First 100 break achievement

Congratulations to Vic Junior, Arthur Lin who conquered his first 100 snooker break on 29th Dec 2012 against Kathy Howden at Brunswick Club, no doubt influenced by 3yrs of great coaching by Bruce McPhee since Arthur was 11yrs old. Just the start of Arthur's bright snooker future.

WSIC - Chengdu

The World Snooker International Championship (WSIC) has as much money, and as many Ranking Points, as the UK Championship - making it the most expensive Tournament ever held in China, and on an equal status with the 2nd Most Important Ranking Event on the Calendar.

NEIL ROBERTSON has played brilliantly to defeat SHAUN MURPHY 9-5 in the Semi-Final, but was unlucky to lose 8-10 to JUDD TRUMP, the new WORLD NO.1, in a very high quality Final. This is only the 2nd Televised Final that Neil has ever lost in 12 Finals appearances. Neil has certainly shown that he is capable of winning in China, and will look forward to having even more success at next month's UK Championship.

Judd is only the 10th player to have ever held the World No.1 position, and he replaces Mark Selby. Trump and Selby are the only No.1s who have not been World Champion. Neil has risen to No.5 in the latest Rankings.

World Snooker have effectively created a Grand Slam of the World Championship, The Masters, the UK Championship, and now the World Snooker International Championship. Neil has won 2 of these, and has been a Semi-Finalist at the UK last year, and now the Runner-Up at the WSIC.
