The 2022 London Masters

The 2022 London Masters was played this week-end at the Alexandre Palace theatre.

The event was won by Ronnie who beat Stephen Hendry by 6-3 in the final.

On Saturday, Reanne Evans played Stephen Hendry in the afternoon, and Ronnie played Jimmy White in the evening. Stephen beat Reanne by 6-4, Ronnie beat Jimmy by 6-5. Ronnie was 3-1 down at the MSI and needed two snookers in the decider.

On Sunday, the afternoon started with some “Snooker Cabaret” before Jimmy beat Reanne by 4-1 in the “Small Final”.  In the evening, the theatre was packed. Ronnie lead Stephen Hendry by 4-0 at the MSI. Stephen fought back to trail only 5-3, but it was in vain as Ronnie took the next frame to win by 6-3.

They had an illustious visitor in the person of Sir Ian McKellen, who played Gandalf. It was allegedly the first time that Sir Ian attended a snooker match live. Hopefully he was treated with some table wizzardy.

Here are some pictures taken over the week-end and shared on social media, mainly by Jason Francis.


The fitters who set the table also shared an interesting video about the process of building and tuning the table at the venue before the event.
