Well done allen on the win and also to Wilson, for making this a good match which had a bit of everything.
Apart from the modern tech i felt I was watching a match from 20 years ago stuck in a time warp. snooker has moved, get with the new game guys
@128 That’s alright
Well done Mark, you deserved a big win. You got there in the end. Bring on the World Championship.
200K soon be gone. he'll blow that within a month
As a snooker fan I thought it was a great and gripping final. Always tough for any player to lose any final, however Allen deserved this win, he was by far and away the most consistent player the past 8 days at the Masters. Hopefully he can kick on and add more titles now. As for Kyren Wilson he is only 26 and has a bright future ahead of him.
@125Bouncy. Spot on. Londonderry needed to read my earlier comments to know that I'm also a proud Ulsterman and proud of Mark Allen,his supporters and the NI flag they were waving at the end.
@126 Runner up got £90000
Some great snooker in that event - Williams beating Selby 6-5, Wilson doing the same to Trump. Shame about the disparity of the winner's cheque (£200k) and the runner-up (£19k). Surely a bit out of balance considering their performances??
@116 I think you misunderstand Little Mick’s @112 on Tour, he doesn’t mention the fans behaviour during the match , he is purely pointing out its a snooker match and as such it isn’t going to be all cartwheels and fireworks etc from the players, it’s a tactical game. Well done to the Ulsterman , great tactical match , prefer that than match after match of big scoring breaks
@109 why moan about it on the bbc website on a snooker news report? Go and tell Eurosport....
O'Sullivan vs Fu, THE most incredible snooker I have ever seen. I'm not a fanboy, but love to see a genius at work. When he's in full flow like that, no one can touch him. Federer / Woods / Schumacher esque.Credit to Allen, he did the job and credit to Wilson for doing his best and being a gent.
I couldn't watch on TV, so missed it.Why couldn't I watch it?The bright yellow then white screen the BBC insisted on subjecting my eyes to every time there was an instant replay.I was in pain after just fifteen minutes or so.Am I the only one who finds the brightness of the screen on these changes highly uncomfortable at the very least?Is this bright flash of light really necessary?
Mindrago, Eurosport has always been run that way. The majority watched sports will always take precedence over lesser watched sports.
