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.
Welcome to my fifth Q&A with stars of the Snooker world.
Ricky Walden is the latest snooker star to be interviewed on ryan147.com. Currently ranked 20th in the world officially, Ricky has a great chance of breaking into the top 16 for the first chance in his career this season starting 12th on the one year list.
Ricky also goes into the Shanghai Masters, which begins on monday, as the number one seed after winning the event last season. Ricky beat 2 former world champions, and 2 other players inside the top 16 to reach the final against Ronnie O’Sullivan. Then Ricky caused probably the shcok of the season by beating Ronnie 10-8 in a thrilling final.
Ricky has also won 3 invitational tournaments in the last year, winning the 2008 Belgian Open, 2008 Sangsom Six Red Event and more recently the 2009 General Cup held in China.
