Fascinating one Davis v Hendry 1989 World Championship SF

Could see Hendry was almost ready and Davis' battle hardened experience the only difference.



Clash of styles and generations.

On the Davis v Thorne 85 UK final, people slag off the BBC coverage today.

But in this UK final at the very height of the snooker boom, 6 months on from the black ball final, in the second tournament on the circuit, the BBC didn't show the final session live!

Also check out the closing montage 'That's what friends are for'. Quite a cheesey number. As middle of the road as one of David Vine's sweaters.

Saw this interesting video about Nick Pearce back in the 1990's

Never heard of him myself even beat Ronnie O'Sullivan when he was ranked no3.

Short documentary on him.



Was still on the go in 2016 when he won the Paul Hunter Memorial tournament.

"Ronnie The Joy of Six" 2020 - Ronnie O'Sullivan in an interview with Colin Murray on Eurosport. All about his reflections and thought processes during each of his World title wins.

He seemed really open and relaxed in the interview. And gave a great insight how his mind works.
