Do folk watch this on the red button or on Eurosport? I had no idea it was on there until yesterday.

Hnedry is such a relief when in the commentary and he keeps calling different shots to Virgo. Loved him saying Dott deserved to lose the frame after playing a nothing safety which left a pot for Bingham after Bingham had broke-off. Two shots into a frame.
This morning it was Ebdon and Taylor; I turned it off after Hazel Irvine called Dott Dottie.
Dott makes it 9-6. Bingham is shitting himself. I hate Bingham more than how much I hate Dott so hoping Dott wins and then gets annihilated in the next round.

What a boring twat you are.

If you want to listen to shit banter, wrong shots being called and Virgo yelling about the cue ball going in off when it's nowhere close, then fire in.

It's a tough one. On Eurosport they just chat utter nonsense. On the flip side, Dennis Taylor loves the sound of his own voice on BBC and barely lets Hendry get a word in. Really you don't need sound at all as commentary and the crowd offer nothing to the game.

Wish they would show different matches and you could flick between them, but they pretty much always have the same game on the BBC Red Button as on Eurosport. Bellends.

Watching on  PC is the answer. BBC website lets you pick a table and if you've 2 screens, a game on each. That's the dream. Then for sound just pick the table with Hendry or McManus commentating.

The red button (sky channel 981) shows the deemed to be main match if there is no live bbc coverage or the second match if there is.
I watch one on the laptop and the other on the tv and decide which one to listen to depending on the commentary and the state of the frames.

Selby out, beaten 13-10 by Wilson.
Didn’t see almost all of the match as watching Williams but it was a fabulous 90+ break by Wilson to close the match out.
That was intense viewing this morning.

I'm fucked health wise at the moment so very grateful that there's some live sport on that I can get into.
For the last 10-15 years I've not really watched the crucible, or maybe just caught some of the semis and finals.

I have to say I'm enjoying this tournament, but I'm guessing it's nothing to do with its quality and more down to me actually sitting and concentrating on it for a change.

So for fifty quid I've got Quarter-Final tickets to watch Dave Gilbert! :lol:

Plays either Hawkins or Kyren Wilson.  :shutup

If you like hard gritty snooker you're in for some fine entertainment. 

 

With the demise of Williams I'm changing my allegiance to Gary Wilson; riding the competition of the smug arse that is Selby deserves some recognition and he's coming across well so far.  Have had Higgins from the start as well.

Alan McManus is a good commentator but is really bad at commentating. Talks endlessly and havers some utter pish in the process. The only good commentators on the BBC are Steve Davis and Stephen Hendry, as both know what they're talking about and do so succinctly.

Hawkins playing superbly. This could be an utter pumping.

Wee Seema's a real hottie though.

Could have had his lead reduced to 6-5 but managed to win the frame after an awful miss by Wilson so now 7-4.
Players usually have at least one bad session over the course of the 17 days so it's how you manage that and what damage that does in the match.

I really like the commentary, find it educational and informative and adds to my enjoyment.  If I went to watch I would definitely get the headphones.  Except Virgo, who's a c**t.

Kyren Wilson back to 9-9 after being 6-1 down.
 
Closes it out 13-11 with 2 brilliant ton plus breaks to finish.
