English professional snooker player Steve Davis (born 22 August 1957 in Plumstead, London) was a guest on the Slavi’s Show.
Davis has won more professional titles in the sport than any other player, including six World Championships during the 1980s, when he was the world number one for seven years and became the sport’s first millionaire. He has won 28 ranking events in total, second only to Stephen Hendry.

Davis’ achievements also include three Masters and a record six UK Championship titles. In 1988 he became the first player to complete snooker’s Triple Crown in a single season. He is also a former four-time World Doubles champion with Tony Meo and won the World Team Classic/World Cup four times with England. In 1982, he became the first player to compile an official televised maximum break and is one of five players to have compiled over 300 competitive century breaks. Though he has not won a major tournament since 1997, he continues to play snooker at a high level and reached the quarter-finals at the 2010 World Championship. He was still ranked in the world’s top 16 at the age of 50, and is ranked number 52 after the 2013 Bulgarian Open.
