In 1982 Patsy Fagan lost in the last 64 of the Professional Players Tournament to which new professional who was only in his second season as a pro? (clue: he is perhaps best known for his work with the BBC.)

Clive Everton?

Bingo. Everton beating Fagan was probably Clive's biggest win against a top player, although Fagan really went into decline from as early as '79 onwards, so I'm not sure if it was much of a result.

Over to Ck147. <ok>

Woohoo! Was reading about him a few weeks back and remembered he actually played snooker as well, but wasn't totally sure on the year. Neil Robertson question incoming...

How old was Robbo when he became the youngest player to make a century break in an Australian ranking event?

Ha! I discounted Clive because I thought he’d never beaten anyone of any repute as a pro’. I remember perusing his record on Cuetracker once & he’d only scraped a handful of match wins in his entire career.

Fair play to him for beating a former UK champion.

the question does say ranking event - when was the first ranking event in australia? After he became world champion, right?

I'll go with 29.

the world champs counted towards the ranking when they were in oz i think. in the seventies.

though i'd assume the setter means australian domestic rankings.

First clue: less than 29 and greater than 13
