I wonder if we'll see more snooker players taking it easy, it's always good to watch Ronnie on form.

I hope he doesn't retire completely. He is great to watch when on form and in my opinion the greatest Snooker player of all time. When he is happy and enjoying it he can beat any player easily with either hand. It's ridiculous. It's the best i've seen him play for years.

Every World Championship. Afterwards it always makes me want to go out and play Snooker.

I used to play, but then the two main local snooker halls closed down. One has reopened as a "Styx" which is pretty much a sports bar. No full size tables and the snooker/pool tables and dart boards are a stones throw away from the bar, not my idea of a snooker hall im afraid. So as a result I have not played for years now :(

A big one round here closed down a few years back which ruined my playing...all we got now is this run down gentleman's club that has a few tables

Miss playing snooker. Used to play it every dinner time. Most people here in the US haven't even heard of the game never mind trying to find a full size table to play on.

I used to play everyday when i was in school. That and pool. Then the place shut down and the only Snooker hall near me left, isn't the nicest of places to go but is the only place that has full sized Snooker tables.
