I legit thought Ronnie was 6'0!how camera angles can deceive! LOL. He's my height!
Griffith said on 14/Feb/23
Ronnie really believes he's 6ft ...Rob when you met ronnie in person did you ask him how tall he was 😂
Editor Rob
No, but 6ft seemed hard to imagine in person!

I remember seeing him in a bar in Liverpool in 2001. I am 185cm exactly and he was at least three inches shorter than me. I reckon 5'9 1/2 at best.

He is probably 5ft9 3/4"
OriginalAnon said on 26/Mar/20
He could be 5'9.5". However, I think he is probably 5'9.75". You have to take into consideration that he does not have the best posture and that will certainly affect him now as he's getting older.
howhiami said on 7/May/19
I walked past him about a week ago in Sheffield.He was here for the WSC. I was surprised that he is not taller than me. I was few yards away as he passed but there seemed no significant difference between us height wise.
tree said on 25/Mar/19
A few weeks later again with Robertson looked 5ft10 in the final.

tree said on 10/Mar/19
Looked 5ft10 with Robertson Click Here
Funny how he introduced the white ball so the 1000th century is 134 not 141 so Robertson got the 5000 pounds for highest break in the tournament.
Editor Rob
Yeah, to make 1000 100 breaks is hard. I can barely get by 20 any time I played snooker! He looked around 5ft 10 with Neil who is over 6ft.
Jeremiah Munoz said on 6/Feb/19
Rob, in these pictures you take with these celebs are you guys wearing any shoe/platform?
Also, when you are giving people their height on this website, is that their height in a no shoes/ platform?

Sorry, i'm new to the site!
Editor Rob
Everybody is wearing shoes, sneakers, heels...I've yet to see any celebrity in socks! Whenever I notice any footwear differences (well more than say a few mm) like 1/4, 1/2 etc I will note it on the page.

But heights are listed as if the person was barefoot. I'm 5ft 8 barefoot.
Miguel Calado said on 27/Jan/19
i have to admit, flat 5ft10 is possibly a bit generous. it's certainly his absolute max...
5ft9.75 is probably a better option.
World Citizen said on 15/Jan/19
Looks under 5'10"
tree said on 5/Nov/18
Jan Verhaas at 6ft4.5 looks accurate with 6ft Mark Selby Click Here

Rob you think i drew the line accurate for where the top of Selby's head should be?
Editor Rob
Roughly around that, possibly a couple mm higher.
Terry said on 13/Oct/18
Very strong 5'10. Maybe taller? 5'10 and half? Ronnie looks taller than Daniel Craig. However I do not believe Craig is a full 5'10 anyway.
Zampo said on 13/Sep/18
Flattish 5'10. 177.5-178 cm range. Think I'm edging towards the average guess.
Canson said on 12/Aug/18
@Bobby: that’s true. You wouldn’t see a difference between you and a solid 5’10 at a low unless you came below 5’9.75 that day by chance. 1/4” is not easy to spot even back to back. The shorter person could even have longer hair and appear taller as a result
Bobby said on 10/Aug/18
@Canson, I feel he'd be the same as me, like we wouldn't really be different in person. No one could tell we were apart.
Nik said on 24/Jul/18
Solid 5 ft 10!
Canson said on 11/Jul/18
@Christian: how tall do they try to tell you that you are once you call them out? Do they ever try to inflate you? Lol I ran into a lady the other day in the drug store that asked me how tall I was and I told her 6’4 (I was in casual shoes) and it was in the afternoon so I would come to around 6’5 in them give or take but not a full inch in shoe. She proceeded to tell me her husband was 6’4 and that I looked taller. To her credit she also said her husband is much heavier build and didn’t look as tall maybe because of my more slender and broad shouldered build. It’s also possible her husband wasn’t as tall as he claimed and she herself claimed 5’10” and looked it. I’ve noticed that a lot of women aren’t good at gauging height.

