The Worlds would just be the icing on the cake :-D


I don't think the PTC is that great compared to the rest. Even the PHC.

You're right, but a win is a win nervertheless and you know there aren't that many seasons I think in his career when he has won so many events like this season, but I know what you mean.

Once he gets a few frames ahead it's game over. It's like he's sussed out how to win. What I mean is he's perfected the ability to win the early frames and then it's over for the opponent. All the other players need to find a way to break him down in the first five or six frames. I dunno how they do this but they need to work out a way before Sheffield!

Well his then record breaking 11th max was in a PTC...

PS World final decider would would be a better place.


That's nonsense obviously - there's no player that can push Ronnie so hard to force a decider :-D

Was kind of strange after he potted that left handed red down the cushion I just felt in awe that he was going to make a 147 there didn't seem to be any doubt about it the way everything was cruising into the pockets, it was actually enjoyable. That last black was so standard and Ron was so much in the zone I reckon he could have been blindfolded, turned his cue around and still potted it no problem, it just wasn't in doubt. What a feeling that must have been for him and what a great snooker moment.

Ding :hatoff: made a great speech as well as Ron.

Wonder what the odds are on Ronnie retiring before the WC ... :evilgrin:

Well I ain't been on here a while.

But after that, I need to comment. Having the pleasure to see Ronnie live at the Crucible last year, he is by far the best player I've seen live by a mile. That day he was bloody good, but the past week he has just been on another level.

Winning a tournament on a 147 is the stuff of dreams, that last red is one of the best shots I've ever seen. Jaw dropping stuff, all I could say was "My dear god, stop it just stop it"

Playing this kind of Snooker he is basically untouchable. Can't see anybody beating him at the Crucible, unless he plays poorly in the first couple of rounds, and an inspired performance by somebody knocks him out. If not he will easily lift that trophy for a third year running.

The 2 best players of the season started this final. Ronnie proved today that he's without a shadow of a doubt, the best player in the World and that by some distance.

Destroying Mark Selby and Ding Junhui in consecutive major finals is unbelievable.
