147 Drama
03 March 2014

I had been avidly following the scores of the snooker Welsh Open tournament, keeping a special eye out for my favourite player, Ronnie O'Sulilivan's, progress.  To my delight, he got into the final.  To my dismay, I saw I was going to be away in Inverness that day.  However, I realized, if I rushed home, I could just about catch the final moments of play.

I managed to get back in time to catch the last two frames.  Ronnie only needed one more to win and he got off to an excellent start.  About four pots into the game, I noticed he was playing all blacks.  I clutched the remote control harder and remarked to the room (because none of my family share my snooker passion): "He's going to go for a 147."

And go for it he did, making a record of 12 maximum breaks!  Instead of reading my ramblings, you'd do better to watch it here for yourself!  Needless to say, I am very excited and only wish I had witnessed it in person!
