RONNIE - The Best Ever!!

RONNIE O'SULLIVAN and BARRY HAWKINS have produced a Final for the Ages! Ronnie triumphed 18-12, but only the Best Player We've Ever Seen could have resisted so well against an inspired Australian Goldfields Open Champion!

The other professionals now understand the level to which they must raise their game to produce incredibly entertaining Snooker that also wins matches.

NEIL ROBERTSON won 10,000 English Pounds & "The BETFAIR Golden Cue" for his break of 143, in the first round loss.

BARRY HAWKINS - Brilliant!!

Barry Hawkins, the 2012 Australian Goldfields Open Winner, has produced superb performances here in the Crucible Theatre, in Sheffield. Barry defeated World No. 1, Mark Selby, and then Ding Junhui in the Quarter-Final, both times as a "massive" underdog. After triumphing 17-14 against Ricky Walden in the Semi-Final, Barry has to face the defending Champion, Ronnie O'Sullivan, in the Final.

Ronnie had never trailed in any match this year, and lead 2-0, however, Barry produced his own high-class break-making skills and lead 3-2! Ronnie needed 2 successive centuries to lead 5-3 at the end of the afternoon session. Barry again "stormed" back to reach 7-7, after a break of 133, whereupon Ronnie produced 2 successive centuries again!

Barry was unlucky to lose a black ball game in the final frame of the evening and trails 7-10 overnight.
