WORLD FINAL WILL BE BETWEEN....

Postby Witz78

The following analysis of world finalists this century helps to establish the probabilities of this years finalists.

2000 WILLIAMS STEVENS 1st time finalist
2001 RONNIE HIGGINS 1st time finalist no repeat finalist
2002 EBDON HENDRY no repeat finalist
2003 WILLIAMSDOHERTY no repeat finalist
2004 RONNIE DOTT 1st time finalist no repeat finalist
2005 MURPHY STEVENS 1st time finalist no repeat finalist
2006 DOTT EBDON no repeat finalist
2007 HIGGINS SELBY 1st time finalist no repeat finalist
2008 RONNIE CARTER 1st time finalist no repeat finalist
2009 HIGGINS MURPHY no repeat finalist
2010 ROBBO DOTT 1st time finalist no repeat finalist
2011 HIGGINS TRUMP 1st time finalist no repeat finalist


Firstly in this century weve had no-one making the final in successive years, let alone winning it, so by that process of elimination the following players can be ommited from the equation.

Higgins, Trump

The recurring trend in the 21st century seems to be 2 successive first time finalists then a year (or 2) with previous finalists contesting the final.

Therefore that rules out the following players

Maguire, Allen, Ding, Lee, Gould, Bingham

So at the moment, without carrying out any further analysis, i have ascertained that assuming the trends of the 21st century continues then the 2012 World Final will be....

Dott OR Murphy / Carter
VERSUS
Williams / Ronnie / Robbo OR Stevens / Selby


So looking at this i have to say a Murphy v Selby final appears most likely IMO.

You heard it first here <ok>

Rules are made to be broken, and the second connection seems tenous at best. Although, your prediction of a Murphy Selby final wouldn't be too bad for me :-D

It would be hell for me. :sad:


You don't like Murphy either? I'm not sure how you can get less 'snooker' than Murphy. Or is it for a different reason?

There's something about Murphy I don't like. He seems very smug.

Murphy done himself with the snooker fraternity when he complained about Maguire not having his chalk and then a docked frame.

Other than that he can look smug,Still a great player mind you.
