Hunter doesn't use a rest
OLD news now, but haven't had a chance to post this since Monday. I always thought Paul Hunter was a bit girlie as he used to sport flowing locks like this >

However now he looks rather more like this <


The 27 year-old Yorkshireman, expectant dad and three-times Masters champion is undergoing chemo for colon cancer. He produced a real corker of a comeback in the previous round to put himself in with a shout of the quarters. But Ding Junhui, a Chinese teenager, put him out.

Why I found this story so inpsirational is that Hunter still can't fully feel his hands or feet. He had to take off his shoes while playing to rub them to soothe the paraesthesiae and he was shaking throughout the match. Doing well even though you're playing snooker without any feeling in your hands, pretty fucking tough. Top lad. Ding himself has been a bit unlucky. Having put out the crowd favourite Jimmy White and ailing Hunter, this new face isn't endearing himself to anyone British.
