The talented lad from Essex is again storming his way through player after player in the the World Championship in Sheffield.
But I ask...." How long before he suffers yet another cruel defeat at the hands of a weaker opponent?"
Famous for his family background as much as his playing, Ronnie is the Gazza of the Snooker world.
The Chigwell boy scored the fastest ever 147 maximum clearance last year with ease in just 5 minutes 20 seconds. A feat considered unthinkable a few years back with snails like Cliff Thorburn and John Spencer.
He scored his first 100 break at the age of 10, when most children have not even yet held a cue or played on a proper table.
At 15 he scored his first maximum break in a tournament. A promising talent for the future.

With all of the success of winning the Irish masters and various other tournaments, ronnie is also pursued by controversy.
A couple of years ago, he decided to play against Alain Robidoux Left handed!
He figured beating him was so easy he could play the wrong way round. He still beat Robidoux and recieved a stern telling off for belittling his opponent who got very annoyed by it!
It just made Robidoux appear to the nation in his true colours. A bad loser.
Ronnies Family have connections with trouble for all the wrong reasons.
His father is in prison serving a lengthy term and this has at times be blamed for Ronnies mood swings and dip in form.
His weight seems to balloon up and down too which could also be linked to the pressures of tournaments and a grueling schedule.
In my eyes, he is one of the best young players around and my tip for the title this year.
