.... the last one was shown on ITV 4 so maybe that is where this one will end up.It's going to be difficult to watch live, I would think, as it's going to be streamed on Eurosport online and also via the Eurosport app.
I've just checked on Sky and it isn't being shown on either of the Eurosport channels on that platform.
It starts at 7.30pm and it looks like it's going to necessitate a trawl through the hooky online streaming sites!!,
.... so it was Hendry who eventually came out on top by 6 frames to 3. He goes on to another three games I believe, to actually try and qualify and move on to the Crucible. Looks like Jimmy White has a much longer road to travel, and indeed his tour place definitely looks a bit dodgy. Been an interesting couple of weeks all the talk and speculation though.Stephen Hendry beats Jimmy White in World Championship qualifying - BBC Sport
That would have been a great match to watch regardless of the quality of play.
"I don’t want to be stuck in a waistcoat walking to the Crucible, it’s not cool to be wearing that nowadays, if I think that then I know people younger than me won’t want to be dressed like that either.People don’t want to go around dressed in waistcoats nowadays, they did 40 years ago but snooker is falling behind, stuck in their own ways and other sports have moved on.
"Things are never going to change unless they take a risk on advertising to different people. Otherwise you’ll get to a point where the older generation of snooker fans will be gone and you’re stuck with nobody because they haven’t appealed to the younger generation now.They can’t keep these players in the spotlight forever, they haven’t done anything for 10-15 years. Everything they’re doing is 15 years out of date and not enough is being done to advertise the younger players in the game.
He told Betfred post-match: "I made the decision [to retire] before Christmas for quite a lot of reasons.I'm not good enough to compete at any sort of level that I'd like to so there's no reason for me to play on.
However, world number 13 Allen certainly did not approve of the decision.Jimmy is one of snooker's one-time greats, not only in terms of his achievements on the table, but also in his massive worldwide popularity.
He has done so much to promote snooker through his playing style and charisma. He remains a great asset to our sport and we had no hesitation in offering him a tour card for the 2021-22 and 2022-23 seasons.
