Ross Kemp's Nan's World Snooker Round-up: Day 10

Funny story: Ross Kemp's Nan's World Snooker Round-up: Day 10

Today is the last day in the second round and Ali Carter, Matthew Stevens, Ronnie O'Sullivan and Jamie Jones all book their place in the Quarter-Finals. Jamie Jones is definitely not the same Jamie Jones who plays in goal for Leyton Orient. It would be spooky if he were, as Barry Hearn is the Chairman of Leyton Orient and World Snooker. Everyone would call it a fix. And we had enough of that tw...

Funny story: Ross Kemp's Nan's World Snooker Round-up: Day 9

Today saw the finish of the Joe Perry v Stephen Maguire match - which I have tenuously linked to Jerry Maguire - as in Perry Maguire - geddit? No-one said writing a daily snooker blog would be easy. With foresight, I should have linked this match to yesterdays (Day 8) marriage proposal at the Crucible by Brian Wright to Lisa Dunks. "You had me at hello..." Theirs no Tom Cruise in the arena...

Funny story: Ross Kemp's Nan's World Snooker Round-up: Day 8

Stephen Hendry booked his place in the quarter-final by wrapping up his comprehensive victory over defending Champion John Higgins 13-4. He joins Neil Robertson in the Quarters. In the old days when the games finished early, Dennis Taylor would pop out and tell his 'WC1' joke. Or John Virgo would play a few trick shocks.

Funny story: Ross Kemps Nan World Snooker Round Up Day 6

Well as the first round nears completion, so far half of the sixteen seeds have been beaten. World number one Mark Selby became the record-equalling eighth seed to be eliminated after a heavy 10-3 defeat by Barry Hawkins.

Funny story: Ross Kemps Nan World Snooker Round Up Day 5

Mark Williams beat Liu Chuang 10-6 to set up a match with another former winner Ronnie O'Sullivan. The Welshman has never beaten Ronnie at the Crucible in three attempts.

Funny story: Ross Kemp's Nan's World Snooker Round Up Day 4

The expected fireworks between Ronnie O'Sullivan and Peter Ebdon never materialized - perhaps Health & Safety sent them a memo? Ronnie won comfortably by 10-4 and could face Mark Williams in the next round. Also through is Andrew Higginson who beat Stephen Lee 10-6. Andrew Higginson is not from Finland, therefore he is not the son of John (or Alex) Higgins. Former champ Shaun Murphy w...

They say the sign of a misspent youth is being a good snooker player. Well Belgian teen Luca Brecel must have grown up playing snooker using a stool to reach the table.
