Australia's Neil Robertson wins world snooker title

Recommended Posts

Well done> Stopped following it myself a few years back but good to hear that the "usual suspects" have competition.

 

Who was the first Aussie, just out of curiousity? Too lazy to Google it!


PIO members are like triangles. Most of us are (a)cute but there are also those who are down right obtuse. Treat us all as equilaterals and we won't fall out. :biggrin:

Robertson is only the second after Horace Lindrum.

Horace Lindrum (15 January 1912, Paddington, Sydney, New South Wales – 20 June 1974, Dee Why, Sydney) was an Australian professional snooker and carom billiards player. He was the great grandson of Australia's first billiards champion, the grandson of the great billiard coach, Frederick William Lindrum II, and nephew of Frederick William Lindrum III and Walter Lindrum. During his fifty-year career he was known affectionately as 'the Ace' in India, 'Tikoloshe' (meaning 'Witchdoctor') in Africa, 'Boy Wonder' in Australia and 'the Peter Pan of Snooker' in England.

Dominant display ????? what a :biglaugh: it was the worst final ever both players were crap & that is not just my opinon either.

so that means they had no competition? A little like Cameron & Clegg, No competition:biglaugh:
