I think I started to watch snooker around 1999 or 2000. It must be around that time because I remember the commentator saying Ronnie O’Sullivan despite being the most talented player out there had yet to win a world championship. I was in middle school then and liked to watch a lot of sports and snooker happened to be on my TV a lot at that time so I watched it.
As for my favourite player, it has to be Mark Williams. For some reasons, I always have a special affection for left handers so I paid attention to him when I first watched the game. I also like that when he would lose position, shake his head and the commentator said he must play safe but then he went on to pot the ball anyway. It made me smile every time. I am pretty laid back (lol) about results so I guess that’s why I could stick by Mark for so many years, even when he lost a lot and was not on TV much. I am not a fan of his work ethic sometimes though.
Having said that, I enjoy watching most players. And nowadays, I have more time than ever in my job so I just watch while I can whoever they are.

I always loved WIllo's play (before his wilderness years) and to see him rise again has been ace.
Where do you hail from?

Oh, thanks. You are very nice. I am a little frightened at posting on the main forum though. It will feel strange to spoil your original family.
