Poor bugger.

Does anyone have a clue what his chances might be like? I have a feeling he'll pull through but it seems like the odds surely have to go down when you've had cancer in two different places.

He still needs to win the big one, which he's more than capable of, it would be a cruel designe...

Having recovered, he now has lung cancer.

Doesn't he also have Crohn's Disease? Some people are really just doomed. Did he grow up next to a nuclear plant?

Christ, the bottom third-or-so of that lot reads like the shagging list of a fat 34-year-old groupie biker chick from Rotherham.

Snookers finished for the day. So I've cured my boredom with a little potentials list.

World Championship Survivors since 1970
Qualification criteria, played in the main draw of a World Championship since challenge format ended. (1969 world championship - 2014 world championship) (People who don't have a wikipedia page, or there age can't be found by google excluded) Most of them won't be troubling the DL Commitee any time soon, but still interesting to note how snooker's first generation of real stars are still yet to get old and the majority of the generation before that are already dead. I'm sure this'll come in handy in 20 years time.

Rex Williams, 80
Ray Reardon, 81
Mark Wildman, 78
Perrie Mans, 73
Graham Miles, 72
Paddy Morgan, 71
Doug Mountjoy, 71
David Taylor, 70
John Virgo, 68
Jim Meadowcroft, 67
