does anyone know if these are going to be on television this year? I assume we'll get an abridged version later this year on ESPN. Will a live version be shown on Sky or some other European or Asian television? In what countries will it be available?

Why would you assume this? /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

To my knowledge, we didn't get any version of last years World Chanpionsip matches, on ESPN.

Maybe I'm mistaken, but I thought I had seen it last year.

It was on live in Thailand last year. It should be on live again this year. Probably on Star Sports (Cable). Star Sports is broadcast from Singapore.

It wasnt on ESPN last year but it was on FOX Sports World and there were 8 2hour highlight shows over 2 weeeks.
I have dish network so I could get Fox Sports World but Im not sure if you can get that channel on regular cable. I tivoed all the 8 shows and they were great.

Erik- that must be where I saw it. I'm trying to work out a deal with a guy in germany who's getting all of it recorded on dvd. Last year and this year.

How'd the nine ball tournament go at Pockets wednesday. The wife had some chores for me. Dennis
