I arrived at the Crucible from the back side so first thing I saw was the stage door, saw Ding Junhui, Stephen Hendry, Barry Hawkins and various others throughout the days.

Sheffield Winter Gardens

BBC Studio and Cue Zone

BBC Studio and the CueZone table in the background. Had a doubles game on the table, amazingly fast cloth but was given an awful cue so didn't do very well..
