SPECIAL GUEST. JIMMY ( THE WHIRLWIND ) WHITE
On September the 10th 2016 MJK Sports Events are proud to present two of the world’s biggest snooker stars in Bradford in one of the biggest grudge matches ever!
Starring the world’s most popular player, Ronnie O’Sullivan settling scores with the young pretender Judd Trump.
Ronnie is the current 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 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 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.
It’s WINNER TAKES ALL in this best of 11 frame match and it all takes place on Saturday 10thSeptember @ 7pm at the Richard Dunn Sports Centre.
Forget the silent gentlemanly atmosphere of the snooker halls; this is rock and roll all the way.
Special guests for the night are the one and only John Virgo and Michaela Tabb.

Paul Wood pulled back 36 points against Damien Bentley, winning their opener 64-28, but this was cancelled out by Phil Gaunt taking his opening frame 76-29 against Bernard McLoughlin.
Bentley made up for the first-frame loss to win 71-48, while Undercliffe captain Gaunt brought the curtain down on the match with a final-frame 51-23 success.

THERE was high drama in the final of the Bradford Billiards Championship at Great Horton Conservative Club.
Trevor Kershaw won the title, beating Paul Devitt by one point after being saved by the bell.
The players traded 30 breaks in the first hour and, without ever finding their best form, play in general was very cautious in what became a low-scoring match.
Kershaw led 157-126 at the interval and did most of the scoring on the resumption, building up a lead of over 70 at one stage.
Yet for most of the session, Devitt was rarely more than a decent break behind and it came with less than 15 minutes to go when he made a 45 – the highest of the night – to get back to within 20 points.
Further chances for both players were scarce as the clock ran down and the tension mounted.
There were few risks taken, some unlucky misses and the odd fluke but, with less than two minutes to go, Devitt – still nine points in arrears – got another scoring opportunity and, having scored eight, he was left with a regulation red.
However, he hesitated momentarily on the shot, only for the bell to sound before he struck the cue ball, leaving his opponent, who had led for most of the game, with a single-point victory to become champion for the second time, having also won in 2008.
