Ronnie, Mark Selby, Reanne Evans ans Steve Davis – 24 World titles in total – are in Cluj this week-end for two days of exhibitions.
Yesterday, they first met the press, and all of them insisted that snooker should be about enjoyment as well as winning. Ronnie confirmed that he will play in the European Championship, here in Cluj come October. All players also streesed how welcome rthey were made to feel in Romania and how wonderful the hospitality is.

Next came the match betwwen mark Selby and Reanne Evans. Mark won by 6-1, but the match was closer than the score suggests. There was no century.

Finally Ronnie played Steve Davis and beat him by 6-1. Ronnie had two centuries, a 97 … and missed a maxi. He declined to have an interval …

With a hindsight, maybe Ronnie’s reason for skipping the interval was … hunger.
It was late already and the next thing we knew on twitter was him posting:
Great to be back in Romania, 1st match done now in an amazing Italian restaurant
