So, who's the best breakbuilder out of these guys? The above stats are pretty even and I guess the guys have different strengths.
Selby's the most all round breakbuilder. Good cue ball control, good pack splitting.
Ding is probably second best cue ball control on the tour. Doesn't have the power of the other guys when it comes to splitting the pack, but is a master at little cannons around the black and pink spots.
Robertson's cue ball control has improved immensely as we know, but still not quite to the level of Ding. But his mid-range potting is maybe the best around and he has a habit of making breaks look comfortable when with other players you'd think they'd lost position.
Shaun is probably the hardest to describe. When on song he's a beast at the top of the table and a relentless scorer. Lacks the finesse of the others but makes up for it with aggression. Poor at cannons but gret at all other aspects.
Judd is the best around at smashing everything into the open and making breaks easy for himself. When doing this he's great at the little stuns and screws, but is weaker when going up for blue/baulk colours. But there's no one better at recovering position by going in and out of baulk.
So: who do you think is the best of these 5 greats of the game?