But then I’ve gotten other women, especially, who are clueless. One is a friend of the bartender I mentioned before who claims 6’4” or Conveniently 6’3.75. I’ve noticed a lot of fakes throw that 3/4” on the end. I went to a high school reunion once and one guy told me he was 6’3”, then said 6’2.75. He knew I had gotten him tho because he wasn’t 6’3” in shoes. He was also an athlete in school. And Some of them are an entire inch shorter than they claim but use the 3/4 to make themselves sound more convincing. I never picked up on that until the last few years but I’ve lost count now how often I see it. But back to the friend of the bartender, I’ve seen her brother before out and about with her and he’s 6’1 and claims 6’1” to her. I’ve never asked him but stood in front of him long enough to tell. She told me her brother is 6’1” as well. Yet she still maintains that the bartender is 6’4 and that me and my 6’5 friend are much taller than the Bartender. The funny part is that she’s seen my 6’3” friend who is 20 years older than we are and claims his actual height and even tried to say he was taller than he claims. And my 6’5” friend (strong 6’5 like you) knows them better than I do and even told her the same and she tells him he can’t be only 6’5. Ironically, he stood right in front of her brother when they met and she still couldn’t tell that there wasnt even a 4” difference between them (less because her brother had sneakers on like I did) and my buddy had loafers on. But standing in front of him I had Jordan’s and he had regular Sneaks so the difference was in my favor and I appeared just about as tall as my buddy did since he was in flats. I did hear my buddy say something about him being 6’5” and her brother’s friend said that’s what He thought he was which he would look in those shoes (around 6’5.75 or so) making him appear 6’5”ish barefoot. They didn’t ask my height.
Editor Rob
And as for Ronnie O'Sullivan's height...

around 5ft 10. When he was young he actually said he'd like to be 5ft 10, so I suppose he got his wish.
Canson said on 11/Jul/18
@Bobby: he’s likely taller than you but you wouldn’t see a difference if he’s something like 5’9.75-5’10. If Rob met him in person and pegged him 5’10 then he likely isn’t higher than that. Rob is more likely to give someone the benefit of the doubt than to lowball them. Look at Ray Fisher for example, he was listed 6’2.5 even after Rob met him and then when people said that the pic didn’t add up to that he was eventually reduced to 6’2.25 which he still doesn’t look. He can barely look 6’2” but the pic doesn’t tell the entire story as some people may be disadvantaged by a camera angle etc in pics
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Jul/18

What's just as bad or even worse than exaggerating about their height is that when they get called out, they make up all kinds of excuses. I've seen some people conveniently credit their claims to shoes, others inflate my height, and a few even use the fat excuse, which they inflate their height and then say they look shorter because they're fat. The only ones I can respect are those that they admit to inflating their height but do it because they wanna be seen as taller in public, like my 5'11.5" friend who claims 6'1" but admits he's 5'11.5" and wants to be seen as taller. Or to a lesser extent, my 6'3" coworker who claims 6'5" but he know's he's really 6'3" but does it because in his words "a lot of guys do it".
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 22/Jun/18

He doesn't look as tall as 5'10.5"
Bobby said on 20/Jun/18
It's funny how the average guess would peg this guy around my height but based on his eye level, I think that's low balling him, he's easily 5'10.5.
Jordan C said on 12/Jun/18
Looks 5'10.5" here.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 6/Jun/18
It almost seems a common practice for guys to inflate 2 inches. I can't count the number of times I've met guys who do it, even tall ones.
Paul NS (6ft 0.5) said on 6/Jun/18
@6ftMedium, that would require him to have a 3-inch forehead, which isn't likely. He is probably not below 5'9 3/4"
6ftMedium said on 4/Jun/18
More like 5'9 ¼"
PhysicsEnemy said on 11/May/18
Hand-on-shoulder trick plus upward hair makes him appear taller, he's 5' 9.5".
Yht said on 4/May/18
Seriously what's with those snooker players exaggerating their heights by at least 2 inches
They all have that in common I guess...
Faza said on 3/May/18
Taylor also said selby was 6ft2/6ft3 seems he adds 2-3 inches to everyone i think ryan day might be 6ft2 tbh
Anon1 said on 25/Apr/18
Rob, Dennis Taylor just said Ryan Day is 6'4'' or 6'5''. Surely not, he doesn't look that kind of height. This is the same bloke that said Selby is well over 6'. What do you think?
Editor Rob
I've not seen much of Day to tell.
Bobby said on 8/Apr/18
He looks like he'd similar to me at a weak to legit 5'10.
josh b said on 4/Apr/18
Just to say that's not Ricky Walden with Jan, that's Andrew Higginson.
Faza said on 16/Mar/18
Tree that is not ricky walden in the pic with jan there that is andrew higginson, walden is at least 6ft3 range imo
tree said on 15/Mar/18
Jan Verhaas is at most 6ft3.5,next to 5ft10.5 Stephen Hendry and 5ft10 Ronnie Click Here Click Here
With 6ft15 Steve Davis Click Here

And Ricky Walden is shorter than Jan Click Here
Marquis de Chard said on 20/Jan/18
I think Ronnie is probably a weak 5ft10 barefeet. His thin body type can be deceptive.

