Wow.. That was stunning... Ronnie O'Sullivan went 3-0 down, then it went to 6-3 down, then managed to bring it back to 8-8 (best of 17, so winner needs 9). So, y'know, you've been behind most of the match, you're in the final frame, have to win it to get to the final, so what do you do?

Maximum 147 break. I mean seriously, why bother watching the final? As far as I'm concerned, that was the final. This from a man who the other day was talking about how his real love is running, and Snooker is just a job to him. If he actually liked the game, the sport would be far too boring because he'd never lose.

I mean seriously, a 147 break as an answer to a sudden death situation is just amazing.. And I think it might actually be the first ever 147 break I've properly seen, as it happened (as opposed to a feature on a highlights show), as part of the match.. And what better way to see one?

The man is a genius.. I watched him thrash Stephen Lee in the semi finals of the British Open back when I was in Brighton, and he was awesome then, and he's only got better.. And his presence in the sport just makes it all the more interesting...
