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

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.

He's at it again... Ronnie knocked in a 147 in 6 minutes 38 seconds.... Ronnie O'Sullivan fired in a maximum 147 break as he produced an exhibition of breathtaking snooker in Lincoln. The Ro

@TheManc

See the scenes at the HK Open 9000 fans at a snooker match final and apparently that was the norm most days.

Fu to clinch a final slot by rattling in a maximum to win his semi v Higgins in the final frame is the stuff of legend in front of his home crowd.

ROS still winning though that's his first title this season. Northern Ireland Open next week.

Rocket just ages like a fine wine. Nearly 50 and still winning big tournaments. 

4th time winner of the Champions of Champions beating Trump 10-6. Trump for good measure got a max as well.

O'Sullivan's longevity is something but his consistency is just phenomenal. 

Should be considered as a world all-time great sportsman but Snooker will never capture worldwide audiences unfortunately.

From the sublime to the ridiculous. ROS whitewashed 6-0 by Ding!

It's Ronnie so anything could happen but from purring the previous match how can that form completely disappear in the space of 2 days?!! 🤔

I think he masks the results with his "I don't care about it" outbursts but I believe when he misses a few balls first couple of frames he literally just gives up.

I mean he has conceded even when still capable of getting back in a match so if he doesn't care anymore you have to question why carry on competing because he does let his massive following down when he is in that mood.

Flawed genius.

Would love a Lisowski/Ding final - 2 of my 4 fav players along with ROS/MJW.

Have a feeling Allen will beat Lisowski though. The latter is a choker - he's 4-3 up atm but will probably lose 6-5.

I think steve peters has basically got into ROS' mind and realised that the best way for ROS to get the best out of himself, is to try and make him step away from the pressure. Hence, ROS is always saying he doesn't feel pressure because he doesn't care.

@TheManc

Selby...although I've found him irritating and aloof in the past he did well to beat his mental demons by winning the British Open. 

The emotion clearly showed at the end.

ROS getting beat by a nobody in reality (Gould) just shows again his fluctuating form over the past 4/5 years.

Still believe if he practiced just a bit more he'd be close to winning any tournament with that miracle talent.

He's won two this season, just a shame they aren't ranking events. He'll have to do well to qualify for the next grand prix event which is top 16 for the season iirc. He's probably mid 20s on that atm.

Think Trump wins the tournament again. When on form, he's basically better than anyone not named ROS.

Mark Allen is really starting to cement himself as a top player, huh? 

Well it's from the sublime to the ridiculous with him. Ding should have smashed him to pieces but he came back from the dead and now so far ahead against Trump and still managed to nearly fuck it up. 

He's had a purple patch mate players hit that from time to time (Wish Martial fucking would Lol!) 

Can't see him being consistently good but could be proved wrong tbf.
