not just an all out attacker who'll have to learn a safety game later which a lot of youngsters seem to be.

Hopefully he can stay on tour after this season and continue to progress.

Will get my first look at Bulcsu Revesz tonight, be interesting to see his game at a similar age.
