One of eleven Triple Crown winners (as well as one of six multiple Triple Crown winners, that is, those who have won all these tournaments more than once). Member of the Snooker Hall of Fame since 2012. The holder of many records in snooker: in the total number of rating tournaments won (38), in the number of maximum breaks, century breaks, the total number of career prizes won and others. In 2015, he was awarded an Officer's Degree of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to his gaming career (the first in modern snooker and the fifth in the history of the game after Joe and Fred Davis, Steve Davis and Terry Griffiths). First player in snooker history to earn £9m, £10m, £11m and £12m consecutively and make over 1,000 century breaks in a career.
According to statistics, O'Sullivan is the most successful match player - on his account more than 75% of the wins of the total number of matches played, which is more than any other professional, with the exception of snooker players with little experience and who have not achieved at least relatively significant success in their career (O'Sullivan is ranked 10th overall, but the 8 players who are higher in this statistic have played only 1 tournament in their career, and one has played 2 tournaments, while Ronnie is approaching 350 tournaments played in his career) . The closest pursuer among the professionals of our time - John Higgins - has a figure of 69.27%, and the fifteen-time world champion of the past Joe Davis (the first world champion) - 73.68%.
