Almost 23 years have passed since the late Paul Hunter claimed the first of his three Masters titles at the Wembley Conference Centre and today we are excited to celebrate an iconic moment of our sport in the pilot episode of the new WPBSA Snooker Podcast.
Respected snooker journalist Michael McMullan is joined by Ireland’s Fergal O’Brien – runner-up to Hunter following an unforgettable final in London – as well as former world champion Shaun Murphy, who made his Masters debut earlier in the tournament.
The pilot episode marks the launch of all-new snooker podcast which will look back at memorable moments and periods from snooker’s potted history, together with those at the heart of the stories.
In the case of the 2001 Masters, this not only covers the granstand finish to the final – including the famous ‘Plan B’ – but also other talking points from the 2000/2001 season, which would end with Ronnie O’Sullivan claiming the first of his seven world titles so far, as he finally began to marry his talent to consistently lifting the biggest silverware in the sport.
The WPBSA Snooker Podcast is available now via Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and YouTube.
