Cliff Thorburn was a tough cookie when he was young...stick you on the end rail...
....then run a century on you.

Then in 1980, as the first non-Brit to win the World Professional Snooker Championship..
....he became known as The Grinder....but still ran hundreds if you couldn’t handle the traps.

Well, he’s not done yet...70years old now, he just won the Canadian Senior Championship
...and still knows where that end rail is.
He beat Floyd Zeigler, a 3-time Canuck champ, in the finals.
...Tom Finstad and Craig Carey were the semi finalists.

So the snooker world might have to wait till Cliff hits his 80s for any hangers...
....maybe he’ll start shooting at some ‘white flags’ then....

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

Ronnie's depressed folks.....

Try taking the stake money off betting Judd for O'Sullivan at the Worlds .

I will bet O'Sullivan again , just need to hope he turns up with the winner attitude the next time 1

One of the greats.
Tremendous powers of concentration, faultless shot selection and a very endearing smile!
Didn't like cheating pockets either - right in the centre with a crack!
Not a quick player, but certainly an enjoyable one to watch.
