For buck sake. People give out when I'm acting the tit, people give out when I'm contributing something meaningful (and enjoying doing it).


You know I'm just winding you up. I'd actually be interested to read your opinions.

Spoiler alert. Are any of the frames from Mark Williams vs Stephen Lee?

With Think Pink and these lists, Pink Ball’s quietly becoming the forum VIP in these barren summer months.

This list will be a very valuable contribution. Unlike the "Top matches" list, that would take countless hours to watch, it's much more doable to go back and watch individual (exciting) frames.

What’s this about if I may ask?

75. 1996 World Championship first round, frame 11 of 13: Ronnie O’Sullivan 90-41 Alain Robidoux
Best known for Robidoux playing on, 53 down with 22 remaining, after getting snake hissed off at O'Sullivan's playing left-handed.

72. 2012 German Masters last 32, frame 6 of 9: Ronnie O’Sullivan 67 (67)-63 (63) Andrew Higginson
Higginson was 4-1 up on a woefully out of form O'Sullivan, who had been struggling for over a year. O'Sullivan stole the frame from 63-0 down, went on to win the match, the tournament, and the first of two consecutive world titles a few months later. Did Higginson leave the genie from the bottle here?

71. 2019 Masters semi-final, frame 7 of 9: Ding Junhui 122 (122)-0 Ronnie O’Sullivan
Probably the most outrageous missed 147 attempt of them all. Ding pulled off shot after shot, and even fluked a yellow on the way. Not quite to be, but what an effort.

69. 1998 World Championship second round, frame 7 of 16: Jimmy White 143 (143)-0 Darren Morgan
A resurgent Jimmy White, buoyed by his sensational 10-4 win over Hendry in round one, at his exhilarating best. The break that made us dare to dream again.

68. 2015 UK Championship last 32, frame 6 of 8: Thepchaiya Un-Nooh 140 (140)-7 Neil Robertson
The missed black that cost Un-Nooh almost €45,000

67. 2018 World Open final, frame 17 of 19: Mark Williams 71-45 David Gilbert
Gilbert looked destined to win his first ever title here, but missed a blue and left the gate open for Williams. He lost the frame, and the match. (From 4:15:25)

65. 2014 World Championship first round, frame 19 of 19: Michael Wasley 74-53 Ding Junhui
An incredible scrap for the final frame, but Michael Wasley would eventually claim what was one of the greatest shocks in Crucible history.

63. 2005 World Championship first round, frame 11 of 11: Mark Williams 147 (147)-0 Robert Milkins
Some of the shots Williams had to pull out to complete his only Crucible maximum typified the kind of player he is.
