Aristos Wins Ironing Board Challenge


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:

Extra credit to Aristos for another video recreating an epic foul from Mark Allen:

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.

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:

Honourable mentions to fine efforts from Szepesi-Nagy István, Corey Ringsell, Marcos Dayao, Michael Rhodes, Floyd Paterson, Andrew Owen, HSA Eleven and Kieran Poole, and thanks to the pros who set the examples – David Grace, Louis Heathcote, Soheil Vahedi and Chris Wakelin.
