ALLEN AND ROBERTSON ARE YOUR ONES TO WATCH

allen-mark-win3322.jpg
Mark Allen and Neil Robertson, both outstanding performers in the Northern Ireland Trophy, have been voted snooker's Ones to Watch by worldsnooker.com readers.
20 Aug 2005 18:18:00
World Amateur champion Allen, the 19-year-old from Antrim, beat Steve Davis and John Higgins on his professional debut in Belfast. Australia's 23-year-old Robertson reached the semi-finals before losing to Matthew Stevens, having knocked out world champion Shaun Murphy.

Our comeptition asked you which player, aged 26 or younger and without a previous major title, is most likely to make an impact this season. Allen and Robertson were tied with 36% each, while there were also votes for Ricky Walden, Judd Trump, Jamie Cope and David Morris.
The winner is Ryan Wride from Bristol who will receive a pair of tickets to a major tournament this season. He said:
World under-21 champion only two years ago, Neil Robertson, the flamboyant Aussie, looks set to cement his place among the world's elite in the coming season. Quarter-final appearances in Malta and Wales last season is surely only the beginning of the journey to his first ranking event victory.
Here are a few more entries:
Mark Allen will make a big impact this season. He is a fantastic young talent and has said he cannot wait to start on the professional circuit. Those are the words of a willing young star and a future big name for snooker. If he puts some hard work into snooker this season, I feel he could win atleast one title.
Chris Windle, Bedfordshire
Mark Allen is the one to watch – definitely!! His amazing cue action and fearlessness around the table means he will go all the way. Don’t be surprised if he wins a FEW ranking tournaments this season and be guaranteed you will see him at the Crucible!!!
Shauna O’Neill, County Antrim
Having struggled initially as an overseas player, Neil Robertson has since settled in the UK and accomplished consistent and commendable results. I reckon he'll pick up his first ranking tournament this season, as he's proven to a wide audience that he has what it takes to compete with the best.
Jasen Rengasamy, Australia

9. Ronnie O’Sullivan v Peter Ebdon, World Championship quarter-final 2005
10. Ronnie O’Sullivan v Stephen Hendry, World Championship semi-final 2004
The standard in this match has long been surpassed, but it remains a classic. The lead. The comeback. The tension. The misses. The sweaty brows. The grim faces. The 1am finish. The whisper from Ted (“No…”). The pot from Dennis. And the pointed finger. Timeless.

Doherty coming from 15-9 down to beat Hunter 17-16 was one of the best semi-finals in the past few years and made the build up to the 2003 final all the more exciting. Either finalist that year would have entered the elite of players who have become world champ more than once.
John Callaghan from Sheffield:
1) Steve Davis v Dennis Taylor, 1985 World Championship final

9) Stephen Hendry v Ronnie O’Sullivan, 2005 Welsh Open final
10) Alex Higgins v Ray Reardon, 1982 World Championship semi-final
The Davis v Taylor final is the best match of all time due to the length of the match, the final result (the underdog winning) and the fact that it went down the last frame and the last ball. And so many easy blacks were missed, nail biting!
Polina Tchernyaeva from Russia
1. Steve Davis v Dennis Taylor, World Championship final 1985
2. Stephen Hendry v Ronnie O’Sullivan, Welsh Open final 2005

10. Stephen Hendry v Ding Junhui, China Open final 2005
The Davis v Taylor match is the best ever. It is the classic of snooker and shows the real beauty of it! This match is not only a vivid example of the excellent snooker game, but it puts any snooker lover on the edge of their seats as well!!! The most memorable thing in this match is Taylor’s will to win. When Davis took an 8-0 lead, almost nobody believed that Taylor had a chance, but he managed to pull something out of the bag for an 18-17 victory!! It was brilliant!!!

CHOOSE YOUR FAVOURITE SNOOKER VENUE

Worldsnooker.com readers have voted the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield as the world's best venue for snooker.
29 Jul 2005 14:41:00
Over 45% of entrants made the Crucible, home to the World Championship since 1977, their number one. In second place was Wembley Conference Centre which gained 27% of the vote.

The winning entry comes from Caroline McAuslan from Glasgow, who will receive a pair of tickets to major tournament next season. She said:
The best snooker venue has to be the Crucible at Sheffield - legends are made, hopes dashed, dreams built and little bits of magic happen each year. It holds a special atmosphere that no other venue in the sport has. It is renowned as the heart of the game throughout the world. Snooker would lose something special if it wasn’t held there.

A few further entries:
Stephen Meadows from London:
Without doubt the Crucible. By allowing the surrounding crowd to be so close to the action, it generates a purely electric atmosphere because they actually become PART of the action - not just observers of it. And, more importantly for snooker, this actually allows the players to connect with the fans.
Allison from West Yorkshire:
The Crucible at Sheffield has got to be THE best venue for snooker. It starts as soon as you reach Sheffield..you can smell it and feel it, it sends shivers down your spine! Then when you see it...WOW. The sporting greats flash back in your mind as you climb the steps inside to reach the outer auditorium, then as the doors open to the seats it is there in all its glory and it is breathtaking, no words can describe the arena!

Tero Poikonen from Finland:
The ground floor of my house. I’m there against Ronnie, enjoying the warmness of the fireplace and looking at the baize; green as the surrounding forest, and smooth as the surface of the lake next to the house. I’m just about to pot the black and beat the Rocket - then I wake up.

SNOOKER FUNNIES

Thanks for your entries into worldsnooker.com's snooker funnies competition, here are the best stories...
13 Jul 2005 14:10:00


The winner is Ardavan Nazari from Tehran in Iran for his amusing tale of his family’s first taste of snooker:

I had a chance to watch the 2005 World Championship live on Eurosport for the first time in my life. I wouldn’t let my parents or my brother watch TV for two weeks.
My father, 60 years old and retired, has never touched a cue and always asked me to watch the news instead of snooker. But after a week, he started to ask questions about the points of colours and the rules.
After the first week of the Championship, I couldn’t stay awake late at night because I was sleepy at work.
Once I woke up at 2am to drink some water. Surprisingly I saw that the TV was on. I found my father watching snooker, and he asked me what a touching ball is!
He also made some Iranian names for the players which best suited them, because he couldn’t remember the English names. For example, he named Peter Ebdon ’fekri’, which means someone who thinks a lot, and ’kachal’ for Ronnie O’Sullivan which means shaved head.
Before the final, my brother started to ask my father some questions about snooker to make fun of him, but he was surprised by the answers. My brother still can’t believe that our father could explain the rule of the touching ball.
Thenceforth, snooker and those magic players became a part of our life.
He wins a pair of tickets to a major tournament next season.

And a few more of the best entries:
Dervoigne Thierry from Belgium:
I saw an exhibition with Dennis Taylor where he answered questions from the crowd. He was asked: "Do you think that one day someone will make a robot to play perfect snooker?"
Dennis answered: "We’ve already got one. He’s called Steve Davis."

Bernard Greep from Wigan:
On an instruction video, Steve Davis walked into the corner of the table while strolling around, striking himself in a very sensitive area. To the amusement of the live audience Steve instantly said: “At last, I’ve got a cannon.”
Mark Carrington from Manchester:
One night my club team were playing our league match, and during the first frame our player was using the spider to cue over the pack of reds.
When he had finished his shot, he was lifting the spider off the table and the head fell off the spider and scattered the reds everywhere! You can imagine the laughter!
About ten minutes after this, one of the light bulbs mysteriously fell out on to the table and smashed everywhere! I’ve been playing snooker for 25 years and have never known two occurences like that in the same frame!
