It's so great that Eurosport has so much coverage - last year they had nothing.

Hmm, but will Ken Doherty beat John Higgins if they both come through? (I apologise to my Scottish friends on this board... ) Ken has always played well here - he won this tournament in 1997... I would like him to win it again!! KEN!! KEN!! KEEEEEEN!!

Thanks for the scores GoDominique...

Ah another year of no personalities, bring back Alex Higgins!

Fancy Paul Hunter this year (not literally) He's a cock, but can see him doing well

Williams, O'Sullivan, Hendry.........noooooooooooooo thank you, all arrogant and huffy when things go wrong

Doherty, Higgins or Ebdon again please
