H2H shows that Selby even has problems against Jack. And the Ronnie in the pre Reardon era was a lot more agressive and purely relied on potting and scoring. And he did it obviously to a much higher level than Jack. The last three frames of the World semifinal last year is the way he played when he was at his peak.
H2H would be in far more favour of ROS if an old ROS can be competitive and still win and Selby's always struggled vs ROS apart from the Scottish Open when ROS is like 45, there'd be so many matches where ROS just outpots him through pure offensive, free-willing play including 90s ROS
if he can handle Higgins as he did up until 05 then he can handle Selby for sure, even more so, Higgins has more scoring power than Selby
