Nevertheless the 44-year-old five-time world champion says he is enjoying playing more despite admitting to not applying himself fully.

"This year I’ve done everything I shouldn’t in snooker," O’Sullivan told the 52 podcast.

"I didn’t practice, didn’t play in enough tournaments, but I look back and don’t regret one bit of it.

"Sometimes you’ve got to face what everybody thinks is the worst possible outcome to see if it’s really that bad.

Actually I’ve enjoyed this season more than I did the last one. Last year I won virtually every tournament I played in, but I’ve had more fun this year.

He added: "Happiness, I think is simplicity - when I realised it wasn’t in it for just winning or material items."
