Ronnie O'Sullivan Snooker World Championship 2012Ronnie O'Sullivan

'The Rocket'

5x Snooker World Champion

Ronald Antonio "Ronnie" O'Sullivan (born 5 December 1975 in Wordsley, West Midlands),is an English professional snooker player known for his rapid playing style and nicknamed "The Rocket".

Ronnie O'Sullivan has been World Champion on five occasions (2001,2004, 2008, 2012 & 2013), and is second on the all-time prize-money list, with career earnings of over £7 million, behind only Stephen Hendry.

Ronnie O'Sullivan has been the world's no. 1 player on five occasions, has won a total of 25 ranking titles, and is second, again behind Hendry, on the list of competitive century breaks. Ronnie O'Sullivan has compiled a record 11 maximum 147 breaks in professional competition.

Ronnie O'Sullivan achieved possibly the greatest feat of his career after taking six months off the game before successfully returning to defend his World Snooker Championship crown, putting in a brilliant performance to beat Barry Hawkins 18-12 in the 2013 final at the Crucible.

To this day O'Sullivan continues to surpass all barriers in his way and recently added another famous record to his belt, in a career chalk full of dizzying success. The record breaker made 101 in the first frame of his 6-1 quarter final victory against Marco Fu at The Masters, making Ronnie the snooker professional with the most century perfect breaks, eclipsing Steven Hendry's record. Hendry later joked that he wanted O'Sullivan to retire, to stop him from breaking his other record of seven World Snooker titles. Online sportsbooks have slashed odds on him achieving this feat, click here for more online betting odds, and see what the bookmakers think.
