Good on Neil, the news from Australia is difficult to watch.

I noticed the Masters were starting soon. Looking forward to catching a session or two as I am back at work soon.

Ronnie O'Sullivan's decision to pull out of the Masters is a "waste" and a call the seven-time champion will come to view as a career mistake, says World Snooker Tour chairman Barry Hearn.

Mark Selby and Ding Junhui suffered shock defeats in their opening matches of this year's Masters in London.

Ali Carter was a replacement for Ronnie O'Sullivan, who chose not to play in the tournament, and led 3-1 before falling 4-3 behind.

But he won three frames in a row to claim a 6-3 victory to eliminate three-time champion Selby.

Ding arrived at the tournament having won the UK Championship in York last month but was beaten 6-3 by Joe Perry.

Judd Trump was knocked out in the Masters first round with a 6-3 defeat by Shaun Murphy.

World number one Trump, 30, made three century breaks to take a 3-2 lead over Murphy, the 2015 Masters winner.

But Murphy edged the next three frames, including breaks of 77 and 52, before easing through the final frame to set up a quarter-final meeting with number 15 seed Joe Perry.

Later, two-time Masters champion John Higgins beat Barry Hawkins 6-1.

Scotland's Higgins will play Ali Carter in the quarter-finals.

Someone is being kicked out of the snooker for using a whoopie cushion and the commentators are livid. Absolute scenes.

Stuart Bingham became the oldest Masters winner by defeating Ali Carter 10-8 in a thrilling and fluctuating final at Alexandra Palace.

Bingham, 43, claimed his second Triple Crown event title to go alongside his 2015 World Championship win.

Carter turned around a 5-3 deficit to lead 7-5, but world number 14 Bingham showed tremendous bottle to fight back.

He sealed victory with a nerveless break of 109 - his first century of the tournament coming in the final frame.

Bingham becomes the 24th different name on the Paul Hunter Trophy, collecting a record 250,000 winner's prize money.
