QUIZ! Snooker in the 2000s: Second Edition

There’s a small lull in activity this week in between the two big events in China.

Ronnie O’Sullivan earned a hefty £200,000 sum for capturing the Shanghai Masters invitational title at the weekend while next week sees the next ranking event of the campaign courtesy of the China Championship in Guangzhou.

The Indian Open was supposed to be contested in the interim but the serious recent flooding that occurred in the Kerala region forced the postponement of the tournament to later in the season – with it now scheduled to take place in late February and early March of 2019.

There is, in fact, a small bit of snooker action today and tomorrow with event five of the inaugural Challenge Tour series being hosted by the Cueball Snooker Club in Derby.

Once again, entry is at a disappointing low for the latest edition of the Challenge Tour, which comprises ten tournaments this term and a route onto the professional circuit for the top two in the Order of Merit standings.

Each Challenge Tour event is supposed to boast a maximum of 72 players in the field but none of the events so far have come close to reaching that number.

Anyway, the brief respite usually means one thing here on SnookerHQ and that’s a little quiz to keep you ticking over until the players return to our screens.

We’re revisiting the snooker by decade series and, after the second edition of the 2010s last month, let’s go a bit further back and return to the decade between 2000 and 2009.

The question is, how well do you know snooker in the 2000s?
