The six- time world snooker champion remains amongst the top 30 players and a member of the commentary team. Off the table, Steve has carved out a successful media career, owing in no small part to his ‘interesting’ persona. With a bone dry sense of humour, he relives the highs and lows of an interesting career.


Biography

Steve Davis is the man who missed the crucial black against Dennis Taylor in a snooker World Championship final. To be fair to Steve, he has won the odd match. Davis scored the first televised 147 maximum break; his exertions winning him the much coveted prize of a Lada Estate.

Steve won his first major trophy in 1980, starting a decade of unparalleled success. Six World Championships were the undoubted highlight of his reign at the top. His dominance was recognised with the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award. Steve has won a total of 71 major titles, none more surprising than the 1997 Masters victory, coming at a time when he was written off as past his prime.

Off the table, Steve has carved out a successful media career, owing in no small part to his ‘interesting’ persona. Steve has used his reputation to become a multi-talented sports pundit, radio presenter, commercials star, quiz show guest and published author. After dinner, Steve uses his bone dry sense of humour to relive the highs and lows of a varied career.

Aside from some notable success as a pool player, Steve has a keen interest in poker and chess. Steve has featured at televised poker tournaments and has even joined the online community. However, Steve claims that if he was to make a career from it, then he would probably be selling the Big Issue.
