I have just heard that Paul Hunter has died after losing his battle with cancer. He was aged just 27 years of age, and leaves behind his wife and young child.
I can't describe how saddened I am to hear of this awful news. For such a happy, talented man of no age at all to lose his life is a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. May God bless them, and may he allow Paul to rest in peace.

I came from Germany. This year a go to third times i go to the Paul Hunter Classics.
Its a fantastic event to honour of Paul.
The world have lost a Snookerplayer but the heaven have won a Worldchampion.
You was the best Paul.
Good bless your parents and the side of the family who loves you.
I was really shocked to hear that he had died when I turned the tv on this morn. my condolences go out to his wife, young child and family. I am not the greatest fan of snooker but often watched games when paul was playing. He was an extremely private man, and kept how serious his illness was to himself. I am deeply saddend by this great loss. Rest in peace Paul xxxxxxx
I am devastated to hear the shocking news this morning. What a tragedy, my heart goes out to his family. It was because of Paul Hunter my family turned into snooker watchers. We loved Paul very much, he was our favourite player, now we shall miss him so much. Paul is an unforgettable champion and we shall always love him. My heartfelt condolences to his family. I am very sad to hear this tragic news today!!

The Paul Hunter fund was offered a share of the following copyright method of coaching. The four appointed executers of the fund: Steve Davis, Willie Thorne, Dennis Taylor and John Parrott were duely informed officially by letter from World Snoker headquarters but without a single reply to the very generous offer, or a reason why?
Snooker © The Fine Art Method
Play Snooker with Poise, Elegance and Finesse.
A secret is wasted if not shared.
The Fine Art method has been offered to World Snooker almost unconditionally and would make the game financially self supporting and non reliant on Commercial sponsors.
The Author would prefer to forfeit the copyright to the WPBSA but such a concession could be abused without strict conditions.
The Fine Art has coaching DVDs to donate to players that wish to play, coach and teach the Fine Art method.
Any player, boy or girl adopting Teach/Coaching as an occupation or part time hobby would pay an annual fee to World Snooker. An annual fee from each town in GB would create income comparable to the long lost tobacco subsidy.
Advertising a new Entertaining snooker method by youngsters would rejuvenate the game from its doldrums and going the dead end way of billiards. Commanding a copyright will make Snooker Coaching the worlds only copyright SPORT.
