I was there too
In fact after that tricky red with the left-handed deep screw between the pink and black, you can see my girlfriend and I in the crowd, both of us grinning inanely!
It was my birthday and I only decided to go that morning. I just woke up and knew that's what I wanted to do - go and watch the Ronnie/Ding show. So I called the box office assuming it would be sold out - but it wasn't, I got two all day tickets for £30, told them it was my birthday and they put us in really good seats. I cancelled the friends I'd invited over for lunch and jumped in the car. 2 hours 50 minuteslater and we arrived just as the MSI was coming to an end.
It was a pretty magical day all round really. We managed to find an incredible pub on trip advisor just outside Newport called The Bell Inn, where we consumed the fastest 3 course birthday dinner ever (we asked them to bring it all at once as we had to get back for the evning session - 33 minutes for homemade scotch egg, fillet steaks with triple cooked chips and pepper sauce, creme brulee with shortbread - yum) we got back to the Newport Centre with a minute to spare before the evening session.
Two sublime Ding centuries and then Ronnie's 147. I had a feeling about it after that first red. (ha! called it before you!)
You've seen 5! Well 3. what were the other two in competition? You are lucky man! You're like some kind of 147 good luck charm!
