Two former multiple world champions discuss snooker and life via the Instagram Live online platform.
Following the success of last week’s chat between the pair, Stephen Hendry and Ronnie O’Sullivan are set to host another Q&A on Thursday.
The duo first got together last Monday and spoke for about 50 minutes over a video call, answering questions and talking about past experiences within the game.
Hendry had previously recorded Instagram Live chats with other top professionals, like world number one Judd Trump and Australian Neil Robertson.
The Scot’s interaction with O’Sullivan obviously garnered the most attention, providing a fascinating and relaxed insight into the mindset of two of the game’s best ever players.
Hendry revealed a few days ago that they plan to get together again at 3pm on Thursday, which will coincide with the BBC Crucible Classics episode that is scheduled to show highlights of the epic world final between John Higgins and Trump from 2011.
Thankyou for all your positive comments on my Instagram live q&a with Ronnie last Monday,good news,we are planning to go live together on my Instagram page on Thursday 30th at 3pm while watching the BBC rerun of the 2011 Higgins v Trump final

The 2020 World Snooker Championship was of course supposed to be ongoing at the moment, but thankfully there been some other things to enjoy in the meantime.
In fact, it’s kind of surprising how many options there are available with Hendry’s regular Instagram updates and the daily BBC offerings on show in addition to the Snooker Vodcast that is aired on Eurosport.
The latter predominantly features presenter Andy Goldstein alongside players like O’Sullivan, Jimmy White, or Neal Foulds, with the focus again on discussing various past events, achievements, and general yarns from within the game.
If you don’t have access to Eurosport, the TV broadcaster has been uploading the recordings onto YouTube so there’s also full access available there too, and again some of the content is very enjoyable.
Everyone wishes that there was live snooker to watch but at least we are not fully starved during these unusually barren times.
