Who will win a ranking event first?

Postby SnookerFan

Yan Bingtao or Yuan Sijun?

Last season Bingtao looked impressive, and came within a whisker of being the youngest ever ranking event winner. The final against Mark Williams was very close, and many people were predicting big things. Since then he has done very little.

This season Yuan Sijun is the golden boy, and the one who has legitimately looked impressive. (Even if Hendry's praise was slightly OTT.) He has yet to get past a Quarter-Final, but has looked pretty good doing it and doesn't seem intimidated by the big names.

Who do you predict will win a ranking event first? Will Sijun's form continue, or will he fall away after initial promise like Bingtao did?

Any reason you think that?


Because he is Big


Does that make Stephen Lee the GOAT?

More like the BLOAT.

I think he's the most talented out of the young Chinese players. Even ROS agrees with me.


Yeah, Ronnie thinks everybody is a future World Champion.

Ronnie thought Maguire would be a 10x World Champion by now.

To be fair, Maguire was playing some great stuff in 2004-2005

:cow: is a bottler and Haotian is too ugly to win.
Xintong is the hottest Chinese prospect out there.

I think it was the bit about being too ugly. What? You don't fancy him?

He complains about too many numpties on the tour, yet in post match interviews every guy he plays is fantastic apparently. Even called Luke Simmonds 'a potential Top 16 player'.

Ronnie does a lot of things well, but talking sense isn't one of them.