Other tall famous snooker players you can check up on & my estimates:

Ricky Walden (191 cm), Ryan Day (188 cm), David Grace (195 cm). The snooker referee Jan Verhaas is a beast – looks a weak 6ft6!
TheChosenOne said on 29/Dec/17
Gives me a 5'9.5-5'9.7ish height. His combed upward hair makes him seem a little taller than usual, so i'd say 5'9.5", his morning height's probably 5'10".
Bobby said on 29/Dec/17
Was just talking to Greg, and he says Ronnie and I would measure close, if not be the same height as one another since I fall to around 177cm flat at my low.
Tunman said on 28/Dec/17
Rob,don't you find it funny that on this site snooker players are on average taller than Soccer players?5'11.4 vs 5'10.8?You would expect the opposite thing.Of course the number of the former is quite small but still I would have expected them to be smaller anyways as snooker is a sport where height doesn't matter.But even more funny is that referees like Varhaas are even bigger than the players,quite strange.
Editor Rob
yeah that is surprising, will need to add graeme dott to lower it a bit...I think maybe since he won a world championship, he should get a page too.
Jordan87 said on 13/Dec/17
6 foot. Sure. Struggles with 5'10.
Tom Colton said on 8/Dec/17
Saw him outside crucible in Sheffield day after he won the snooker final. Taller than I expected. 5ft 10inch easy, was slim / skinny too & walks with a slight stoop.
Adam said on 3/Dec/17
Hey Rob, do you think Ronnie could be 177cm
Editor Rob
he can look it at times, but I think would measure close to 5ft 10 flat.
Adam said on 27/Oct/17
Rob,if someone is the exact height as you, can you sometimes think you are taller than that person when looking at them?
Editor Rob
it can depend on how you hold your head, some people naturally tilt their heads down a bit, others seem to hold better posture, some slouch most of the it's trying to account for things like that.

The closer someone is to your height, it certainly can be harder to tell if you are taller or not, sometimes another observer can look at you both and have a slightly better viewpoint...
lemonmelon said on 21/Aug/17
this seems spot on. 178 cm is the exact height which I cnsider to apply to people for whom height is not a descriptive factor at all. neither small or tall, just an average height man.
josh b said on 8/Jul/17

Great guy to meet, not 6ft though :P
Mickey said on 26/May/17
5ft10 seems spot on for the rocket
anon said on 3/May/17
Hendry 6ft1 not a chance he is likely between 5'10 and 5'11 he might be 5'10.5 179cm imo, No way is he over 6'0 he is not as tall as Mark Selby or Neil Robertson he is a bit taller than Ronnie
bongo said on 26/Apr/17
Hendry is 6ft 1
anon said on 22/Apr/17
Kyren Wilson Looks pretty tall probably similar to Mark Selby might be a 6 footer, Bingham is 5'10 maybe similar to Ronnie but he is a big built stocky guy, Think Trump is 5'11 range might be 181-182 imo.
lemur said on 17/Mar/17
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
lemur said on 15/Mar/17
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.
lemur said on 15/Mar/17
Rob I found a good pic from his twitter, Ian with Ronnie and with 5ft10.5 Stephen Hendry Click Here

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
lemur said on 14/Mar/17
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!!
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

teej says on 5/Jul/13
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".

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!

Teej where do you live ?? You are surrounded by Watusis ! Average height is 5'9 nt more ! 6'5 is very tall !
teej said on 5/Jul/13
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.

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.

177cm. His hair makes him look taller than he really is. Hands down best snooker player in history, what a legend.

@paul182.4, the average man in the U.S. is 69.3" according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

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)

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"...

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.

5'10 spot on
