Daniel Wells with a chance tomorrow in the PTC6 last 16 to become Unofficial World Champion.

At least this way Jimmy might finally achieve his dream !!!

yes, nice concept :redneck:

so next person to beat Bingham today is the new World Champion. I wonder if he'll feel the extra pressure of being the current one.

Yes, the unofficial world champion (Murphy) was in that, so if it counts, then Ding and Ronnie were the champions with Ronnie still unbeaten, but I prefer to think that it is too different from snooker so doesn;t count...
Looks like...
34) 29/10/10 - Thanawat Thirapaipongboon beat Marcus Campbel 4-3 (EPTC4 1st round)
35) 29/10/10 Judd Trump beat Thirapaipongboon 4-1 (EPTC4 2nd round)
36) 29/10/10 Shaun Murphy beat Judd Trump 4-0 (EPTC4 3rd round)
37) 31/10/10 Liu Chang beat Murphy 4-1 (EPTC 4th round)
38) 31/10/10 Joe Jogia beat Chang 4-2 (ETPC QF)
29) 31/10/10 Stephen Lee beat Jogia EPTC SF and Lee retained the unofficial World champs by being the first player since Andrew Higginson to retain the title a whole week before! Must be the pressure of being world champ! :bowdown: :D Well done Lee - well deserved after all smoothest cue action in the game ;)

thanks for doing this however as far as im concerned Murphy was the champion and got beat on a snooker table on TV by Ronnie so ill post my updated list reflecting this.

If you feel Lee is the world champion then feel free to keep a list going with him.

Eventually the paths will cross and there will be no doubt again who the World Champion is but for clarity and keeping a record of who is World Champion when its probably best to keep the lists going.

Infact id compare the current situation to boxing where there are now 2 versions of the World Championship with O'Sullivan and Lee both claiming to be World Champion. They will both face mandatory title defences soon though and eventually a title unification match will take place.

However i personally would class Ronnie as the World Champion at the moment and disregard Lees claims.

Ok on reflection i retract my belief that Ronnie should be the unofficial snooker world champion as he only beat Ding (who had beat the reigning champion Murphy in a non official snooker format) therefore Lee is the current champion. <ok>
