Most rankers out of all on the list, includes a Worlds. Has a Masters title, and has been World no1. Also has won every ranking final he's been in and has beaten Murphy,Ronnie, Trump, Dott and Ding in finals.

if we take achievments on paper out of the equation for a minute and focus on each player at their peak then id say you could hardly seperate any of them really.

You never know. Great player :hatoff: :hatoff: But he always seemed more a Masters specialist. Also, if you look Stevens and Lee who joined the tour around the same time as him started to struggle mid noughties, so what's to say the same would never happen to Hunter?

P.S. Which muppet voted for Selby rofl . I'm a big fan but it's obvious he hasn't won enough to be considered yet. Anotehr ranker and a major to be on par with Hunter's achievement and a little more to surpass Robbo.

If achievements are out of equation, why list them in the first post?

Completely possible, especially if you consider there isn't anyone in their age group who's anywhere the same class as them, so when the slighter older generation start to decline, they have free rein to dominate.

If Hunter had been around, He would surely be among the top player.
