    Ronnie won the first session but not playing great think Mark TKO could have taken him. He is still 6-2 up which bad news for Wilson.

    Wilson doing well in the 2nd session. 8-6 Ronnie.

    Ronnie got out of jail there leaving that session 10-7 up.

    that's the worst session I've seen him play all tournament yet somehow only lost it 5-4.

    Wilson will fancy his chances tomorrow but needs a good start.

    This final is bloody torture for a Wilson backer. Wilson is totally bumming it even though Ronnie couldn't play any worse if he tried. Wilson being behind is a joke but three behind is criminal. Ronnie will come out flying today, guaranteed. And even if he don't Wilson doesn't have the cue ball control to run a sequence of easy frames (please let this work).

    The Chinese takeover was a bit premature but there's currently around a dozen in the top 50 and a dozen or so more in the 128 (the max number of pro's per season). The majority are in their early twenties and they have plenty "wonder kids" knocking in maximums and what not on their own amateur/junior circuit. The majority couldn't play this year because of Covind.

    More surprising is the young Europeans coming through - Russians, Ukraine, Poland, etc - due to the extensive Eurosport coverage over the past few years. When Ronnie was having a pop at the lack of talent he definitely meant British.

    Wilson getting beat up isn’t he. Does Ronnie always break left handed? Never noticed that.

    Ronnie picking up the pieces. Wilson having a mare of a first final. He’ll come again.

    Amazing he’s going to win it when you’d probably give him a C+ based on his usual standard

    B- tops

    Don’t think anyone has run him close in the finals he has won. Higgins many years ago got about 13 I think from memory. Dott and Carter single figures.

    Wilson was a major disappointment, never turned up and just kept missing simple shots. O'Sullivan was never under pressure, never had to work to win a frame or anything .... just cantered home playing 60% snooker.

    Boring final that turned into a procession really. I can think of a few players who would at least have made O'Sullivan do a bit of work under pressure

    To be fair ronnie had come through some tough opposition to get there first round aside.

    Ding had him level after 16.Williams was 6 2 up and a reborn Selby is the last person you want to play against in a best of 33. Ronnie was behind from frame 11, 4 down at one stage and 2 down with 3 to play.

    Can he win 7? I'm not so sure but you know he can't be written off

    Yes he has been doing it for a while. Totally disrespectful to other snooker players, that is what Selby would say.

    Wilson is the nicest bloke in the world but I can't stand young men in their pomp who act like that after getting humiliated - bringing the wife and kids out like he won something. He flat out bottled it and should feel ashamed getting beat like that. Ronnie is the GOAT, for sure, but he's never played worse and won so easy. He was lucky as fuck all the way through this tournament, especially against Selby when he was beat and got away with bashing 'em all over the shop. And Ding would have murdered him if he played like that in the second round.

    I'll confidently bet he never gets two more (beat Hendry's record) and don't fancy he'll ever win another. Name written on it this year. (I'm normally a better loser than Kyren But 17 days of my pocket torture ends like that. )
