Five-time world champion Ronnie O'Sullivan was knocked out of the World Snooker Championship by amateur James Cahill at Sheffield's Crucible Theatre Tuesday in one of the biggest shocks in the tournament's history. The unranked debutant Cahill, who is the first amateur to play at the Crucible, beat O'Sullivan 10-8 to advance to the second round at the expense of the world No. 1 who has 36 ranking titles.Cahill, 23, lead 5-4 overnight but O'Sullivan, nicknamed "The Rocket," clawed his way back to stay in the hunt before missing a final pink in the 17th frame that allowed Cahill to take a 9-8 lead.Cahill will play Scotland's Stephen Maguire in the second round.
