2016 World Snooker Championship – Day 2

WSC16.2.1

The opening Sunday at the Crucible was the scene for my first visit of the 2016 World  Snooker Championship – my 12th year in a row and 13th in total!

Attending the afternoon and evening sessions, I saw the Scottish duo of Stephen Maguire and Alan McManus complete their first round battle before watching two young stars in Michael White and Sam Baird get their match started with the opening nine-frame session.

It also turned out to be a momentous day in the history of Snooker as a whole as the legendary 6-time World Champion Steve Davis retired from the game competitively, having failed to qualify for this year’s championship.
