  1. lindrum was so good they had to change the rules!!!! a true legend

  2. WHAT??? You’re kidding! How come he plays LH so much then? I thought Ronnie was the only true ambidextrous genius.

  3. You want TOTAL mastery of three balls and a billiard cue?
    THIS is IT! There will never be anyone like him. Why? The game is nowhere near as popular these days (very sad as it really is a beautiful game as you can see). Also, no one has the time or patience to practise for hours on end (Lindrum practised at least 9 hours a day, even at his height) and last but not least, WHERE can you earn a living playing billiards? (Snooker is VERY different) We have witnessed the end of an era and a legend.

  4. Statistics that tell of his greatness? He made 711 competitive break of 1000, 29 over 2000, 17 over 3000 and holds the record for his break of 4,137. He once made a century break in 29 seconds and his fastest 1000 was made in 26 minutes. He made breaks of 3,737 and 3,752 in consecutive visits in 1944. Total genius.

  5. The greatest ever. To teflonde, the last 40 points of the break are made with nursery cannons, but it is a beautiful demonstration of the all round billiards game, which Lindrum played with perfect correctness and with just frightening skill. He makes everything look easy. This bloke is not only better than O’Sullivan or Hendry, he is (by analogy) better than Tiger Woods or just about any other sportsman or woman you care to name.

  6. To me, the finest ‘cueist’ there has ever been!

    Any chance of seeing his wonderful trick shots (which I know were recorded on film) and especially his ‘nursery cannons’ etc.

    Anyway, thanks for this great post (I learned a lot!)

    Cheers
