Milosz Olborski i think is the tallest snooker referee,he is listed as a 200cm basketball player but i think he looks 6ft5 next to 5ft9 Barry Hawkins at 1:34:51 Click Here

Rob I found some good pics from his twitter, Ian with Ronnie and with 5ft10.5 Stephen Hendry Click Here Click Here and Martin Gould Click Here Gould is a bit taller than Higgins he is 5ft8 Click Here
If he would stand straight like Hendry he would be atleast 6ft3,but would he reach 6ft4?

These were the only pics of him next to snooker players and they all came from his twitter.

Editor Rob: he still seems at least 6ft 3 range, maybe over it with Stephen there.
lemur said on 15/Mar/17
Ian many years ago With 6ft1.5 Steve Davis he looked 6ft3.5 even if he was further to the camera Click Here
But then why he looks sometimes under 6ft3?he is only 50 years old if he lost any height it should not be more than a half an inch.
By the way here he is with 5ft7 Matthew Bellamy Click Here

Rob at 2:05:15 till 2:05:30 he helps 5ft9 Barry Hawkins with his necktie Click Here based on all the evidences what height would you give him?
Editor Rob: lemur, he could have shrank a bit...I wouldn't rule out 6ft 4 range in his 30's.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Mar/17
No easy to tell in that Robertson clip doe to being further back and then bending down but perhaps 6'3 range more likely. I doubt he is under 6'3 anyway, as he looks into very tall range standing.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Mar/17
That Jan referee I remember from a few years back, always thought he looked very tall standing there, Lurch like. I'd thought he was about 6'4, 6'5.5 seems a stretch. He might be around 6'4 legit.
lemur said on 14/Mar/17
Rob isn't it wierd that with Steve Davis he looks 6ft3.5 but with other snooker players he looks 6ft2.5 Click Here
And i doubt that Ricky Walden is 6ft3 Click Here
Editor Rob: I think his claim is probably the metric value, 197, 6ft 5 halfish...he never looked that tall any time he was a referee.
lemur said on 12/Mar/17
Rob how tall is Ian Verhaas next to 6ft0.5 Neil Robertson? at 50:35? Click Here
Editor Rob: Jan is taller, he might be a couple of inches, even when standing behind him there...

what is Jan Verhaas height though? Well, he claimed on twitter "6'4" or 1m97"

to be fair, I wouldn't trust the guy to put the ball in the right position if he can't convert from metric to feet 🙃 😉
Arch Stanton said on 1/Mar/17
Doubt Hendry is only 5'10 flat. You could argue 5'10.5-75 I think but not under that, probably about the same height as Clooney.
Editor Rob: Hendry in person is like 3 inches smaller than Steve Davis.
Ly said on 28/Feb/17
Snooker players page maybe?
Editor Rob: there was one, but only poor Shaun Murphy was on it....I have rectified it, and will add Hendry to the site as well.
SAK said on 27/Feb/17
So many 5'10ers thinking they are 6'0.

177cm/178cm for O'Sullivan.
anon said on 23/Jan/17
I wouldn't take too much notice to what Taylor says he once described Mark Selby as 6'2 or 3 when he only claims to be 6'0 himself, Wenbo, he doesn't look much different than Ronnie so he could be close to 5'10, Joe Perry who Ronnie beat in the Masters final looked same as Ronnie but Perry has no hair basically and Ronnie has a good Inch of hair so Perry could be a solid 5'10 guy.
Anon said on 15/Jan/17
Dennis Taylor just said Liang Wenbo is around the 6' mark. I find that hard to believe. What do you think, Rob? O'Sullivan looks about 5'10'' right enough.
Editor Rob: 6ft seems a bit of a stretch for him, he is probably closer to Ronnie's height than being six foot.
Tc said on 17/Dec/16
Saw him on the street day after his world champ win in Sheffield. Slight fella, no more than 178cm, has sticky up hair that gives him height. I'm 181cm and was taller.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Dec/16
There's something about Ronnie which screams "old school crook". I don't know what it is. He has that look and demeanour of a Great Train bank robber or something , the look and vibe of an early/mid 20th century criminal in Pentonville.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Dec/16
Yeah I got a good look at Ronnie on the snooker recently and I guessed him at 5 ft 10ish myself. Hendry does have the look of a 180 ish guy.
anon said on 6/Dec/16
Remember Ronnie saying on the Clare Balding show that he is 6ft, no chance of that around 5'10 is correct, He is a good couple of Inches shorter than Mark selby in the final just the other day and Selby looks a legit 6'0.

