So this is thread for all snooker related chat and tomfoolery, I thought we already had one but I couldn't find it.

I know we have a few snooker enthusiasts on the boards, so let us see if we can get some chatter going.

Welcome one and welcome all, Chas and Dave fans also welcome. :D

So we have the Masters going on at the moment, with the big story of the day being defending Champ Robertson coming from 5-3 down to beat Ding Junhui 6-5.

Robertson looking good so far after a shaky start then, is he still the one to beat?

The Hurricane is a legend. I love those days of snooker, where you watch a player smoke 40 fags and drink 10 pints during a match. :D

Ha, I've got a lot of time for Ronnie, most naturally gifted player ever.

The 70's and 80's was great for Snooker, I remember being allowed to stay up late for the Davis v Taylor final. :)

Was she? It's a shame what happened to him, the lifestyle caught up with him savagely in the end.

She would sit with a menthol mayfair and say, see him, a baden lol

Awk that is a fellow Northern Irish export

Yes, he was on her ward, it did and it was very upsetting
He lived 5 minutes from the hospital also and there is a mural there now

That is the one lamentable thing about snooker these days, no characters like Higgins anymore. I suppose that's why I like Ronnie so much, he's the closest thing you get these days to those guys from the 70's and 80's.

I suppose it's like the wrestling fans not being able to let go of the Attitude Era. :D

Haven't really followed Snooker for years. When I was younger though I would watch it religiously! I was always a Ronnie mark. Surely he's still one of the top guys? Last time I remember watching that Chinese kid, Ding Junghui, was just coming through. He's gotta be up there now right?

I can't play the game for shit :rolleyes: The tables are too big :p I'm decent at pub pool, and American pool. Those snooker tables though are ridiculous in size.

Damn straight.

Glad he's back, adds a bit of pep to the tournament. Plus you have to have the defending champ there.

I like the way this match against Carter is going at the moment. At this rate we're looking at another pretty convincing win for him.

I didn't even realise that the world championships were on until yesterday when I was flicking the channels :cool:

Shame on you! :p

Ronnie looked very good in that last frame. A 4-1 lead puts him in a great position now.

No snooker fans here I see lol!

Well, Ronnie is looking in prime position right now. It's been an awesome match to watch fair play. Expect Ronnie to go on to win the match from this position though.

It's a double edged sword if Ronnie wins again.

On the one hand it will do wonders to boost the popularity of snooker again but on the other what does it say about the current state of the game if he can win the World Title, disappear for a year and come back to win it again, with no competitive play under his belt in between? I know he's a one off and an exceptional talent and far and away my favourite current player but I'm not sure.

I don't buy the negative side of your coin there. I don't think that any other player on the circuit could have taken a year out and then come back and reach the semi final of the World Championship.
Plus, he's said that he's looking to playing more on the circuit next season, so it's not as if he's disappearing again.

I don't see this as being anything other than a good thing. It's just to cement that the man is a pure genius and one of if not the best ever player.

Good points for both sides, Ronnie is the most talented player in Snooker but it does feel like snooker is missing that competitiveness from couple years back when people like John Higgins and Mark Williams were at top.

Say what you want, but Ronnie O'Sullivan is the best player ever IMO. The man is a pure genius.

So O'Sullivan is in daunting form heading into the World Championships, he won it last time after not playing for so long, this time with The Masters title under his belt. Number 3 in a row and 5 altogether on the way?

Just checked up to see who won the welsh open to have my suspicions confirmed as Ronnie did indeed won it. But that's not all. Not only did he THRASH Ding 9-3, but he made a 147 break in the final frame!!

He is the best player ever, there's no doubt about that.

Yeah I watched that live on BBC, he is in amazing form. Did you see his left handed pot for the red on the right cushion? Plus he potted the final black with his left too. :D

He really does look like he's playing his best ever snooker right now, and looks to have found a real good point in his life where he's able to enjoy it too.
I didn't, I'm going to have a look for highlights of the match later tonight hopefully!
