As you can see there will be two matches televised each round and the matches this week are:

Monday 3 August 2009


Match 4 – Bjorn Haneveer v David Gray – Table 2

Match 7 – Xiao Guo Dong v Thepchaiya Un-Nooh – Table 1


Match 11 –  Lee Spick v Andrew Norman – Table 2

Match 15 – Noppadol Sangnil v James Wattana – Table 1

Tuesday 4 August 2009


Match 18 – David Morris v Winner of match 2 – Table 2

Match 20 – Jimmy White v Winner of match 4 – Table 1


Match 28 – John Parrott v Winner of match 12 – Table 1

Match 31 – David Roe v Winner of match 15 – Table 2

Wednesday 5 August 2009


Match 36 – Andrew Higginson v Winner of match 20 – Table 1

Match 39 – Ken Doherty v Winner of match 23 – Table 2


Match 44 – Mark Davis v Winner of match 28 – Table 2

Match 46 – Rory McLeod v Winner of match 30 – Table 1

Thursday 6 August 2009


Match 49 – Mark King v Winner of match 33 – Table 2

Match 51 – Liang Wenbo v Winner of match 35 – Table 1


Match 62 – Matthew Stevens v Winner of match 46 – Table 2

Match 64 – Steve Davis v Winner of match 48 – Table 1

As far as the selection of matches on offer is concerned I think they have done a reasonable job, though I must admit I think that some choices (hello David Roe’s opening match), are slightly strange. Obviously they have made sure that some of ‘their’ clients  such as Matthew Stevens, David Gray and Mark King will be in front of the cameras, though these players are all popular in their own right and it is difficult to argue too much.

The price will be £2.99 per session, a figure that personally I think is too high, but nevertheless it is good news that at least the option is available now. Hopefully in the future they will consider introducing discounted deals such as season tickets, either for the season, for individual tournaments or even days which will offer better value.

I do not plan on watching any of the matches this week via the service so I would be very keen on hearing from readers about the quality of the coverage. This could be regarding the quality of the stream, the commentary, the analysis, the website itself or anything else that you have an opinion on.
