Currently watching the rocket against mark Davis and when he's on form its such an honour too see him like that, like shelling peas!

He was at my friends snooker hall not that long ago for a fund raiser and had the privilege to play him as won a competition but didn't get much of a look in. If my memory serves me correct he played 11 frames and made 9 centuries.

Apart from Hendry, he's one of my greatest players ever to grace the cloth.

With him the defending champion and a few big players (Robertson and Murphy already knocked out) I reckon he's favourite to win!

Did you knock a 100 break in while Ronnie was there?

I used to like watching 'Hurricane' Higgins and The 'Whirlwind', Jimmy White. They were both Fast & Frentic but played some amazing shots. I haven't watched Snooker in Years but I did watch some Pool Tournament a while back with Steve Davis playing for Europe against the States, which I found really entertaining to watch.

I never even realised that Ronnie was still playing :shruggy:

Ronnie is the best I have seen play the game.

Makes it look easy.

Another legend produced in the Midlands.

World  number 1 mark Selby getting beat 3-1 from a 17 year old kid in a best of 7 in the 3rd round.

That's definitely a result I wasn't expecting!

Scott Donaldson 5-0 Zhou Yuelong. Great result for the Scotsman, watched a few of his frames and didn't put a foot wrong to be honest. :)

Incredible! This has been an unpredictable tournament so far mate.

Yeah unbelieveable so far. Don't know which upset was more crazy.

Ronnie O Sullivan winning 3-0 against Mark Davis to then get beat 4-3 or a 17 year old chinaman beating world number 1 Mark Selby.

I think whoever wins in the Trump/Hawkins match will go on too win it. But who knows!!

CMON THE SCOTSMAN!!

Judd Trump hasn't quite lived up to his potential imo.
