    That's bizarre even for him.
    I'm sure the rumour mill will kick in soon with speculation regarding the reasons! Should make interesting reading!

    Its a strange one for sure. But having just endured my day I can fully sympathise with his "aww screw it" stance. I'm not saying its the right thing to do, but surely we've all had days were we just want to pack it all in, get home and forget about whatever we do 9-5.

    I'd say its a short term shame, but I fear, given his comments last year, that the most naturally gifted snooker player for a long, long time has in fact packed up completely. We'll see I guess.

    Ronnie's not the first to concide a match in this manner though.

    I believe Alex Higgins did a similar thing in the World Final about 1976 ?
    He was losing to Ray Reardon and just knew he was not going to win the match with quite a few frames to go.

    It would be a shame if Ronnie did retire . That 147 break he made at The Crucibal a few years back has to be the best snooker anyone could ever see.
