Don't know that we have one of these threads.

Anyway, Champion Of Champions tournament going on at the Ricoh Arena live on ITV4.

Ronnie is currently on right now. Plenty of noisy fireworks going off too which must be slightly off putting.
 
Bit surprised to read Jimmy White admitting this week that he was a crack addict in the early 80s. Until I remembered reading Ronnie Wood's autobiography, Ronnie, in which he admitted he was a crack addict in the early 80s.
 
I like watching snooker.
 
I miss being able to watch snooker .

Early 90's mate.

Anyway, despite not watching much of it these days, as the players aren't as entertaining anymore, snooker is the game I'm best at. Have a lovely cue at home that hasn't seen the light of day in almost 2 years. need to sort that, theres a club in Fairview which is around the corner from me.

Used to love Hendry and Ronnie back in the day, and Paul Hunter
 
Jimmy White said on five live that he thought he could still win the world championship. While I think most people have wanted the Whirlwind to be world champion, sadly I think it is too late for him now.
 
I did! Is that where the 'Captain' nickname comes from?

Not really a contest this afternoon unfortunately (the first chance I've had all week really to catch any of it), two whitewashes with Robertson and Walden too strong for Carter and Allen.

I think it was too late in 1993.
 
Good god there's some shit entrance music that snooker players choose.

Ricky Walden has Sherry Baby. WTF?

And Neil Robertson went for some Pirates Of The Caribbean score for some baffling reason.


I would have had Voodoo Chile by Hendrix myself.
 
Masterful stuff from Ronnie despite a rally from Trump in the evening session, easily played the best snooker of anyone over the tournament.
 
Also watching snooker quite regularly
.thought Ronnie was gone some years ago..but he has come back amazingly since that..jimmy white with binocular glasses would be nice and steve davis getting another shout
 
Ronnie O'Sullivan today broke Stephen Hendry's record for centuries in matches. O'Sullivan scored the 776th century of his career in his match against Marco Fu.
 
Yep. And Hendrie's record of 42 Masters match wins. Ronnie now on 43.

Fu barely put up a fight today. Was too tentative and Ronnie strolled it.
 
Murphy won 10 -2. Robertson was never in it, just about as one sided as you can get.
 
He looked out of sorts and had visible bags under his eyes IMO.
I reckon that win over Ronnie took a lot out of him mentally.
 
The World Championship starts today at the crucible. Defending champion Mark Selby in action today.
