Ronnie O'Sullivan said that he hopes he is creating a legacy of thrilling snooker after winning the Maplin UK Championship.
The Rocket delighted the Telford crowd with a demonstration of superb break-building in a 10-2 defeat of Stephen Maguire to claim his fourth UK title.
"Snooker is about showtime to me, it’s all about the big matches," said the 32-year-old from Chigwell. "I love this tournament, the Masters the World and the Premier League, those are the ones I want to do well in.
"The crowds here have been great all week and they’ve given me so much support. I think I give a lot to people with the way I play, I bring excitement and maybe that’s as good as seven world titles.
"I think I’m unique in the way I attack the game with speed. It’s like if I turn on the TV and Tiger Woods is playing, I’ll watch it because I wonder what he’s going to do. It’s a great honour for me to give that kind of joy."
As for his performance today, O’Sullivan said: "I played great, I capitalised whenever Stephen broke down on 20 or 30. I got into a rhythm, I scored well and put him in trouble. I think I’ve stumbled on a consistency that I haven’t felt for about 14 years.
"There was pressure on every stroke because I knew that Stephen would put me away if I made mistakes. Even at 8-0 I kept my brain in gear and I knew I had to play the right way to win and be strong until the end.
"I think experience was the difference today. Stephen will take a lot from this and come back stronger. I don’t want to keep playing him over the next few years because he worries the life out of me, he’ll send me to an early grave."
O’Sullivan, who has seemed completely focussed this week, touched on the reason behind his current stability on and off the table. "The way I deal with depression is through running, it gives me a social life and makes me feel good," he said.
"I have to put my health first because I’m in the public eye and people expect a lot of me, which can be hard."
Finally, the charismatic cueman mentioned his partner Jo and 22-month-old daughter Lily, who joined him in the arena to celebrate. "Success is all the better when you can share it with your family."
Maguire, who failed in his bid to become the 11th player to win back-to-back ranking titles, said: "After I went 4-0 down I was just trying my hardest to get a frame on the board, because the way it was going and the way I felt, I was thinking about the whitewash.
"So at 8-0 I just tried to come back refreshed and I was relieved to win a frame. I had a couple of chances early on in the match, I could have been 2-2 instead of 4-0 down but I missed two reds to a middle pocket and you don’t get second chances against Ronnie.
"This has woken me up because I need to improve to get to that standard. At least I know that now. I’m going in the right direction and moving up the rankings.
"Ronnie was very solid, even at 8-1 he was playing the right shots. I rate Hendry and Davis as the best players because they have won the most titles, but if Ronnie can stay focussed he could win as many."
15 December: O'Sullivan: "I needed something to keep myself focussed during the match so I decided to count the dots on my spoon. There were 108 on one side and 112 on the other. I couldn't watch the game so I had to have something to help me go into myself and keep me interested."
14 December: Maguire: "If it is Ronnie in the final, that would be the biggest test you could have. But I’m not scared of him if I can produce my own level."
13 December: O’Sullivan, often excessively self-critical after victory, said today: "I was at my best from when I was 12 until I was 16. After that something went wrong. I just hope I can recover some of that form before I retire."

15 Dec 2007
Ronnie O'Sullivan won his Maplin UK Championship semi-final with Mark Selby 9-8 in magnificent fashion with a 147 break in the deciding frame.
It was the perfect finish to the match for the Rocket as he equalled Stephen Hendry’s career record of eight maximum breaks. All of O’Sullivan’s have been in ranking events.
O’Sullivan had struggled to find his best form up to that point, but his glorious climax send the Telford International Centre crowd into rapture, and earned him a best-of-19 final against Stephen Maguire tomorrow.
Chigwell’s 32-year-old O’Sullivan made a maximum in the Northern Ireland Trophy last month and thus becomes only the second player, after John Higgins, ever to make 147s in consecutive ranking tournaments.
Tonight’s maximum, which earns O’Sullivan a £30,000 bonus providing it’s not equalled, is the 60th in snooker history, 37th in a ranking event and fourth of the season.
O’Sullivan has not won a ranking title in 33 months but has a chance to end that drought tomorrow if he can win his fourth UK title. The winner of his clash with Maguire will also take top spot in the provisional rankings.
Leicester’s Selby led 5-3 after the first session and extended his lead in the first frame tonight with a break of 42.
O’Sullivan fought back to 6-5 with 75 and 76 before Selby won frame 12 with a 65. In the 13th, Crucible runner-up Selby led 30-12 when he failed to judge a cannon in potting a red. O’Sullivan capitalised superbly with a 78.
