He can pull off a brillant break at anytime but the next frame he can miss the easiest sitter at a moment where you think, well he'll surely make a frame winning break from here.
I think, overall, if the 2004-2008 Ronnie had the mental strength of the Ronnie today, he would have been even more frightening and stronger than the Ronnie of today. And he surely would have never lost that match against Ebdon or Dott. However. Clear is. Ronnie still plays great snooker and is capable of beating anyone and winning anything and that's the most important think. Calling him peak Ronnie or not is secondary.
True, a mental stable Ronnie would have thrashed Ebdon that year, he led him 8-2 and had he had a clear mind he would have won something like 13-4 or 13-5... Dotty match could have been closer, but he changed the tip of his cue in that match about 20 times, really, it was that many.
As long as Ronnie is winning titles, I don't mind what form he's in, but also enjoyable when he plays well.
