Snooker legends Tony Drago (The Tornado) Appearing at the Crucible Snooker Club, cork

Charismatic Drago is one of snooker’s most popular players with a flamboyant personality and a remarkably fast, attacking style. He compiled a century break in just 210 seconds during the 1995 UK Championship and holds the record for the fastest frame – just three minutes – which he set at the 1988 International in Stoke against Danny Fowler.

He made his World Championship debut in 1986 and his first appearance at the Crucible two years later, when he defeated Alex Higgins and Dennis Taylor on his way through to the quarter-finals. Steve Davis was his opponent but, over the best-of-25-frames, he could win only four.

Drago reached the final of a world ranking tournament for the first time at the 1997 International Open in Aberdeen, beating John Parrott 5-3 in the quarter-finals and John Higgins 6-5 in the semis. The exertions of that match took their toll in the final, which Stephen Hendry won 9-1.
