2005 Masters Snooker


2005 Masters Snooker

The 2005 Rileys Club Masters took place between February 14 and February 20, 2005 at the Wembley Conference Centre.

Ronnie O'Sullivan won his second Masters title beating John Higgins who he also beat during O'Sullivans's other title win in 1995 10-3. Not since Steve Davis whitewashed Mike Hallett 9-0 in 1988 has there been such a runaway London final.

Davis in 2005 meanwhile beat defending champion Paul Hunter 6-5 before losing to Peter Ebdon in the quarter-finals. Another veteren, Jimmy White who had recently signed a madcap sponsorship deal with HP Sauce (which had sponsored the brown ball in the game) and renaming himself as 'James Brown' (but the new name was never mentioned by referees or commentators during the tournament), made it to the semi-finals again and played against O'Sullivan, but lost 1-6

After not having a sponsor the previous year. Riley's Club took it in for the 2005 championship. But the gray set from 2004 still remains to this day.
