Ronnie O'Sullivan is raising more eyebrows at the Welsh Open snooker.

He says he is "bored" at tournaments like it and would be just as happy playing exhibition matches.

It comes days after turning down a 147 break earlier in the week because the £10,000 prize was "too cheap".

That was deemed "disrespectful" by World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn.

O'Sullivan's in round four action this afternoon and did not hide his discontent.

"I've told my agent to smash out the exhibitions because I prefer playing them to tournaments. I suppose I'm just a born entertainer. As long as I've got a crowd, it doesn't matter if it's the Crucible or the local snooker club, I still get a kick out of it," he said.

"I get so bored at these tournaments. Maybe they should stick an adult creche here to keep us entertained because I just want to go home now. Don't get me wrong because I like Cardiff, but 17 days in Sheffield for the World Championship if you get to the final - I'm already dreading that."
