Brazil Masters Day 1

I think I have a new favourite country

For anyone that missed my preview of the Brazilian Masters which begins at 6pm UK time tonight with Mark Selby against Stuart Bingham just click here.

This is simply a very brief post to list the matches that we will see later. It seems that when it isn’t on Eurosport the betting sites will be streaming it. I’ll stop short of recommending signing up to the World Snooker streaming channel as I don’t want a barrage of complaints from people that end up being in the wrong territory. But suffice to say that if you are reading this from the Wattutu Plains of Papua New Guinea with little more than bamboo to chew on and no water for at least 50 kilometres then you should be ok to input your credit card details and sign up.

If anyone has any idea how these territories work then please let me know.

Anyway here’s the matches, all best of 7. I will be very impressed with anyone that manages to catch the last one from any European country and posts in the comments to confirm this. You will be immediately upgraded to ‘superfan’ by me as it’s way past my bedtime. 

Thursday September 15 (UK Times) 
Mark Selby 4-3 Stuart Bingham 
Peter Ebdon 4-1 Stephen Lee 
Jamie Cope 2-4 Igor Figueiredo
Graeme Dott 4-1 Mark Davis

In the meantime feel free to post your bets/thoughts on the event in the comments section. One possible topic of interest might be the ticket prices, which apparently start at £45 for the first round and go as high as £350 for the final.


Anybody there?
