You can almost hear the crack of balls going into pockets! The Shanghai Masters Snooker Championship is coming soon, bringing the finest the discipline has to offer. It's an all-star roster of 25 players, including none other than reigning champion Ronnie "The Rocket" O'Sullivan topping the list, widely regarded as the greatest player the sport has ever seen, and regularly referred to by his peers as a genius. Up against him are the likes of Mark "Sat Nav" Selby, legendary for his ability to lay and escape snookers, Mark "The Welsh Wonder" Williams, the first left-handed player to win a Championship, and Ding "Chinese Sensation" Junhui, winner of the 2016 Shanghai Masters, and the most successful Asian player in snooker. Not to be missed by fans of the game, or flamboyant nicknames.
