Asian snooker is getting more popular and more importantly better quality-wise. They did have great players in the past, like Junhui and Fu. However, a new, possibly even better generation has started to emerge lately. When we’ve created our list, we’ve payed attention to the world rankings and achievements in the past. However, the potential is also important.

Without doubt Ronnie O’Sullivan is the most influential snooker player in the world, so you would do your best to keep him happy.

West Ham's Premier League stars Marko Arnautovic and Mark Noble, teamed up with six-time Betway UK Championship winner Steve Davis, to take on Hammers team-mates Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez and Robert Snodgrass, plus 1991 Champion John Parrott, in a CRAZY game of Crazy Snooker!
If you asked a snooker fan at your local club how Ronnie O'Sullivan was able to equal the joint-record of five ranking titles in a single season last year, they'd probably say it's because he's the greatest of all time, or possibly a genius.
