I found this forum and decided to register! It looks nice...
I'm 16 and I follow snooker since 2002/03, when Williams, Hendry and O'Sullivan were on top. I'm from Portugal and I'm one of the admins of the no1 snooker website in my country: http://www.thesnookerplanet.com
This year, we've had the first ever national snooker championship and the first snooker club/academy in Portugal has opened, so it's good news for us!
I started playing snooker last summer and I've got a 91 break in practice and a 57 in a match. Unfortunately I can't practice as much as I would like, but I believe things will change soon...
Stephen Hendry is my hero.
