Putting in the practice
Around the Academy:



I normally practice for between three and four hours a day, Monday to Friday. It'll be even more if there's a tournament coming up.

I don't practice alone. I think the best way to do it is to play frames against other professionals - after all, that's what it's like in a real match.

Snooker is my full-time job and I work very hard at it. After all, you only get out what you put in.

I used to go out drinking and partying a lot, but that started to affect my snooker so I put a stop to it.

Nowadays I'll just hibernate in my room or go for a meal after a match. After all you're not there to enjoy yourself, you're there to win.

I always get an early night and have a good meal the night before a match, but I'm not exactly a healthy eater.

I had a Burger King earlier on today and I'm just about to pop out for a KFC!
