Ronnie's safety game over the last few years has been superb, but I can just see him getting frustrated in the latter stages after the umpteenth Selby generated scrappy frame will cause him to take some pot shots to give the title away.
If this goes 9-9 I'm turning the TV off before the inevitable happens.
Ronnie doesn't get frustrated after long safety play like he used to in the past for instance against Ebdon at the Worlds, and especially after Steve Peters came around.
Although it has to be said if most of the frames are scrappy and cagey, of course Selby has the advantage, hell, in that type of frame he has the advantage over anybody in the game atm, so I agree that just might prompt Ronnie into taking a silly pot and throwing the frame there.
For me though the match is 50/50, and as for the decider thing you mentioned... well if it happens I won't go as far as turning off the TV, but in a decider Ronnie's chances of winning are 25/30%.
