Ronnie O'Sullivan found the west country air to his liking as he made two 147s in an exhibition in Cornwall.
The two-times World Champion played frames against local players at the Keay Theatre, St Austell, over two nights in front of packed houses of 300.
The Rocket, who also made a 147 in winning the Kilkenny Masters last weekend, said: "It's been brilliant, I've heard so much about Cornwall before. It's absolutely stunning - a beautiful part of the country. I've been really surprised about the reception I've got here.
"I think I played really well and I gave it my best. The Keay is fantastic, it's rare you get to play snooker in a theatre now. The acoustics were amazing and it was a real treat to play here."
John Latham, principal of Cornwall College, added: "Ronnie is such a gifted player who seems to really capture the public's imagination."
