This is what I think of as proper snooker, i.e. none of this "best of nine frames" nonsense.

Barry Hawkins just can't close out matches can he? Last year he was 11-5 up against Dominic Dale then Dale fought back, but Hawkins won 13-12 and today Barry was 7-2 up against Matthew Selt and then won 10-9.

Neil Robertson comfortably through to the next round with a 10-2 win over Jamie Jones.

I seem to be making a habit of only seeing the end of sessions. I saw the last couple frames tonight, including Bingham finishing with a bit of a flukey red from a snooker, and then missing a fairly simple blue.

As we go into the final session with Stuart Bingham leading Shaun Murphy 14-11. This has quite easily been one of the best world finals for a long time.

One of the best world finals I've seen for a long time.

Well done to Stuart Bingham who has tried for 20 years as a professional to win it at the age of 38 which makes him the oldest winner since Ray Reardon. The bottle that Stuart showed during the last two frames was fantastic.

Shaun Murphy a gallant runner-up and showing some great sportsmanship in defeat.
