1. Steve Davis's missed black in the 1985 world final
2. Stephen Hendry's missed black in the 1998 Master's final
3. Ronnie O'Sullivan's missed pink in the 2014 world final
4. Ken Doherty's missed black for a 147 in the Masters 2000
Oddly enough, I always think this one was blown a little out of proportion. It was a pretty lacklustre final, so it just stands out as being one of the 'oh!' moments. It was a shot he never should have missed, but in the context of the match, the writing was on the wall well before that missed pink. Selby was completely in the ascendency from the start of the 3rd session onwards.
The other 3 are certainly iconic though, no denying those, especially the first 2. Those aren't just pivotal moments in their respective matches, they're 'classic' moments in the history of the entire game.
