On the 9th April 2011 I was the Crucible Theatre to witness the second Snooker Legends event to be held at the venue. This years Snooker Legends featured many greats of the game including Cliff Thorburn, Jimmy White, John Parrott and Dennis Taylor with a special guest appearence from Kirk Stevens.
The reigning 6 reds world champion Mark Davis is the latest snooker star to be interviewed on ryan147.com
Mark Davis turned professional at the start of the 1991/92 season. At 37 years of age he seems to have been playing some of the best snooker of his career over the past couple of seasons.
Last season Davis won the first ever 6 reds World Championship, beating Mark Williams 6-3 in the final, in probably the victory of his career. Other tournament wins have been the 2007 German Open and the 2003 B&H Championship, but Mark is yet to have won a ranking event.
Currently 2010 is one of the best years for Mark as he is currently ranked 18th in the World which is his highest ever ranking and in China in March he recorded his highest ever tournament break a 143.
Away from the Snooker table he also got married this year.
On Thursday 8th April 2010 I went to the Crucible Theatre to watch the first ever ‘Snooker Legends’. The players included Jimmy White and Alex ‘Hurricane’ Higgins who returned to the Crucible for the first time in over 15 years.
