Ronnie and Jimmy White played a Snooker Legends exhibition match yesterday in Guidford. The event was sponsored by Dafabet.
Ronnie very much looked forward to it as, earlier on the day, he tweeted:
Off to Guildford soon. Show at g live tonight with jimmy. Gonna smash it. Get down there
Before the exhibition itself, Ronnie took some time to coach local VIP players:

This morning Ronnie tweeted:
Enjoyed coaching meet & greet, good lads and hope they enjoyed it too. Gonna do them at the belfast and Preston shows if anyone’s up for it
Jimmy won the exhibition match itself by 5-4 … on the black ball shoot-out.
Here are Jason Francis “report” tweets as the match went on.
Ronnie starts with a 123 clearance! 1-0 Ronnie with 64, 2-0 Jimmy clears with 40 and its 2-1. He is in the balls in frame 4 too 2-2 at the interval Jimmy goes 3-2 up! Ronnie with 90 and its 3-3 Jimmy plays vintage stuff! 4-3 up Ronnie made it 4-4 so it’s black ball shootout time! Ronnie catches the black thick and Jimmy SCREAMS in a long black to win @Dafabet cup 5-4
Going by the fans tweets afterwards, it was, once again, a very entertaining night, that concluded with all Legends, Ronnie, Jimmy, Michaela Tabb and host John Virgo signing autographs for the fans.