Yh, Walden is likely between 6' 3 and 6'4 he always slouches a bit when he shakes hands very tall guy, the 183cm listing is rubbish Have seen Hendry is listed as 186cm and Trump 174cm so its obvious they are not accurate at all.

Hendry cant be 6'1 he only looks a bit taller than Ronnie from what I can recall
Editor Rob: anon, I've seen Hendry and he is indeed a weak 5ft 11 range at best I think.
Roger said on 3/Dec/16
I can't see more than 1cm between Ronnie and Trump. I always thought Ronnie was a strong 5'11 but clearly from this photo he isn't. Trump can't be more than 179, weak 5'11 at the most.

Ricky Walden is the one I'm curious about, you don't really notice it until you get a clear shot of him standing next to other players and he looks HUGE. 6'4 at least. He's "officially" listed at 183 but that's obviously nonsense.
Editor Rob: Roger, I saw Walden described at 6ft 3 in a newspaper article, I think that range is believable for him.

Certainly wouldn't believe any fake news site saying he's 6ft flat!
Editor Rob said on 19/Nov/16
Found a quote by Ronny.

He claims to be 6ft!
Chris175 said on 18/Nov/16
Walked up to him back in 2006 and didn't feel like there was much difference in him and me, but he could have been slightly taller than me. Not a huge guy though. 5-10 seems correct
PhysicsEnemy said on 17/Oct/16
Arm-round-shoulder helps his posture whilst hampering Rob's. Could be a full 5' 10", but I think 5' 9.75".
Editor Rob: at worst 5ft 9.75, but I think close enough to 5ft 10.
anon said on 14/Jul/16
Trump must be minimum 5'11 at worst 179-180 and most maybe 182?

Ricky Walden looks like 6'4, very tall and his posture is awful
Peter 179cm said on 10/Jul/16
Looks a solid 177cm/5'9.75
Mark said on 7/Jul/16
According to Google Juss Trump is 1.74cm! laughbale!!
Johno said on 15/Feb/16
5'9.5
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 15/Jan/16
I just watched Judd Trump vs Neil Robertson at the Masters. What a fantastic match. Trump really is an amazing player to watch, just like Ronnie. Trump was visibly shorter than Robertson (listed at 6'0.5"/184cm here) when they shook hands, I think the delta was around 2 inches. So I'm sticking with my 5'10.5"/179cm estimate for Trump.
david said on 3/Oct/15
hi rob do you know how tall Stephen Hendry is.
[Editor Rob: the time I seen him I didn't think he looked that much over 5ft 10, but it wasn't 1 foot, a few feet further away so not the best comparison (being up close is better).]
Wabb said on 22/Jun/15
Recently claimed '6 foot' on Clare Balding show. Can't be right, Rob, surely?
[Editor Rob: zero chance, he's not over 5ft 10 really.]
Rory said on 3/May/15
Rob, ed miliband played a game of pool with Ronnie, i couldn't see the footwear but ed looked at least 3 inches taller, could he be 6'1 ?
[Editor Rob: he could clear 6ft yes...but did he have shoes and Ronnie a thinner sneaker? I didn't watch it...]
ray said on 13/Mar/15
I would have gussed 5'11 for Trump, 5'8 or 5'9 is too low, He looked Taller than O'sullivan in that masters final recently a good solid inch taller, I would say 5'11 range
Blink said on 17/Jan/15
Trump is taller than Ronnie but shorter than Selby, 5'11 range.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 13/Dec/14
After watching this season's UK Championship Final I estimate:
Ronnie O'Sullivan: 177cm.
Judd Trump: 179-180cm.
jonn said on 12/Nov/14
Trump Looked a good Inch taller than Ronnie O' Sullivan in the champion of the champions final in the photo before match, Not sure on footwear both in shoes, Trump has those spiky styled shoes, I assume Ronnie had normal heeled shoes.

