First Irish stop: Limerick


After a very short night of sleep – no more than four hours – Ronnie traveled to Limerick, Ireland, yesterday, where he was joined by Jimmy White for an exhibition with a slightly different format.

Based on the feedback on twitter, and information supplied by a very tired and overworked promoter, this is my understanding of what happened:

It was packed and very, very busy.

Both players played 3 frames against local amateurs. Jimmy won two, lost one; Ronnie won all three with a 100 in the first one.

They then played each other, in a best of three, that Jimmy won 2-1.

I hope that Ronnie gets a good rest today because they have two more similar exhibitions coming today and tomrrow. It’s hard to play well when shattered, and he hates playing badly and letting the fans down.

There were also a few pictures posted on twitter by Jason and fans
