Monday 12th ~ Sunday 18th of October at The Marshal Arena, Milton Keynes

Stellar line-up we have for the Semi-Finals, between the four players we have an amazing 83 ranking event titles.

First up it's defending champion Mark Selby up against Neil Robertson, both with 18 ranking event titles each.

Then in the evening we have WN1 Judd Trump up against rival John Higgins, the latter who seems to be finding his best form.

Who shall book their place in the Final and be one match away from the Steve Davis trophy?

DRAW

Semi-Finals

Mark Selby v Neil Robertson Selby leads 19-14

Judd Trump v John Higgins Higgins leads 22-17

9 Worlds, 8 UKs, 7 Masters, 83 rankers between them.


Interesting to think that 4 Ronnies would equal

24 Worlds, 28 UKs, 28 Masters, and 148 rankers between them.

Interesting to you maybe.

Boring to me.

That’s far from interesting <laugh>

More interesting (and still not all that interesting) is that one Ronnie O’Sullivan isn’t that far off the four players’ cumulative Triple Crowns. Equal in Masters, one less UK, three fewer Worlds. And that’s compared to four of the best players there have ever been.

That was my first thought, too. But I found the gaps between Ronnie and the rest to be more compelling at the level of 4 Ronnies vs. 1...

This is a half-decent line-up; I can get on board with this <ok>

It's a great line-up no doubt.

I think the favourites will actually lose, I mean Selby and Trump. So we'll have a Robbo v Higgins final.

I’ve no issue with Trump. The other three can buck themselves.

Is it though? Selbo is like watching a child die, but that’s not to say that Higgins or Pythagoras are fun to watch. Oh God, they are not.
