Choose one current professional snooker player. Give me his first and last name only. You can only have one.
I'm going to bed now. When I get up in about 8 hours' time, whoever has chosen the name with the highest scrabble score wins.

Who?

Martin Dziewialtowski.

He was a Scottish player around in the 90s.

Got to the Quarter-finals of the UK in the late 90s, when it was still a multi-session tournament, but got smashed by Matty Stevens.

Possibly not of 100% Sccottish descent...:chin:

Mohammed Shazi Khan

(Shazi Khan is a double barrelled surname, not a middle name.)

You will remember he was the world number 527 in 1994. :wave:

You'd think it has to be Chinese player, but the drawback there is that all their names are quite short. A good latin name however can go on for a very long time. If only Leo Fernandez was called Joaquin or something. Polish would be good, Hmm, how much does good ol' jack score?

Jack Lisowski, bah, just 30, not enough by half! Any other known polish-sounding or otherwise ski-type names of varied locations that are snooker players? I'm sure there was one, but I'd have to google :(

Martin Chuzzlewit.

He was an ageing pro when Joe Davis was first forming the snooker circuit, a former billiards pro who regularly defeated the likes of W G Grace and Geoff Capes.

Three current professional snooker players were named:
Stephen Hendry (25 points)
Zhao Xintong (31)
Alexander Ursenbacher (35)

So CK takes it. Well played, sir!

‘current’ <doh>

(though until Hendry wields a cue in anger, I’d dispute his inclusion TBH :chin:)

Here's a good one, well fun at least:

Trump famously shares his surname with a US president. However, he's not the first to have the same surname as a past US president.

There have been 6 other top 16 players who have had the same surname as an ex US president's surname, who are they?

Wilson x 2
