World Snooker Championships 2009

One of my favorite events, The World Snooker Championships, starts today. Thirty-two men will be battling in marathon nerve-wracking sessions. One of the annual events for skill, pressure, intensity and drama. I just love watching it. No Asian has ever won. Only one non-brit has ever won, Cliff Thorburn of Canada.

Defending Champion and number one seed Ronnie O'Sullivan is the heavy favorite to win it all but he can be really hot and cold. There are alot of challengers.

There are three Asians in the field.

The two Chinese, Ding and Liang were drawn against each other in the first round. The Match will be on April 20. Liang's really cute! I'll cheer for him :)
