You ought to be sorry. Selbo is the complete snooker player.
You seem like a big fan.
Well he will keep on winning the Crucible title IF other top-players keeps on splitting the reds to him. Now, see, how well Jimmy White played during that shoot-out; he just played the loose reds and never open up anything to his opponents. Well eventually he got beat by Ross Muir but it happens. But realistically that´s the only way to beat Selby in Sheffield.
I don´t know if Steve Davis was that much good with the straight lines and rock solid 90 clearences. He could had been as good as Mark these days is. Mark has certainly played it perfectly. There´s a huge fear-factor playing against Mark these days. And I mean these days. So certainly he truly deserves a pictorial tribute like this. Even he gets beat every now and then or even more often, but his game now is tailor-made to play in Sheffield. He can only get beat if his top-notch and form opponents leaves the pack while it is and only splits it when it really have to. And even then there is a huge maybe and if. Having an attention span of a jellyfish won´t much help if playing against him in Sheffield. They should make every frame to really count and not the split the reds to him, that´s the only way we could even possibly have a contest.
Selby is a Snookerfan of snooker. Always leaving everything to you to figure and to make decision. That´s freedom. That´s how well Snookerfan has runned things on here. Even when being critised every now and then. But seems people have started to realise how good stuff that´s actually is. That´s kind of a minimum requirement to raise your level.
