Still the best player in the world when he can play his A game. Hopefully he can start to show it in more tournaments again, specifically the WC.

@TheManc, 147 maximum and 6-0 whitewash. GOAT. 

Manc, what do you know about Snooker

5-5 now 😉

Bingham > Bingtao

Higgins > Gilbert

My predictions.

Bingtao > Bingham 

Gilbert > Higgins

Analysis...just got a mad feeling for Bingtao to go all the way. Higgins can't replicate that form shown against ROS. He's shot his bolt I reckon. Gilbert will be buzzing and could be a Denmark 1988!!!

The first of many for Yan, I think. 

Shame for Higgins. I like seeing the old guard do well. Wonder if he'll never have a better chance to win a major? Lost 4 major finals in a row now.

Yes me too when I was younger Mountjoy won a tournament at age 46 against Hendry  and I thought that was ancient but now you see Higgins and O'Sullivan competing so I think O'Sullivan is right whereas in 1988 a 46 year old Mountjoy won a tournament it was a shock now not so much so maybe the standard has dropped and these young guns just aren't consistent enough bar Trump.

PS Check this out Wilson creates history LMFAO!!! 

Gary Wilson made the third maximum break of his career.

"The Tyneside Terror made the 157 break in the second frame of his clash with Liam Highfield."

Another tournament surely for Trump here? No Robertson, Selby, O'Sullivan, Williams, Bingtao, Allen or Wilson (KO'd at qualifying). Higgins pulled out with Covid and Murphy/Maguire just got KO'd.

Left in the tournament as we approach the end of round 1 are;

Trump, Perry, Ding, Dale, O'Neil, Brown, Hawkins, Jones, Fergal O'Brien, Joyce, O'Connor, Ford, Carrington, Xungsu, Robbie Williams, Bingham, Yuelong, Heathcote, Lisowski, Saenghkahm, and Brecel. 

That's the worst line up I have ever seen!

Yes breezed the final but Hawkins the idiot should have put him to bed. Absolutely bottle job!

Ronnie was unreal tonight. Best i've seen him since the WC by far.

Heavy favourite for the final but let's see. 

True I thought Williams would have given him a match but like you say another level and still phenomenal how after this many years he can maintain these standards.

Genius banded about in sport too often but he is one.

5-3 down I've steamed onto Paddy Power and slapped some on Brown. O'Sullivan a flawed genius.🥺

Looks like you might be making some money then!

Decider now though!

Aaaaaaand Brown wins 9-8!

3rd final loss in a row this season for ROS. Lost 5 of his last 6 big finals.

Bittersweet for me.

Well done to Brown ROS should never have taken that blue last frame but was embarrassed about the fluke that he just went for it. 

ROS like United can't get over that last hurdle especially this year.

The Players championship starts tomorrow on ITV4. Top 16 from the 1 year ranking list. Draw;

Judd Trump (1) v Stuart Bingham (16)

Zhou Yuelong (8) v Barry Hawkins (9)

Jack Lisowski (5) v Martin Gould (12)

Ronnie O’Sullivan (4) v Ding Junhui (13)

—————————————-

Neil Robertson (3) v Lu Ning (14)

Kyren Wilson (6) v Ryan Day (11)

Jordan Brown (7) v John Higgins (10)

Mark Selby (2) v Mark Williams (15)

If ROS had won today, he'd have faced Jordan Brown in the first round of this lol.

So yesterday Ronnie beat Lisowski 6-1, with 98% pot success rate.

Today John Higgins beat Mark Selby 6-0 with points totals of 546 vs 7! 

Yes phenomenal from the "old timers" just fantastic these 2 are still turning it on in their twilight.

Got to be Ronnie's tournament this time around he can't lose another final ...surely?? 

Edit:  Annihilation by Higgins 10-3

ROS doesn't give a fuck in the finals it seems.
