The Ronnie O’Sullivan v Judd Trump encounter is a much anticipated green baize dual for all snooker fanatics to look forward too, and is bound to fuel interest throughout the UK for what is going to be a ‘grudge’ match to remember for years to come. “The Snooker Eleven 30 series where the winner takes all” is the new format of fast Snooker, and will take place at The Cresset in Peterborough on Saturday 3rd September 2016.
The ‘new format’ of Snooker entices the audience to forget the silent gentlemanly atmosphere of the snooker halls; this is rock and roll Snooker all the way. Starring the World’s most popular player, Ronnie O’Sullivan settling scores with the young pretender Judd Trump. Ronnie O’Sullivan is the current 2016 Masters Champion, a title he won for the 6th time in January. Add to that his 5 world titles, 5 UK titles, most ever competitive centuries and the fastest ever 147 break and you have a player who many regard as the greatest ever to hold a snooker cue.
Judd Trump is the future; with his brand of “naughty snooker” he has proven he can stand toe to toe with the Rocket. At their last match-up; the 2015 Grand Prix Final, it was Judd Trump who triumphed 10-7. With major ranking events wins in China and Australia, as well as the 2012 UK Championship the ‘Ace in the Pack’ is ready and willing to settle this rivalry once and for all.
Ronnie O’Sullivan said, “I plan to play faster, more attacking snooker that could revolutionise the sport like T20 cricket. I’d like to see it as a new type of snooker, a bit like 20/20 cricket. I do believe everyone will love it and want more. It’s going to be a revamped format, one that will excite the spectators. The format won’t suit all the players, but the ones who do will love it. If it is successful, I can see TV loving it, and wanting to make it into a series of events just like 20/20 cricket. It’s no good to have just the odd event, it needs be regular for people to engage in it, and stay with it, and support it, which will help make it become established.”
Ronnie O’Sullivan added, “Guys like me and Judd have a duty to make snooker entertaining. Judd Trump wants to play me in a few challenge matches with a fresh take on the sport that should be good for the crowds. I do think we will be able to capture a different audience to the one that watches snooker now, which I think is important for the sport to grow. I’m happy to play!”
Lord Russell Baker, Managing Director of Amber Dew Events said “I’m very excited to be working with the Snooker Legends and promoting Ronnie O’Sullivan and Judd Trump Snooker Eleven 30 Series in Peterborough. This ‘grudge’ encounter is one of only 5 planned matches of this type in the UK this year, and I am sure the new format will bring renewed excitement into the game of Snooker.”
With John Virgo and Michaela Tabb on hand throughout the match providing frame by frame match commentary and match referee, it’s all shaping up to be the Snooker match of the century in East Anglia.
It’s WINNER TAKES ALL in a best of 11 frame match and it all ‘breaks off’ on Saturday 3rd September @ 7pm at The Cresset in Peterborough.