He dominated the next to draw level at 7-7, then took the lead for the first time with a 63 after Selby had missed a simple red on 28.
Selby bravely fought back to 8-8 with a 60. But when he failed on a long red early in the decider, his chance was gone.
O’Sullivan potted the red, converted an excellent risky thin cut on the black to a centre pocket, and from there never looked like missing, as 14 more reds and blacks and all the colours found their targets.
"It was nice to give the crowd something to cheer about at the end," said O’Sullivan. "This is a great venue and a great tournament but my snooker tonight was not great, it was so poor. I played 16 poor frames but everyone now will be talking about the 147 so I feel like I’ve cheated, or taken a short cut. I’d rather have won 9-3, playing solid and not making any unforced errors.
"The first black in the 147 was a blind shot but it wasn’t as hard as it looked. It was 8-8 and I felt like I wanted to get something out of the game, to go out in a blaze of glory. Once I got to 40 I decided to go for it, and I felt a few butterflies which was good.
"It’s nice to get to eight 147s, I’d like to get to double figures, maybe get one at the Masters and at Sheffield and make four this season.
"Mark had the upper hand for most of the match, he’s a tough competitor, you don’t get to a world final otherwise. At 6-3 I was losing it, really struggling. There was no fluency, no power or finesse in my shots. I was a foot out on some of my positional shots."
As for the match with Maguire, O’Sullivan added: "Stephen said in an interview that he’s been watching me and noticed I’m giving away chances. He’s right, and only a few people would recognise that. I’ve been playing quickly and scoring ok, which has camouflaged the fact that I’m making a lot of mistakes. The bookmakers will make me favourite for tomorrow but I’d make Stephen favourite. If I play like I did today I’ll get beaten because Stephen is a winner."
Selby said: "It was a brilliant end to the match. I’ve had a good week and I wouldn’t change anything. At 7-5 I had a good chance in the balls and after that it seemed to change."

13 Dec 2007
RONNIE O’SULLIVAN insists he will use, not lose, his head again as he closes in on yet another snooker title.
It is exactly a year since The Rocket downed tools in York and staged an amazing wildcat walkout in the middle of the Maplin UK Championship.
O’Sullivan was trailing 4-1 to fierce rival Stephen Hendry when he picked up his cue and quit the quarter-final match — to the stunned amazement of his opponent.
It was an act that surpassed even the always unpredictable standards of the game’s most enigmatic character.
But the two-time world champ is back in the last eight today where Jamie Cope — who put out another former world champion John Higgins — awaits him.
O’Sullivan, 32, said: “I’m using my loaf a little bit more. I am trying to use my mind a little bit more so I don’t get fed up and bored, as there is a tendency and danger of that.”
O’Sullivan suffers wild mood swings and won his first Crucible crown in 2001 while on the anti-depressant Prozac.
Going AWOL last year cost him a £20,000 fine — and dented his hard-won status as the People’s champion.
But O’Sullivan insists he will stay the distance this time.
It is nearly three years since he won a ranking tournament but, in the meantime, the Rocket has scooped the Premier League title and the Masters.
He added: “My worst moments were 10 years ago when I couldn’t even get out of a room.
“I have to get things in perspective. Sometimes I could not even get out of a room. I would come out play a game and go back.
“I wasn’t in a bad frame of mind last year. I know it’s hard to understand that, given I walked out of a match.
“There was stuff going on with me. I suffer mood swings and depression.
“I can feel like I can’t be bothered and have to play tricks on my mind to make me play at the potential I am capable of, to keep myself in a positive frame of mind.
“At least I can socialise now, sometimes I feel I don’t want to be at the venue but it’s never as bad as it was.
“It might have looked bad last year but it wasn’t as bad as it has been. It was a game of snooker — and your health’s more important.
“I’m OK at the moment, I just need to play a bit better.”
13 Dec 2007
Ronnie O'Sullivan scored another resounding victory at the Maplin UK Championship to progress to the semi-finals.
The Rocket followed up on his 9-1 win over Mark King with a 9-2 hammering of Jamie Cope to earn his sixth UK semi. He won the event in 1993, 1997 and 2001 and will take some stopping if he is to be denied a fourth title.
It’s been 33 months since O’Sullivan won a ranking title, but so impressive is his current form surely that his drought cannot go on for long. He faces Mark Selby for a place in Sunday’s final in Telford.
Leading 6-2 after the first session, O’Sullivan opened tonight with a break of 82. He was on for a 147 in the next - which would have equalled Stephen Hendry’s career record of eight maximums - but narrowly failed to double the final red to a centre pocket on 112. Runs of 47 and 32 in frame 11 completed the rout.
