Hendry's is better as he proved it more often when it mattered on the biggest stage.

ROS still has time to change that but not much time.

My comment was about Reardon, not Hendry. So your comment should have been "Reardon's is better as he proved it more often when it mattered on the biggest stage."

His other totals don't matter, anyway.

Of course they matter.

Ronnie and Hendry have similar totals of rankers, so called TC but Hendry edges the WC.

Reardon has a better record at the WC but does not stack up elsewhere

This is all true but, for me, the standard of player they were up against has to be taken into account. O'Sullivan's prime years coincided with the prime years of Williams, Higgins, Ebdon, Doherty, Lee, Dott, Stevens. Hendry, to me, just didn't face that kind of quality aside from Jimmy White and John Parrott. That, to me, is the difference between the two.

My thoughts exactly. :hatoff:

Also, Jimmy White was addicted to hard drugs. He was almost physically incapable of winning a World Championship final.
