I am a very glad Joe Perry won yesterday! Espicially well done given how well Mark Williams has been playing recently.
it is interesting when and how different players are going to masters the physics of the game. Now I could think that Matt Selt could well won a ranking title soon. Even if a player would lack something in terms of the tactics, the will of the win or so, they can still master the physics of the game when they are relatively young, and a vice versa. I remember when I was 24-27 years of old and playing quite a lot with a mate 4 years younger than me we were both playing a really, really well in terms of the physics of the game. I won most of the games, which were a very high quality, but the mate of mine played some totally incredibly good and solid clearences a lot. Playing a lot of with side, which looked really good of what sort of bounces he managed to get from the cushions. And still rock solid positioning, always! You don´t see that good staff even in professional snooker. And I wasn´t that much worse either. Mastering the physics of the game was just immense during that time, haven´t managed to play that well much since then. I remember that basically every splitting of the pack from the blue went perfectly right, for example. Those kind of things and form might happen when you are still a relatively young. It felt that it was endless summer during those years when I played with him.
