Allen was appalling for sure and Selby hung in for a round but offered little.
Allen started playing when it was too late. He seems to have the wrong mentality for beating players he should beat. He has had quite a few Crucible defeats against much lesser players.
I was also disappointed in Brecel. Wilson didn't play well at all in that match and even though his safety was very good in the final frame Brecel had more than enough chances to convert that 7-5 lead.
Ding was also rubbish. There were quite a few contenders.
I cannot include the players like Li Hang, Georgiou, and Luo Honghao because you couldn't expect much from them.
