Snooker: O'Sullivan Storms to Masters Victory

Ronnie O'Sullivan put in a vintage display of cuemanship to defeat Ding Junhui 10-3 to take the Masters Title for the third time.

It could have been completely different though as Ding took the first 2 frames in emphatic fashion. The quality of the snooker never dipped but Ronnie just found another gear to leave Ding in his seat for most of the match.

O'Sullivan almost added insult to injury as he was close to making a maximum 147 break which would have meant a split of the £35,000 that Ding had already wrapped up. However one shot out of position meant Ronnie had to settle for a 145.

It was also nice to see Ronnie praising Ding's game at the end of the match and I agree he will be a multiple World Champion.
