THE NINTH day of the Dafabet World Championship saw a number of special events held in memory of Paul Hunter.
A three-times Masters winner, Hunter died of cancer in 2006 at the age of 27 and was regarded as one of snooker’s most talented players to embrace the game.
Members from the Paul Hunter Foundation, the charity set up following Paul’s death to help disadvantaged youngsters to play and enjoy snooker, held a number of snooker challenges and competitions in the nearby Winter Gardens throughout the day (Sunday).
And inside the Crucible – officials, players and the crowd held a special minutes applause in tribute to the late star before the start of the afternoon session.
