Re: The Attention Seekers - Tomic the next #1

Speaking of Przysiezny, he retired in 2007 in Bastad a certain Jacob Adaktusson (career best 214).

At 32, Adaktusson is back playing futures qualies. Another smelling his chance in weak grandpa era.

Yep.

But this silvery-grey waistcoat+trousers combo doesn't suit him

Yeah, I don't like his attire, but they don't call him the Jester for nothing!

Robertson now priced at 9.2 with Betfair to win, that's a tad stingy. Four frames in a row doesn't happen very often.

Re: The Attention Seekers - Tomic the next #1

Maybe they learned from the Gould match

And that late surge looked impressive until it was stopped.

The one at the World Championship, the year he won it? Oh my, that was an impressive choke by Gould.

If roles were reversed and Selby was down 9-6, I would have more faith in a price of 9.2, but with Robertson you just feel that if another surge happened, it would be curtailed at 9-8!

It's turned into a good match, there was a danger of it becoming a 10-3 thrashing earlier.

So my plan is to go back to Krakow in 2 weeks time, but since she still live with her parents she asked me to book a hotel. Can you recommend me a good place? Oh and while you are at it, advise me some pubs/clubs as well since Nat told me you are from Krakow

That's like saying that Rafito likes clay, the understatement of the century

Yup, but he didn't need to bother with the nitty gritty stuff this time, quite a comfortable margin of victory. 10-6, which is kind of about right on the balance of play.

Robbo looks lethargic these days. And he had a relatively easy red in the last frame to start another comeback and flopped.

How did you manage to make her lose faith so quickly?

It depends on how much you are willing to spend. I recommend the Stary Hotel, the one the English team was staying in during the footie eurochamps. Classy interior, should easily woo an out and out beautiful woman, The downside is the service.

As far as pubs and clubs go, the only thing that's important for me is good beer, so I'm not really an expert on club scene . I've heard that Bomba at Plac Szczepański is very hip these days.

Might have to do a stripsy and boycott this thread now mate. You're lucky my bad rep quota has been exhausted for the year...

He's so solid these days, results wise. Before 2010/2011, he'd win an event, and then take another five events of losing early to win another one. He had that amazing record of winning every single final he was in.

More recently he's become a semi-final and final specialist, but can't seem to win titles. I still have him as one of the favourites for the World Championship, if not the main favourite. Selby doesn't seem to play well at the Crucible, and even if Ronnie comes back, I think Robbo would be too strong this year. Last year he was mighty close to beating the Rocket, that's why they called the QF match between them the 'real final'.
