I'm not in Prestatyn today for the Welsh Open qualifiers but am very interested in the matches, not least Jimmy White v Ken Doherty.
As I've said many times before, this should be on a webcam. The best way to promote snooker is to have people watch it, not pointless PR schemes that cost fortunes.
However, not only is the match not being streamed, we can't even follow worldsnooker.com's live scoring because, farcically, it doesn't work.
This is not the fault of the tournament staff, who work hard at Pontin's to run the qualifiers.
The governing body has been told countless times by them that the whole system needs to be overhauled and invested in to prevent this happening at every tournament.
Snooker's public image is low at the moment, indeed lower than it's been for some time. This is not the result of one big thing but a 100 small things, of which this is one.
I can honestly say that I get more emails from frustrated snooker fans about the failure of live scoring than anything else.
Thank goodness for Global Snooker Centre.
