When Gary Wilson Produced Arguably The Worst Shot Ever At The World Snooker Championship

When Gary Wilson Produced Arguably The Worst Shot Ever At The World Snooker Championship

Gary Wilson pulled off a number of upsets on his impressive journey to last year's World Championship semi-finals in Sheffield, but he definitely wanted to forget this moment of madness in a hurry.

The 35-year-old, from Wallsend, recorded wins against Mark Selby and Ali Carter, and days later came up against world number four Judd Trump in a highly anticipated semi-final.

It was all round success at the famous Crucible Theatre for the world number 30 but I'm sure he wanted to erase all memory of this moment in the ninth game of the match.

At 49-33 down against Trump, Wilson confidently approached the red closest to the middle right pocket but when he tried to get too low on the cueball, he totally mishit it and ended up potting the white ball.

We all know a mate who's done this, but have you seen anything like it on the professional circuit?

Chinese player Cao Yupeng's audacious shot during the Scottish Open Final was another piece of play that got everyone talking.

Snooker legend Dennis Taylor said that in 60 years of playing Snooker, he had never seen a shot played like the one Yupeng played in the final and we have to agree.

Robertson, who lifted his first ranking title since 2016, came back from 8-4 down to win 9-8 in a brilliant end-to-end finale as both players produced genius on several occasions.

But Is this shot genius?

We just can't decide what the hell it is, but fair play to Cao Yupeng for trying it.

Yupeng held the cue by its tip, touching the cue ball ever so slightly to produce the strangest safety shot of all time.

But it wasn't enough for the Chinese player, who impressed throughout the tournament.

We can't wait for the snooker to kick off again on July 31st at the famous Crucible Theatre.
