Re: Snooker Greatest

for me their is only one player at the top of the pile..the golden nugget..not just for how good a player he was/is (6 world titles), ranking tournament wins in three different decades, but also for his brilliant hosting of televised tournament events and his ambassador role for the sport...a consumate professional

Re: Snooker Greatest

To be honest Mike who's the 'Greatest' is difficult to say as you can really only judge people by their peers at the time.

So if you don't mind I'll answer it slightly differently, that is the Greatest (in terms of excitement) player who hasn't won the world title, that is Jimmy White

Re: Snooker Greatest

Its Steve Davis for me too - always a pleasure to watch someone who gives their sport their all as Steve still does.

I find snooker a great TV sport - its relaxing to watch. I often wonder though how come the sport is dominated by UK players?

Re: Snooker Greatest

I'm going to quietly pretend the "is" part of the question means "was", and vote for hurricane as he was a true genius in his time against some great players.

Absolutely! The man was pure genius - although to be fair does "greatest" mean most likely to win a game, or something more about flair and entertainment? Maybe he didn't have the patience to win against some of the more clinical players....

Re: Snooker Greatest

i think it has to be down to personal interpretation..winning titles does not guarantee greatness...its being able to entertain

white is a classic, the peoples champion, but never won the big one
Moss is the same in F1
Best in football
Montgomerie in Golf
Henman in tennis...well maybe !!
