What makes you so certain? In my book Trump is the slight favourite, about 55-45.


Dump your life savings on Ronnie tommorow. You can thank me later. <ok>

They need to bring back Alan Hughes. Or maybe employ Michael Buffer although he wouldn't come cheap.

I suspect Trump will test him, but Ronnie will still win.

How many times did it happen that two players, in the same season met each other three times in a final?

I know that O'Sullivan and Selby did last season but one match was just a PTC final. This time we have three proper tournaments.

Good question. If we don't count PTCs we might have to go back to the last millennium.
