After those I would put the 2001 Final.
I also had 2004,2008 and 2013 and probably 1999 ahead of this one but then I watched this match again and realized how well he played. Yes, his Allround game wasnt as good but it was devastating scoring and potting from start to finish against a strong Higgins. In rapid speed. His technique in 2001 was also different. Bridge hand a lot further away from the cue ball and he had more cue power because of that.
But its a tough call anyway. The matches you mentioned are the Top5 matches he played over 4 sessions no doubt.