I would probably guess Judd in that solid 5'11 area like 180 or 181cm, He could be very similar to Shaun Murphy I think
ray said on 31/Oct/14
Yh I would say Trump is similar height to Shaun Murphy maybe bit taller so maybe a weak 6'0 or something, I think he is at least 5;11 and possibly around 6'0 max, He Looks shorter than Robertson who looks 184cm max with Rob.

I have read people on here who reckon Judd is 5'9/ 5'10 that is too low for sure, Lowest I would go for Judd is 5'11
max said on 4/Aug/14
Judd Trump is about 6ft maybe 182cm, he is above 5'10.5, He is taller than O' sullivan
Bud said on 22/Mar/14
It has been a while since i saw Mark Williams in TV with snooker players who's height i know,but if i remember correct he looked around 6'1
176,2Tunman said on 12/Mar/14
Nice pics,Bud your listings seem honest although I would have said
Higgins 5'9 Judd Trump 5'10.5-10.75 Selby 6'(doesn't look to stand perfectly straight) Hendry 5'10.5 Murphy 5'11.25 Robertson 6'2 Hawkins 5'9.
Any opinion about Dominic Dale and Mark Williams?I would have thought Dale 5'11.5 and Williams 6'3 but I'm not sure at all.
Bud said on 27/Feb/14
One thing is sure Ronnie is 5'10,knowing that is is not too hard to figure out other snooker players height too: John Higgins 5'9 Click Here
Judd Trump 5'11.25 Click Here (Ronnie is closer to the cam) Mark Selby 5'11.5 Click Here Click Here Steven Hendry 5'11 Click Here Click Here (In TV he always looks a bit taller than Roney) Shaun Murphy 5'11.25 Click Here Neil Robertson 6'2 Click Here Click Here Barry Hawkins 5'9 Click Here Click Here

One of the few guys on here that looks a legit 5'10" in photo. To me, this is a textbook 2 inch difference.

Actually 'paul 182.4' i disagree, in my opinion i dont beliee 6 foot is 'tall' maybe because im 6ft1 i wouldnt say i was a 'tall' guy, or a 'big' guy, i would say im slightly above average, i wouldn't say 6 foot is 'tall' at all. If a 6ft3 guy stood next to me i wouldnt think he was 'tall' id say you have to be more than 2 inches above average to be considered 'tall' id say 3 inches ATLEAST even though im 6'1 i still wouldnt say im tall, for example i have a friend who is 6ft3 i would say he's tall because he's considered tall, yes.. But i wouldnt find him tall in my opinion im just above his eyebrows, i wouldnt consider him to be 'tall'. Average heights going up.. Im only 17 and im surrounded by guys 6ft and over. I think it would be safe to say 6ft5 is the new 'tall' as 6ft-6ft2 are becoming so common nowadays. And people dont notice it.. Some guys dont even know how tall '6 foot' actually is.. Measure with a ruler or measuring tape 183cm you'll be suprised its not as tall as you would expect.

