The world’s no. 1 snooker player gets thrashed in Macao

Hong Kong’s Marco Fu defeated British snooker player Ronnie O’Sullivan on Wednesday in the 2023 Macau Snooker Masters quarterfinal.

Christmas at home was forfeited by O’Sullivan in favor of the extremely profitable invitational tournament, which began on December 25 at Wynn Palace’s Grand Theatre.

O’Sullivan loses out on the £150,000 (1.53 million patacas) winner’s check due to his early 6-2 loss, but he will still get appearance money exceeding £35,000, according to EuroSport.

Today is the sell-out 2023 Macau Snooker Masters final.

O’Sullivan angered the World Snooker Tour (WST), whose events he is contractually required to play in, earlier this year by supporting players who chose to participate in much more lucrative non-tour games.

These include of exhibition matches as well as the Macau Snooker Masters and Hong Kong Masters, which O’Sullivan won the previous year.

The 48-year-old, seven-time world champion remarked, “I get paid so much more for going to do [those] and it’s really hard for me to turn them down.” “I have to consider my family and all of those kinds of things.”

O’Sullivan has made threats to resign from the WST over its regulations.

The Shanghai Masters and Wuhan Open are part of the WST, in addition to a number of other mainland events, despite the absence of any Macao-based competitions.
