Ronnie O'Sullivan has given snooker fans and sports fans in general some amazing moments over his illustrious career.

The seven-time world champion has been part of some of the greatest games in snooker history, with his personality along with his outrageous ability on the table, leading to some box office incidents over the years.

Earlier today, he took on Belgian Luca Brecel in the World Snooker Championship quarterfinal and it's safe to say, after a sloppy start, the Rocket found his flow.

This break of 85 gave O'Sullivan a 6-2 lead heading into this evening's session and with this sort of lead for a player like Ronnie, it would seem a place in the semifinal is almost assured.

Ronnie O'Sullivan has now won an amazing 19 of his past 23 frames and with the seven-time champion is this sort of form, who could possibly bet against him winning his eighth.
