He always mentions that Jimmy never won the World title and use him as a negative example for players like Trump and Ding and warns them that they need to be careful to not "end up like Jimmy".
He’s right though.
Jimmy White is the ultimate cautionary tale for talented players who ‘should’ become world champion.
Yeah, I'd agree with that.
You kind of wonder if Jimmy would've won a World title if he'd have gone easier on the white stuff or the booze.
His choice to make though. Maybe a warning about prioritising practice over other stuff in life.
I don't think Jimmy would've done it any different if he did it a second time around.
