  • Thanks to Mr Hearns for putting an impossible task for prize of maximum. This is the biggest joy of the game but we see no more from the best. He is no longer interested at making a maximum break at this point. He goes for blue or pink directly, doesn't even try to go for a difficult black. He could easily make 5-6 more maximum at last three years if he was interested. What a shame!

  • One remark though on the break the commentators mention when Ronnie asked the referee about the prize for a max: It's not true (as one of the commentators claims), that at this point he hadn't potted a ball. As a matter of fact he stopped playing and asked the referee after having potted one red and one black.

  • Trump can't do this. He's a good Potter, in fact maybe the greatest Potter, but he can't do this type of snooker and just fly around and make it look piss like this. Laughing and joking like hes down in the pub asking what the prize. This confident Ronnie is dangerous and would wipe the Floor with any Trump and joke about it at the same time. He's the best at snooker and it's as simple as that.

  • Nobody else can do that. I was watching the first time he asked what the prize was before potting a ball and though 'what a twat' - he then went on to do it easily. This time he asked again early in the frame and could of made it easily, he chose the pink as a kind of protest at the low maximum break prize. Nobody else can do that or has ever done that.

  • I've been watching the snooker since 1980; indeed my earliest memories are watching Alex Higgins, Davis and the old classic players. The game alone is beautiful, but the players add the magic. For me, noone has added more than Ronnie. One of my major goals is to watch Ronnie at the Crucible. The game is lucky to have him.

    • Exactly!! Thankfully someone understands! 👍 .... Just imagine - being so good at the game that you have already made so many 147's that they have become almost commonplace to you; so much so that you can turn them down! Yeah - there are plenty of players that are so prolific that they can turn down a 147!!! 😊 Snooker will sooo regret the day he retires

  • There never was and there will never be anyone better. There might be players that eventually will win more titles than Ron but there will never be a better all around snooker player ever. He is just about perfect at the table and honestly he is such a pleasant player to watch even when he plays badly and loses. He has the best brain on shot selection perfect cue action perfect touch on little canons with other balls even the stance is so natural walking into the shots. I rather watch Ron losing than watch bald ass Judd winning with his crooked ass cue action. Judd has some special shots and cue power but I rather watch Ron hit half the power and see white travel just about as much as Judd’s that to me is more elegant and spectacular. Also the countless moments of greatness in the sport like maximums and best clearances from impossible positions left handed right handed. Some spectacular left handed shots most will miss with their right hand under pressure. Way to many moments will make this comment 10 page long to list. Bottom line nobody like Ronnie ever.

That's arrogance, not what ever Ronnie is doing. He can do whatever he wants, he doesn't even need to pot any damn balls if he doesn't want to, this commentary always makes me so angry, but I still come back to watch this break every once in a while.

  • It wasnt arrogance or show boating, it was a statement to the governing body of snooker, a 147 always carried a substantial bonus, juat because more are made shouldn't mean the bonus is £10,000 instead of £147,000 , I remember Stephen Henry winning the world championship one year, he won £250,000 first prize, £147,000 for the maximum and he also got the high break ..... juatshyof £450,000 he picked up, more players should protest the greed of the WPBSA !! Without the stars there is no Snooker, Ronnie has made several statements over the years regarding ridiculous prize money on offer for the hardest score in the game in the form of slightly less entertainment.

    • The 147 Maximum Break is the "perfect" score....15 reds (15x1) + 15 blacks (15 x 7) + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 Ronnie chose to substitute a pink for 6 making the break 146. In years past, major tourney sponsors would pay a significant sum like 147,000 pounds for a, in large part from Ronnie claiming so many, many have knocked down the size of the 147 prize. This was Ronnie's critique of that....

      pulltpullt13 天 前
    • The controversy is that he made 146 when he could have made a maximum 147. He deliberately did that as, apparently, the prize for making a 147 wasn't enough.

