– We are aware of this incident. The WPBSA (World Professional Billiards & Snooker Federation) Disciplinary Committee has been notified, and a World Snooker Tour spokesperson informed the AP.
What fell six times world champion?
It started when David Gilbert missed the thirteenth game of the first round of the World Cup, mistaking the black straight “The Rocket” on point. In training such balls, 100 out of 100 is likely to disappoint. Here, however, the chest was clear, as if hitting the lions not from this side at all. An error in its implementation that was unheard of. O’Sullivan frowned and vented his anger with a lewd gesture toward the table.

But the situation in which the referee was absent had no effect on the outcome of the match. O’Sullivan won this match and the entire match 10:5.
Difficulty with the table?
It’s hard to say who or what O’Sullivan complained about, but the truth is, Crucible Tables didn’t get the best reviews this year.
“I had a bit of a hard time with the table,” O’Sullivan’s opponent in the next match, Mark Allen, who beat Scott Donaldson 10:6 in Crushable, said in a conversation with Eurosport.
– It wasn’t the best table I’ve ever played at. As the day progressed, things got worse. Together with Scott, we had to ask the referee if we had the same set of balls because it was a completely different game – said Northern Irish snooker.
– it was hard. Allen admitted that you can’t think of a nice snooker game when your balls bounce and you’re just wondering when that will happen.
O’Sullivan earned £30,000 for his promotion to the second round of the World Cup. The world champion will receive a check for $500,000.
The Englishman faces a fine for his obscene gesture. In 2008, he had to pay £2,750 for improper behavior on the occasion of the China Open. It also lost 700 rating points.
