Ronnie made his first century when he was 10 years old. At 15 yr 98 days he became the youngest player ever to make a maximum in tournament play, during the English Amateur Championship (Southern Area) at Aldershot, Hants on 13 Mar 1991. Seven years later he made a maximum in just 5 min 20 seconds in the 1997 Embassy World Championship.
He has won 36 titles in all (from 50 finals), his most important being the 2001 Embassy World Championship and the 2004 Embassy World Championship. The 1993 UK win made him the youngest ever winner of a ranking event, at 17 yr 11 mn.

O'Sullivan is one of only five players to win both the World Championship and the UK Championship in the same year. Steve Davis, Stephen Hendry, John Parrott and John Higgins are the others.

In 1993 he won the WBSA Young Player of the Year award and the following year he was named Player of the Year.

He beat Ken Doherty in the final of the 1998 Benson & Hedges Irish Masters, but he was later stripped of the title after failing a drug test.

During the summer of 1992, Ronnie won 38 consecutive matches in qualifying competition. 
Famous for playing with his left hand. Claims to have made a century while practicing that way.
