Ronnie played in Derry again yesterday and going by reactions on twitter, the fans loved it. It wasn’t the highest scoring night by Ronnie, who had only one 105 … played left handed from start to finish. He also made another 50 clearance entirely left handed.
Ronnie, Jason and John Virgo were just happy that they all managed to make it for the fans after the problems they faced because of the Flybe airline collapse.
The, yesterday, this emerged on social media:
Ronnie in his first year as a pro, plays and beats Steve Davis at Pot Black Time Frame.
Twenty minutes, each player allowed 10 minutes play, each player controlling his opponent clock. Normal snooker rules – no shot clock – except that every foul gives the opponent a free ball. As many frames as fit in the 20 minutes. The goal is to have more aggregated points than your opponent when the time is over.
And, yes, Steve Davis was certainly capable of playing fast. And, yes again, seeing this, one can understand why Ronnie somtimes claims he was a better player at that age. He played with such freedom, he had no fear nor angst.
