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.

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.
