When you watch Selbys salty interview you'd think he did it throughout the whole match.
It was the agressive style of play in general which was the key to win this match. And thats a very legit strategy. Going for a few risky pots and shots changed the rhytm of the match and put Selby out of his comfort zone.
He overpowered and outscored Selby in the final session.
Great post. Too much has been made of, at most, a handful of hit and hope shots and this so-called kamikaze snooker Ronnie’s supposed to have played in those last three frames.
It wasn't kamikaze at all, it was normal snooker. It just happened to be normal snooker played to a very high level.
People are letting Selby’s whining afterwards cloud their judgement as to what actually happened.
