Watched the Snooker final last night "Northern Irish Masters".
Good game with Judd Trump beating Ronnie O'Sullivan.

It's 3rd year winning Trump has won this event (the Alex Higgins trophy) each time against O'Sullivan and even more coincidental the scoreline has alwayscbeen 9-7.

Yes, enjoyed it last night, Ronnie looked dead and buried but came back well. Trump has the all round game now, and is a formidable player.

UK Championships start today :thumbup:

He was getting £15k for himself (high break) until Stewart Bingham also made one.
The standard is getting unreal :crazy:

There was almost another one on Thursday, wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if there are some more.

I remember going for a 147 once but I missed the second red.
I once played against Don Revie.
