    Hi there,

    I like to watch snooker with British commentators and I’m happy the EuroSport Player allows you to choose the language ;)

    During the match that finished minutes ago (Neil vs. Alan), a display was shown on TV showing what the temperature of the table is. There was a number 50. What does it mean? I mean, 50C is too hot and 50F is too cold (around 10C). I’m confused.

    Thanks and kind regards from the snooker fans in Kyustendil, Bulgaria.
