Before his time I think...

That's the one. Needless to say, all previous answers were incorrect (I'm pretty sure the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas wasn't even built in 1977 :no: )

Over to ESH :clap:

Another UK Championship question:

In 2003, the City of York took advantage of the UK Championships to invite a former winner to turn on the Christmas lights. Unfortunately, during the countdown there was a critical power failure, meaning that the lights didn't come on after all.

Which hapless snooker superstar was left red-faced?

Jimmy White?

is the correct answer. Apparently, Parrott tried to fill the awkward silence with a few jokes until the lights came on a couple of minutes later. No doubt it felt like a couple of hours to the spectators.

Over to Alex.

Yikes, my last question was quite weak, I'm not sure I have anything good.

Ok, let's try this.

By my reckoning there has twice been a UK Championship winner who has captured the title without defeating any other UK champions along the way.

I need the name of just one of them AND the year.
