    What a documentary on prime. So honest about the hell of mental health. Clearly the greatest player on his day. Genius

    Listened to an interview with him. Incredible childhood basically able to skip school and play at a snooker hall on his own from a very young age.

    He was frightening last night.

    Can’t wait for the Scottish Open next week. Anyone else going?

    When younger I used to play snooker to a decent level & watched every minute I could on telly at the height of its fame 80s - 90s. Went to loads of exhibitions, ie Highins v Davis @ Meadowbank & many others. I went to Abdeen for Hendry v White I think it was the Scottish Open & live snooker was not for me. Atmosphere was great but I just felt so bored. Never been to another tournament as a spectator.

    Yeah I was there Monday night (think he was scheduled to play that afternoon). Was really good - recommend the experience for snooker fans if not been before.

    Comfortable in the end vs Ding, who made a 147.

    Have just watched today's match, well in Ronnie.

    Brilliant 6th frame and brilliant post interview! Classic Ronnie O'Sullivan, on course to be the youngest and oldest winner of the masters.

    He’s some laddie. I’d like to see Carter win tomorrow though.

    The thing is I don't think he was anywhere near his best but he can grind a result out. I'm afraid Carter let the bams in the crowd get to him in those last few frames.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    Just finished watching and an enjoyable week of snooker, Carter played well untill the final hurdle. Ronnie on for the treble.

    World grand Prix starts tomorrow on ITV4, will catch up as much as I can.

    Ronnie scheduled for 20:00 tomorrow if anyone is interested.

    Him and Ali Carter trash talking each other, is quite funny.

    Semi final vs Ding on Saturday at 7pm, looking to be a O'Sullivan Trump final.

    O'Sullivan was incredible tonight. An exhibition in how to make snooker look like it's easy. He was brilliant.

    4 centuries, a 90 and a 79 in 6 frames. Amazing stuff.

    A day of sporting extremes, from watching that abject pish at Station Park to watching the master at the top of his game.

    The opening long red was outstanding and set the tone, should be a decent final tomorrow.
