According to this article 61 players earned over 50k last year. Which means 67 Tour Card holders earned less. Plenty of opportunities.

Be funny if Ronnie does get a Player's Union going. Reducing the number of Tour Cards will be his priority, I reckon.

Far too early in the season for Ronnie. Playing the Shanghai Masters next month, apparently.

Eurosport and quest both meant to be showing the snooker.
Neither are.

He had first chance in both these frames, looks likely to lose both.
Roll back 10 years he looked destined to be one of the greats
Never happened

For ages he was blaming his lack of form on 'a video game addiction'.

Did not see it, but he was 9-7 down against Ding yesterday and did not allow Ding to score in any of the last three frames.