"My break-building has been very good this season and my long potting is coming together," said 32-year-old O’Sullivan. "I managed to mount sustained pressure on Jamie and force the openings. I was disappointed not go get the 147, but if I start cueing well, there’s no reason why I can’t make one.
"I like the way Jamie plays, he’s free-flowing and carefree. I’m the oldest player left in the tournament so maybe I just had a bit more expereince.
"The crowds have been fantastic here all week and we get a good reception. Other players tend to raise their games when there’s a good crowd - that’s what I was like when I was a kid taking on a top player, because I knew I had to produce. I always expect my opponents to play well against me."
When asked about his long wait for a ranking title, O’Sullivan added: "It will end soon if I play decent snooker but there are some great players about. It’s just nice to be part of the tournament and to be able to enjoy it."
Nearly four hours after O'Sullivan's match finished, Selby joined him the last four with a hard-fought 9-7 defeat of Royal London Watches Grand Prix champion Marco Fu.
Crucible runner-up Selby won the first three frames tonight to go 7-4 up, making breaks of 59, 49 and 65. Hong Kong's Fu won the next with a 132 then Selby rolled in 59 for 8-5.
Runs of 53 and 67 saw Fu pull back to 8-7. The next frame broke the record for the longest ever televised frame, lasting 77 minutes 31 seconds. It came down to the colours and finally ended when Fu, needing a snooker on the blue, failed to escape from a snooker himself and a relieved Selby knocked in the blue.
"I knew I would break some records in snooker - but I'm not sure that's one I want!" said world No 11 Selby. "I didn't really get a chance in the previous two frames, then when it looked like going 8-8 the nerves started to set in, so I was pleased to get over the line.
"Marco is a great player and winning the Grand Prix has given him self belief so I knew he would be dangerous. I know I need to play a lot better against Ronnie so I'll be on the practice table tomorrow. To get to the semis of the second biggest ranking event is a great achievement."
11 Dec 2007
Ronnie O'Sullivan swiftly dismissed the challenge of Mark King at the Maplin UK Championship.
The three-times UK Champion from Chigwell led 7-1 after a superb opening session this morning, and soon added the two frames he needed tonight with breaks of 49, 41 and 40.
O’Sullivan, seeking his first ranking title in 32 months, now faces Jamie Cope or Barry Hawkins in the quarter-finals.
Despite the margin of victory, O’Sullivan declined to talk up his form. "I can’t allow myself to say that was a good performance, it was a win but that’s it," said the 32-year-old.
"There were far too many unforced errors for my liking. Mark helped me by making a lot of mistakes. I left him among the balls plenty of times but he didn’t punish me.
"The scoreline flatters me massively. I want to improve but I don’t know whether I need to. I’m my own biggest critic and I can’t believe I won the Premier League and got to the final of the (Royal London Watches) Grand Prix playing the way I am."
O'Sullivan will now play Jamie Cope, conqueror of John Higgins, who edged out Barry Hawkins 9-8. From 2-2, there was never more than a frame between them.
Stoke's Cope eventually won it with a break of 105 in the deciding frame after Hawkins' early chance saw him go in-off in potting the blue.
"I couldn't ask for a bigger match than to play Ronnie and I'm really looking forward to it," said Cope. "I don't fear Ronnie, you can't afford to fear anyone."
Marco Fu, who beat the O'Sullivan in the Aberdeen final, joined him in the last eight with a 9-2 success over Joe Perry.
The Hong Kong player was 7-1 up after the first session and soon added the two he needed.
Fu now plays Crucible finalist Mark Selby, another to enjoy a smooth passage as he beat Dave Harold 9-2. Leading 6-2 after the first session, Selby cruised through with further runs of 99 and 120.
Northern Ireland Trophy champion Stephen Maguire continued his superb recent run of form with a 9-5 defeat of Ian McCulloch.
Preston’s McCulloch recovered from 7-3 down to 7-5 before Glasgow’s Maguire won the last two to earn a meeting with Mark Williams.
10 Dec 2007
Ronnie O'Sullivan survived some nervous moments to get the better of Michael Holt at the Maplin UK Championship.
Three-times UK Champion O'Sullivan looked in trouble when he trailed 6-5 to world No 24 Holt, but the Rocket recovered to win the last four frames for a 9-6 victory. He goes through to the last 16 to face Mark King.
Nottingham's Holt won the first three frames today with a top break of 62. Chigwell's O'Sullivan then stopped the rot with a 50 to make it 6-6, then edged a scrappy 13th frame to go ahead.
In the next, O'Sullivan made 68 before accidently knocking the pink in, trying to pot a red. That gave Holt a chance to snatch it and he got to the last green before missing a tough long pot. O'Sullivan capitalised to go 8-6 up and completed victory in the next with 46 and 25.
The Rocket has not won a ranking title for almost three years, but has been in consistent form this season, reaching the final of the Royal London Watches Grand Prix and winning the Premier League. "I have to improve but I wouldn't count myself out," said the 32-year-old.
"I didn't play well at the Grand Prix but I still got to the final. My long game is non-existent, any pot over 5 feet is a real problem. That's been the same for ages. It turned out tough today but I hung in there. It's frustrating, I can't get the same satisfaction from the game if I can't dominate."
By Saj Chowdhury
Michael Holt does not believe Ronnie O'Sullivan is suffering from a slump in form despite having not won a ranking event in two years.
Holt is set to meet the two-time world champion and former number one on Sunday in the first round of the UK Championship in Telford.
"He won the Premier League recently and the Masters last season," the 29-year-old told BBC Sport.
"He'll win a ranking event again, although I hope it's not next week."
O'Sullivan is currently second in the provisional rankings having started the season in fifth.
The 32-year-old reached the final of the Grand Prix, where he was beaten by Marco Fu, and the last eight of the Northern Ireland Trophy.
"I'm looking forward to playing him," said the Nottingham potter, who beat The Rocket in the last 16 of the Malta Cup during the 2006/2007 campaign.
"I've played Ronnie about four or five times and come out on top just the once - but that was the last time we met."
He added: "He's a genius. When Ronnie's playing well all of the players watch him and say 'wow'. Obviously, he does get beaten, so you have to make sure you stick in there and take your chances against him."
Holt is currently 31st in the provisional rankings having had a relatively quiet season up until now.
"My target this campaign was to get into the top 16, which is still achievable," he said.
"There are few of us are bunched up behind the current number 16 Joe Perry and it's quite tight.
"But I'm more concerned about winning ranking events - if that results in me making it into the elite group, so be it."
Holt, who has grafted outside the top 16 during his career, is optimistic about the future of the sport.
"There are regular tournaments in China now because snooker is massive over there," he said.
"There is a lot of talent coming through from that part of the world which has and will result in more investment and sponsorship.
"That's great for the sport as a whole and also helps put money in the pockets of players like me."
Eurosport - 06 December
Shropshire favourite Adrian Gunnell has called for fans to show him the support to help him get his own back on Chinese star Ding Junhui in his first-round match at the UK Championship.
Gunnell came through two tough qualifying matches to book his place in the final stages of the tournament, which begins in Telford on Saturday.
"I played Ding in the China Open in Beijing earlier this year and he beat me 5-3," the 35-year-old Gunnell told World Snooker.
"It was tough playing him there because he has massive support and I knew most of the crowd were willing me to miss.
"It will be different this time as I will have the crowd behind me. I hope as many people as possible will come to support me and it would be great if there was a full house for the match. It's over a weekend so that should allow fans to come along.
"Ding is a brilliant player but he is young and perhaps a bit brittle and naïve. If the crowd can help me put pressure on him then I might have a chance."
Gunnell, whose could move into the top 32 of the provisional world rankings with a decent performance, added that failure to qualify for his home tournament would have been difficult to stomach.
"It's great to get through because it's fantastic for Telford to have this tournament and I wouldn't have enjoyed being around if I hadn't qualified."
Meanwhile, Ricky Walden says he is looking forward to his all-Welsh first-round clash against former World Champion Mark Williams.
"I won a group match against Mark in the Grand Prix which is a bit of a boost so I know I can beat him," said Walden. "I will be practicing every day this week. I am playing well and am going there really confident.
"I'll just take each match as it comes. If I keep my form up I can do some damage and get through to the latter stages. It is all to play for and I hope to show what I can do, and do the business there."
As it's quite big tournament and I want to make it more interesting, I have decided to make more stages. If you will tip for the winner of qualification player from the first round and he will really win it, your tip will be awarded 4 points. If you will tip player from the second round, you will recieve 3 points in case of his victory. For player from the third round you will receive 2 points and for the player from the fourth round just one point. For clearness I marked players from each rounds with different colour (at the same time you can check the drawsheet - link below). Players of the first round are marked red, players of the second round are marked blue, players of the third round are marked greene and players from the last round are marked black.
You can send me your tips up to 22 November. Good luck :-)
