THE PERFECT BREAK!

FOR THE 2010 MASTERS SNOOKER
Ronnie “The Rocket” O’Sullivan, world-record holder for the fastest ‘perfect break’ will be sponsored in January’s Masters Snooker by the UK’s biggest hotel chain, Premier Inn.
The defending champion is hoping to test out a new purple cue as part of the one-off sponsorship deal, which has been struck to celebrate Premier Inn’s own ‘perfect break’: since Summer 2009 over one million ‘Premier Offer’ room nights have been made available for just £29. Premier Inn’s perfect budget breaks include cut-price entry to top theme parks, sports facilities and beauty salons.
If O’Sullivan achieves a perfect break, Premier Inn has pledged to release 147 hotel rooms for free (terms and conditions apply), to the first 147 people to email email@example.com
