Imagine popping into your local Ladbrokes and having a £100 flutter on the snooker.
That’s what one Somerset man did, and the bet turned out to bag him 100K in winnings. He wishes to remain anonymous and we don’t blame him!
But he was made to sweat though over the weekend as many of the first round matches he bet on went to deciders, but, he came out the other side 100K richer on the 15 fold Acca!
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “This is the biggest snooker accumulator win we’ve ever seen placed on a BetStation. Predicting the wins of 15 games has sent our traders’ snooker loopy, but we can only applaud this gentleman’s belief.”

The World Open 2018
The World Open continues in China this week, the second ranking event of the season, and new professional Harvey Chandler won his first round match in Yushan, and plays the Warrior Kyren Wilson in the second round.
Chandler was runner-up at last week’s Charity Snooker event the Pink Ribbon to amateur Andrew Norman as the new professional seeks to make a positive winning start in the ranking series of events on the professional snooker calendar.
Ding Junhui is the World Open’s defending Champion from last season as the Chinese wonder kid Yan Bingtao, who made the final of the Northern Ireland Open last season, has cruised his way into the second round of the 64 man event beating Stuart Carrington from Grimsby 5 – 0.
The World Open runs until the Sunday 12th August.
