30. Willie Thorne
Brash, talented, insecure and very hard to dislike – no matter how hard he tried to make us not like him.
Willie Thorne’s bald head and lush moustache made him stand out more from the crowd than his game ever did, but he was no bad player all the same. A chronic addiction to gambling overshadowed his career and the rest of his personal life, but whatever about that, Thorne’s contribution to snooker, on and off the table, only strengthened his position as one of game’s most iconic figures.
