How many of the other 10 can you name?
higgins x 2
(fucking bored today)
Was a bit surprised there'd only been 11 in total
for about a decade or something stupid, wasn't he?
same with the nugget.
I'd had it in mind that there had been a few more recently
Not right, just like saying his nickname.
My personal favourite is Nigel Bond- double-O-147. Highest break 140.
Two lads I worked with once hilariously added each other to a Wikipedia page of snooker player nicknames after playing a tetchy few frames after work, with mildly derogatory in-joke nicknames like 'the binman.' They were quickly removed but had obviously been copied by other sites in the meantime, and years later there are several corners of the internet where these two clowns with a high break of about 12 are still included in lists of 'famous snooker players.'
Shittest nickname? Got to be Anthony Hamilton's `The Robin Hood Of Snooker`. Contrary to popular legend he didn't go round nicking frames from the rich and giving them to the poor... he was simply from Nottingham.
as the Jester is that it rhymes with his home town. He's a miserable ghet really
But it's quite clear that if he was from, I dunno, Droitwich he would have a different nickname.
Love the bottom of that page:
MC Alan Hughes (much better than Rob fucking Walker) went through a very brief phase of calling Ronnie O'Sullivan `The Essex Exocet`?
`The Tooting Typhoon` did they? Probably because of James Wattana.
Course he was :D
they used to do that, right?
