I never understood that either. First to 16 to reach the final seemed enough to me!

Always suspected that it was down to it being too open to finishing with a session to spare. Think there had been quite a few like that when it was first to 16.

By the way, I thought your analysis on Higgins today was bang on. The narrative that he has found his form doesn't really match up with what I've seen. Impressive to be getting through, but he is there for the taking.

Theoretically best of 31 ought to be enough but I’m guessing they increased it after a long run of early finishes that required Jonn Virgo to plug a dud session with trickshots every year.

And a single match over three days?! Bonkers. It ain’t county cricket.

Was increased because now theirs more chance of a final session with a decent number of frames.quite easy too understand really , whether you agree the public should be more important than the players is a different matter.

31 is an awkward number for 4 sessions that's why.. amazed it was ever that in the first place.

The reason is because of format of sessions. Best of 33 is a (8-8-8-9) standard format, meanwhile best-of-31 wew (7-7-8-9) and (8-7-7-9) formats that are slightly weird. Also, people than buy a ticket has a 8-frame session, that is an usual standard

By the way, mathematically speaking, it is more possible a session to spare in a 33-frame match (9 frames are played in this session-27%, then 73% are played before) than in a 31 frame match (29% are in final session, then only 71% are played before
