Well,once I've never heard of Paul Hunter before,I cannot say his death affects me,but I know how much you strongly aprecciate snooker and how this is a sad moment for you,Scottlee.

He was very young,obviously with great opportunities ahead,but,in spite of his young age,he had the chance of doing what he liked and being recognized for that,which I think is one great achievement.

This is the first I have heard about this, and I am in shock.

Paul Hunter was, unquestionably, one of the world's very best players and one of the most exciting to watch. He was brilliant!

I knew about his cancer but I thought he was on the road to recovery.

I really feel for his wife and family, and for his close friend and fellow player, Matthew Stevens, who must be devastated.

RIP Paul.
