Aristos Pampouris has won our Ironing Board Challenge with his re-enactment of the moment an intruder entered the arena at the 2017 English Open.
We asked fans to recreate a moment from snooker history on their ironing board at home. Here’s the winning video, which was named the best by two of the three judges, Ken Doherty and Alan McManus:

However, there was some controversy in the voting as the third judge, Shaun Murphy, named a different video as his favourite: Dr Tony’s recreation of Mark Selby taking over six minutes over a shot at the 2019 Northern Ireland Open.
Hi @WeAreWST: here’s my #IroningBoardChallenge – a recreation of @markjesterselby ‘s QF shot against John Higgins in the 2019 NI Open!! Apologies to judges @kendoherty1997 , @Magician147 & @alan_mcmanus – I know it’s a bit long!! https://t.co/fXylAaY8qz via @YouTube

And in fact Doherty admitted that one would have scored higher had he tidied up his living room a bit. A great lesson in life for Dr Tony.
Aristos earns a trip to the Crucible for the 2021 Betfred World Championship.
In third place was James Inglis’ version of the Steve Davis winning black from the 1983 World Championship final:
