Embassy World Snooker Championship 2005 Part 3, Me on TV?

The quarter final stage of the competition did not go to the form book with all four higher ranked players losing to their lower ranked opponents.

In the first match Peter Ebdon controversially beat Ronnie O'Sullivan after coming from 8-2 and 10-6 behind to win 13-11. He played so slowly, O'Sullivan pretended to fall asleep and asked a member of the audience for the time. After the game he was frustrated with life (as usual) and said he would probably quit the game for a year. Shaun Murphy thrashed Steve Davis after playing well and will face Ebdon for a place in the final.

Matthew Stevens came from 11-9 down to beat Stephen Hendry 13-11 and will play qualifier Ian McCulloch who beat Alan McManus 13-8. I look forward to seeing the final session of this match, sat on the 2nd row 19 seats from the left of your screen (which i think is about level with the yellow pocket just to the right of where Stevens sits (from the TV perspective) if you want to look for me).

Only one more of these. Promise. :-)
