Snooker - Steve Davis WHAT A LEGEND


I used to play a little.
Oct 24, 2003
Top effort from one of snooker's all time greatest's!

Mark King 9 - 10 Steve Davis

Epic... Steve the almost emotionless at many a time throughout the game has earned a cheeky £16k by winning through to the second round of the World Championship of snooker to face reigning world champion John Higgins.

Have to say, brilliant, two chaps battling it out from Essex. Mark, seeded, Steve not. Mark King was dancing about to X gonna give it to ya when he was introduced which produced a wry smile amongst many a cringe in the still very well aged snooker audience. To be fair walking out at 6-5 up against the wild card he probably felt like he would get over the line in a game he hadn't been losing at any point.

Steve, the master tactician that he is though put Mark under superb pressure and I have to say it was great seeing players and fans alike standing on their feet giving the King of snooker a standing ovation upon entry and upon exit. Brilliant. Such a contract to his close pal John Parrott who retired from the game after his defeat in qualifying for the event.

I really hope Barry Hearn can use the game's big names to promote the game and introduce some exciting events in the aftermath of snooker's greatest competition.

So glad I witnessed that and at 52yrs of age he was the oldest bloke to win a game in the world championships! Lovely stuff.

Anyone else watch this epic?
