Losing matches and frames from straight forward positions is worrying. His good long potting days are gone. He makes simple pos errors even arguably having the best cue action out there
He's a champion whether you like it or not mate, nobody can be a Triple Crown winner if he isn't a true champion.
Everybody can lose matches from well in front, just ask Ronnie.
Yes but Ronnie has got a lot of titles in the bank

The competition was a real let-down given the line up. We only got a twiddle when we were promised a blowjob.

Some may not rate that one too highly, but it's still a Ranking event. I see that the format has changed this season. Last year it was first-to-4 all the way, including the final - but this time, the semi-finals are first-to-6 and the final is a cracking best-of-19. So, for me, it's certainly a noteworthy event.
It also boasts a whopping £100,000 winners cheque, so could be hugely significant in the battle for automatic crucible places!
