The media centre was greatly cheered on day one of the Dafabet Masters to receive a visit from MC Rob Walker, wife Becky and their new baby son Arthur. At just two weeks old, having been born on December 30, Arthur has not only visited the most prestigious invitation snooker event of them all, hob-nobbing with the likes of former world champion John Parrott, but also met darts legend Bobby George at the Lakeside in Frimley Green, where Walker has also been working early in the New Year. Perhaps fortunately, young Arthur remains too young to clearly remember that particular experience.
