If and when 8-Ball Pool ever inaugurates a Hall of Fame one of the first inductees will surely be Mick Hill.
The Black Country cue star is one of the game's greatest ever players.
And he can confirm that tag by retaining his WEPF World 8-Ball men's singles title on July 5.
Hill is top seed for the £26,000 tournament that starts at Blackpool's Imperial Hotel on Friday.
Indeed, he's been busy raising profile since defeating another Hall of Fame certainty Gareth Potts in last year's final.
Hill has twice travelled to Australia