    John DebestJohn Debest15 天 前
    • @healthiswealth You give your opponent 155 points in fouls before a ball is potted. You make a break of 155, the black is re- spotted and you pot the black with the first shot so it counts as part of your break. Happens all the time!

      peter shukerpeter shuker14 天 前
    • @peter shuker I agree Judd is currently the best in the world and is playing fantastic snooker. He’s also playing shots that only he can play and is incredibly consistent. There is a difference though, Ronnie rarely needs to play insane positional shots because he’s so good at keeping the cue ball on a string. He does that whilst playing with one of the lowest average shot times on the tour.. in his 40s. It speaks volumes how fellow Pros on the tour talk about Ronnie too, they recognise his ability as second to none. Judd is up there with Ronnie but both on their day playing their best snooker, Ronnie wins imo.

      DictateTempoDictateTempo14 天 前
    • @Pedron ANton I think both are unbeatable on God mode unless they match each other at peak level. Maybe Ronnies world championship when he was coached by Ray Reardon is the best snooker I have seen. Judd's final against Higgins was up there too.

I’m pretty sure nobody else ever could play to that standard - beautiful

    DaveDave15 天 前
    • @Boutros Boutros Boutros Ghali Ronnie now has 15 Maximus, that would be awesome to witness, no doubt. In hindsight though I think it would be much cooler to say I was there when he shot a 146 for spite alone. Everyone knew if he wanted the 147 it would have been his. Now with that being said, the reduced prize money for 147 is much less now cause odds of getting one are much higher with the level of play today. Either player would need to take less prize money for placing or, and what I think to be the case is the organization takes out insurance on a player getting a maxi. Ins companies aren’t giving the same rates anymore. For instance, I bought a snow blower last fall, if it snowed 6” or more on Jan1 I’d get all the money I paid for it back. That’s not the retailer taking that bet, that is either investors or ins policy put in place to help sell more snow blowers in the month of October before people actually need them. Use that same logic with maxi’s, if it’s much more likely a player will get one than it’s much bigger gamble for the organization. And as much as the few players that can shoot a 147 and complain about it, they also don’t want less prize money at the end of the day.

    • @Boutros Boutros Boutros Ghali yeah that’s probably right, most people would have preferred a147 at the time. But playing perfect snooker isn’t the only thing that makes Ronnie so attractive. Fans love his imperfections too . Ronnie has done many bad things, he is a flawed human. He isn’t the typical super hero character, he’s more complex than that. He’s a bad boy, he’s rude, he’s sometimes nasty, crude, etc. But that is his draw and fans love it

      DaveDave12 天 前
    • @Dave And a maximum break is actually the very opposite of how a robot would play (easiest pots to secure the frame).

      Boutros Boutros Boutros GhaliBoutros Boutros Boutros Ghali12 天 前
    • @Dave No one is saying snooker doesn't need strong personalities, but we're talking about a specific break here - if you would have polled the audience after that game, I'm pretty a vast majory would have preferred to see a 147. Like most snooker fans, I think Ronnie is the GOAT, but that doesn't make him immune from criticism. Another thing that bothers me is how he frequently scolds less experienced referees for taking too long and other minor things.

  • What a coincidence. I just made a 145 clearance and turned on YT to see this. Amazing...

    • @maxone son there already Ronnie never dominated the game the way Judd is now, but that doesn't take away from Ronnie's legacy mate if not for Ronnie the game might've been dead already ..and btw I am not a huge fan of Ronnie me favorite player is Selby but I can not take away anything from Ronnie ..

    • It's just a matter of time before another genie out the bottle just like O'Sullivan. and it will be from China because they are coached day in day out just like Ronnie was from the age of 9 to 11 nearly every day

    • @Perry Wheeler yes there probably will be. But I don’t think there will be a character like this ever again. And whoever comes a long next won’t be a genius and an enigma

  • A wonderful break, I remember it did kick up a storm. In fact even the clapping stopped after potting the pink with the penultimate red. But at the end, I think everyone appreciated it.

    • @c0rse I like Ronnie's reply to that: if they knew they'll be seeing him making 146 live they'd buy a ticket (or something to that meaning).

    • I think a lot of audience members were just a bit upset that they didn't get to see a 147. Being able to witness one live is almost as rare as a snooker player actually making one.

  • The last blue and black were ridiculous. It's almost like the balls dont dare wiggle out. They would jump off the table if I hit it in at that pace
