PREVIEW: WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP DRAW

Usually, I would have a thoroughly detailed preview, analysing over who I think will win each section to qualify for the Field of Dreams known as the County Gro- the Crucible. I mean the Crucible.

Unfortunately, I am unable to do that, so I plan to use the knowledge/randomness on Twitter instead. Because of various things happening (nothing serious, don’t worry!) I cannot be so in-depth, apart from deciding who I think will win. Also, I’ve been invited to watch some football and I could do with a drink.

The qualifying will take place at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield from 11th to 18th April 2018. This is bloody exciting so I can’t wait! Be sure to check the #PeopleWhoStareAtLiveScores with a couple of German bloggers who will randomly chat about the scores till late. We survived the longest match in history with Fergal O’Brien and David Gilbert – I’m sure we can manage!
