Watch: Ronnie O’Sullivan takes the pi** at English Open with a 147

There’s no doubting that Ronnie O’Sullivan is snooker’s main man and he was at his brilliant best at the English Open tournament earlier today…


Let’s face it, the sport of snooker is nothing these days without it’s charismatic superstar Ronnie O’Sullivan and when he talks everyone listens.

Earlier in the week he was complaining about the conditions at the English Open, amazingly saying that the venue at the K2 Leisure Centre in Crawley smelled of ‘urine’ and labelled it a ‘hellhole’.

Thankfully for World Snooker, The Rocket was doing his blasting on the table on Wednesday and he captured a 4-0 victory against Allan Taylor with a maximum 147 break.

In typical O’Sullivan fashion, he was laughing all the way as he potted a 15th perfect break in his glittering career. You can see the all-important final pots for yourself below thanks to the Eurosport UK Twitter account:

Unfortunately for Ronnie, he’s going to have to share the £17,000 prize with Thepchaiya Un-Nooh of Thailand who managed the feat on Tuesday as well.

Now that he’s into the third round O’Sullivan must be sniffing success in Crawley this weekend following today’s win.
