Ronnie O’Sullivan is certainly the most naturally gifted cueist to ever grace a snooker table, and arguably the greatest player of all time.

In a career spanning more than two decades, the 39 year-old has won dozens of tournaments, including 27 ranking events – placing him joint third on the all-time list.

Five of those triumphs have come at the World Championship in Sheffield where he has reigned supreme at the sport’s theatre of dreams, The Crucible.

However, it has not always been plain sailing for the Rocket at the famous cauldron, which has entangled all the greats in its web of pressured occasions.

Since his debut in 1993, O’Sullivan has lost 18 times at the Crucible to 12 different players, with at least one loss coming in each of the five different rounds.

The question is, can you name the competitors who have claimed Ronnie’s scalp?
