London, 13th April 2006 - Player One Limited, leading global publisher of games and content for mobile phones, is delighted to announce that Ronnie O'Sullivan Snooker is set to go live across all five major UK network operators ahead of the World Snooker Championships. Already live on T-Mobile and Orange, Ronnie O'Sullivan Snooker will be launched on Vodafone on 13th April, O2 on 14th April and 3 on 27th April.

Ronnie O'Sullivan Snooker is the most cutting edge snooker game on the market, the true 3D environment makes it the most realistic snooker game ever on a mobile phone. You can play in full championship mode with up to 32 players or learn trick shots and snooker skills in Ronnie's Snooker Hall challenge mode.

Rocket Ronnie is hoping to repeat his World Championships success of 2001 and 2004 in Sheffield next week, having stamped his authority on world snooker last season - winning five of the ten major titles up for grabs. It was an exceptional campaign for O'Sullivan as he won three ranking titles in a season for the first time in his career and retained his world no.1 status.

Pete Russell, Managing Director for Player One, commented: "Ronnie O'Sullivan is the world's No.1 snooker player and we are proud to have him as part of our stable of first class sporting licences.

I'm sure that snooker fans young and old will love this game, and it's fantastic it's going to be available cross network"
