O'SULLIVAN CRASHES OUT
Ronnie O'Sullivan suffered a stunning 9-6 defeat to qualifier Stuart Bingham in the first round of the 12bet.com UK Championship on Monday.
The three-time former world champion looked to be fending off Bingham's threat when he moved from the overnight score of 4-4 to a 6-4 lead with breaks of 62 and 77.
However, the 35-year-old, a day on from his birthday, then dropped five frames in a row to make his early exit.
Bingham did not even need to score heavily to take the frames, his highest break in the run being a modest 48 to O'Sullivan's paltry 24.
Erratic O'Sullivan tumbles out
apparently his "killer" dad (is he out on bail?) was on hand to witness this humiliation and ronnie had been potting for pop
news to warm the heart of any cynic
edit: thanks mikey and dal
i will go 100 to each to show that madridistas are generous
