Player of the Year: Judd Trump
Match of the Year: Ronnie O'Sullivan v Mark Selby World Championship semi
Frame of the Year: Probably the Kyren Wilson v Anthony McGill, World Championship semi although I didn’t see it live. Of the ones I saw, either the Ronnie-Selby final frame or UK final final frame
Shot of the Year: Ronnie’s opening red in frame 32 of the WC semi. The snooker escape was awesome but the red in frame 32 was sublime and got him to the decider in the first place. (Runner up: Guodong’s snooker by a tiny margin. Ronnie’s win’s only because of the occasion) the Dreamboat also pulled out several awesome shots in the WGP final
