Gonna be devastated if ROS loses another final and this isn't a small final like Home Nations, it's big, he's gonna have to improve more if he's gonna stand a chance vs Robertson who destroyed Selby

Ronnie is winning a lot of these matches with his B game. I want to see prime Ronnie turn up tomorrow.
His most unbiased fan in the game thinks that recovery will have lit up Ronnie. I hope he is right. B game indeed for most of this.

I will watch that match saving clearance from tonight again and again though.

O'Sullivan is Houdini.


Would be tough to lose yet another final but it's good to see Selby get utterly ravaged and destroyed by the Aussie.

You can tell I'm a big Selby fan.

I can only hope Ronnie turns it on in the final, and yeh he's the sort of player who can come out when in OK form and produce a masterclass.

But I'm not feeling it. Pessimistic as ever.

Robertson to pound on O'Sullivan.

LOL Come on, Ronnie.

I know he has always been high on Robbo. ''Best cue action in the history of the game, yeah.''

Can remember back when Ronnie did win one of his world titles and said the winner would have to go through Robertson because he was playing so well. Ronnie ended up going through him.

Robertson's break building leads them to talk about the first world championship at the crucible. We've come a long way. The first crucible in 1977, the field combined to make 6 century breaks in the championship.

''They don't belong on TV.''

Looked absolute PLUM all the way just before it creeps up on the pocket and then scares me. But it goes in.

Scappy opener.

Robbo break building masterclass in frame 2.

Ronnie with the same in frame 3. The split didn't exactly go to plan but the black did end up in the middle. It looked like Hawkins highest break prize was under threat. ''Stop robbing me, damn it.''

Robbo's form is really really strong. Ronnie needs his A game.

With that sort of afro hairdo, Robbo is ready to dominate this sport.

Total clearance of 133... 3-2 to Robertson.


EZ Katka.

Why go for that black? You knew he was going to miss it. I knew he was going to miss it.

Now Robbo is in with a fairly decent table if he can just navigate the first couple of shots.

Quickfire break from Ronnie to reduce the arrears to 3-4.

"This is kill or be killed snooker, isn't it? It really is terrific stuff."

That final left hook which sent Povetkin packing was a sick shot though.

Not a scratch on the earth-shattering uppercut which ended Whyte in the first fight, however.

That steal filled me with the joys of spring.

I have not seen the boxing match yet. Going to have a look soon.

That took me back to their Shanghai masters match. Robbo with many big leads and Ronnie stealing.

I'm very excited. Ronnie actually looking sharp in the first session of a final.

I can't lie. Looking forward to hearing a phone going off during the action again at the crucible.

GET INNNNNNN.

I forgot in the euphoria of F1 today. OK back to the snooker.

WHat is this?

Why is Robbo at the table?


Why isn't Ronnie potting every single ball and shutting out his opponent?

I have a bad feeling about this. :eek:

Damn red and that whole break should have been Ronnie's. He trapped Robertson, according to the commentators. Got his reward with the left on red but he misses. Then Robertson does his thing.

This could be over in a flash.

Come on give us 10-9 to remind me why snooker is the best sport on this planet.

Ronnie needs a gift from Robbo or the match is over here and now. Or some bad luck from an attempt to bring more reds into play.

There's just been an inevitablity to the recent finals Ronnie has been in.

I've watched almost his whole career... you get a feel for these things.

It's just not his moment.

They need to update the Robertson portrait on the ITV4 coverage.

Missing 'fro.



I'll take it for WSC #7.
Same here for the world title.. No doubt.

I'm mad that the snooker game doesn't have real updates. Would have liked to play Hendry, although he might be like Jimmy White in it. Absolutely rubbish. lol

Ronnie full of praise.

''Opens his backhand like nobody you've seen before. ''

Oh, controversial. Wonder what the talk tennis experts think of that wee one.