Do you live on a basketball court?
ErMahGerd said on 18/Jul/13
5'10" is regarded as tall nowadays. The average American male is now said to be 5'8.5".
truth179cm said on 12/Jul/13
Average is weak 5ft11, weak 6ft1 is already tall.
Bryan said on 12/Jul/13
@Teej I kinda know where you're coming from

I'm weak 5'11 and when I walk next to my 6'1 friend he doesn't seem that tall as opposed to my 6'5 friend who does still tower alot of people but when you come across at least 20 girls that are 5'10+ I feel short :/ but then I go to a multi cultural festival, dance class, wrestling event and bam I feel above average!
wiltonstilts said on 10/Jul/13
Guy below me teej. I disagree with you so much your a fool. And ronnie looks closer to 5 11
gian92 said on 9/Jul/13
Teej where do you live ?? You are surrounded by Watusis ! Average height is 5'9 nt more ! 6'5 is very tall !

if you aline in upper eyebrow that's 5'10'' (1.78m)

solid 5'9.5'' Ronnie O'Sullivan
cole said on 30/Jun/13
I see a 4-5 cm difference in the pic, so he looks 177-178 cm. It could be that Rob thought he looked a good 178 outside the photo, when standing and talking together etc. In any case 5'10 flat is good.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 19/Jun/13
177cm. His hair makes him look taller than he really is. Hands down best snooker player in history, what a legend.
LG69 said on 17/Jun/13
@paul182.4, the average man in the U.S. is 69.3" according to the Department of Health and Human Services.
The Exorcist said on 16/Jun/13
I met Ronnie at a nightclub in 2002. Very nice and polite guy! I guessed him at 5'9".
truth178cm said on 14/Jun/13
He looks my height. About 5ft10
paul 182.4 said on 13/Jun/13
that's how a 5'10 guy look like, that's exactly how 2 inches taller look like, let's say rob is 5'10(like the average guy and ronnie is 6'0 2 inches taller - you clearly notice that a 6'0 guy can be considered the start of tall because a 2 inches difference is noticeable and comfortably enought to have a decent margin over the average guy height)
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jun/13
Stephen Hendry, 5'11.5" seems to make most sense from what I've seen.
Craig 177 said on 12/Jun/13
This is another Mike Tyson scenario. He looks more 179 cm here. But then again, he's applying the arm around the shoulder which makes Rob drop slightly.

When I saw Ronnie's name, I thought 179 cm. When I saw the picture, I still thought 179 cm. When I read the listing, I realised he's 178 cm... ;-)
Craig 177 said on 12/Jun/13
This is amazing!

The really funny thing is that Ronnie was asked at about age 10, how big he'd like to be (actually meaning as a snooker player). He replied: "Five ten". He actually grew to his ideal height! Imagine if he'd said 6' 10"...
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 11/Jun/13
In real life I pegged him pretty average but slightly below if anything..I thought about 176-177cm.
Saw him on A league of their own - sports game show and he was dwarfed by 6'4 Flintoff and barely taller than 5'8 James Corden. So bit suprised if he was 5ft 10+ but seeing him next to rob 5ft 10 is the MINIMUM he is! he actually looks 178-179cm here but that could be because of the hair lol
Reg said on 11/Jun/13
Solid 5'10. No more no less.
SAK said on 11/Jun/13
He has always appeared the typical average heighted guy. 5f10 make sense. And next to Rob he looks it.
jimmy said on 10/Jun/13
This guy is easily the best snooker player ever.I don't know if he had any footwear advantage ,but he looks 5'10" here.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Jun/13
Jan Verhaas is his name Click Here that's him in the centre. Always looks pretty towering in snooker games I've seen, especially as the player are frequently bending down and he's standing there looming above the players like a tower. Can't find his height online but I'd guess he was clear legit 6'4" guy minimum.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Jun/13
There is a snooker ref who looks like Lurch with grey hair and he really dwarfs Ronnie by about 6 inches. Don't know if you know his name Rob but I'd guess he was near 6 ft 4.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Jun/13
Spot on. I requested him a while back I think and Stephen Hendry who I think is strong 5'11"-6' range.
legit177cm said on 10/Jun/13
5'10 spot on
miko said on 10/Jun/13
Always thought he was a six footer! Clearly not then ha.
