64, i just tried to start off working my way down the current ranking list then players from the past.

mind froze a couple of times while i racked my brain, couple of the ones i didnt get i cant even remember the names pretty much so had no chance of the, couple of fairly obvious ones i missed though doh!!

theres tons of different snooker games and quizzes on that site to try.

52

I froze for 2 minutes trying to think of Barry Hawkins surname :redneck:

I also couldn't spell Quentin Hann or Kristjen Helgason even though I was trying to type their names in.

Most obvious ones I missed were Paul Hunter and Jamie Cope

With more thinking time I would've got another 8 at least. So that elevates me to 67

:dance:

26/30

And I wouldn't have got the last 4 with more time :redneck:

..and looking at the most recent list, all those who have entered since the quiz was set up were names I typed in that didn't count

How many can you name out of the 75?
I got a pretty poor 46, funny how your mind just goes blank...


You were the only person I beat. rofl 47... At least I didn't miss anybody too obvious, and I am glad I forgot about Quinten Hann because they didn't spell it properly, and that would've annoyed me. rofl

I got Zang Andha though. <ok>

Apparently. <laugh> I was quite surprised Patrick Wallace played. I only heard of him for the first time last month.

Helgason lost 10-3 or something to Lee

Had a smashing run as well did Wallace - 10-2 in the first round, 13-5 in the second round and 7-2 up in the quarters before losing 13-11
