I think your first guess is probably correct. I remember watching BBC world champs a few years ago when he and Willy Thorne were filmed watching Leicester win the title on a TV in a cupboard at Crucible and he definitely cracked a smile then (if only just)

Great snooker tonight. Bingham smiling and enjoying himself. The “Jester from Leicester” with a face like thunder!
What a frame that was - about an hour and a lot of drama. I think the best man won it in the end - that blue though where he snookered himself behind the black!!

Snooker, when you get one of THOSE matches it is still one of the best things to watch on the telly, especially now the crowds are back. How do you do a 4 ball plant then miss an easy yellow?! Didn’t bother with Southampton 1 Leicester 1.

Great session last night, one of the best I’ve seen in a while. All set up really nicely for today. I know what I’ll be spending a lot of the weekend doing! Could go late as well as theses boys take their time but still very intriguing to watch.

I would like the young lad Wilson to win overall - I think I watched him in the final last year when inexperience probably cost him but he looks more composed this year.

I would also like to see Wilson and for the same reasons you quote. Saying that, I watched him the other day and was saying how much he had improved and he missed a simple blue.
It's been a great championship so far.
I think the crowds have helped.

I always think they are playing minds games with their opponents when that happens (Opponent thinks they are over the line and they drag it out).

I'd like Murphy or Wilson to win it, Murphy always seems to play with a smile on his face and loves playing the odd exhibition shot. Wilson because I think the final was just a step to far for him last season and he had a tough semi I seem to recall that took a lot out of him.

One thing that has annoyed me is BBCs coverage, its not like they have a plethora of live sport and their coverage has been shocking in comparison to Eurosport. I thought I'd grab a bit of the 1/4 finals earlier in the week and low and behold they took it off in the middle of a frame to go to Politics Live and yesterday I think it was the afternoon session finished about half 5 and rather than have a bit of review with Trump and Davis, they cut straight off and showed a god knows how old episode of Flog It. They aren't even keeping it up to date on the live text service, very annoying!!!

Completely agree re the BBC, I much prefer the Eurosport coverage and Virgo gets on my nerves...Joe Johnson is the best commentator my a mile IMO

I'm rooting for Kyren to win, he seems to be improving with every game. I've said on here before I think he will go onto become world number 1. I love his little routine before he gets down for a shot. They reckon he's a nice guy also. Having said that what characters Bingham and Murphy are, they are both entertainer's.
