    Also, this is a bit of a sad way for this to end.

    Unfortunately with no threat on anything other than the escape, you'll struggle to get anything in on a top player like this.

    Trump just needs to keep rolling them up to the pocket.

    No idea who I want to to win now. O'Sullivan has "being a dickhead" where his personality should be but Trump barely has one at all.

    Ronnie for the record for me. Trump isn't offensive, but he just isn't anything really.

    Trump spent the week running up to the tournament slagging off the sport, mainly because his own form was poor. Ive got no time for excuse makers like that. Come on Ronnie.

    Not like O'Sullivan doesn't have form for mouthing off about the sport, the venues he's in, people who aren't as good at snooker as he is, etc.

    Just bin them both out for being turbofannies and bring back... I dunno, Williams and Robertson*.

    * Specifically the mad hair version of Robertson though.

    I don't know why really, but in recent years I've begun to really like Ronnie. Maybe it's because I know there will never be anyone like him ever again.

    Ronnie mouths off all the time. The Trump interview was a toys out of the pram moment because he was asked why his form dipped this season. At least Ronnie is consistent with his bitching, not just when hes having a bad run. Id much have preferred Williams over either mind.

    Thrilling stuff this, O'Sullivan insisting the ball he moved a further 2mm for him to do a nothing shot.

    I hope this hooks all the kids watching

    I'm quick to berate O'Sullivan for...well, being O'Sullivan, but I thought he had a bit of a point there. My eyes might have been playing tricks on me, but it looked like he could see the red before the first foul, then he couldn't until after all the pissing around.

    Trump losing that after having him at snookers required feels big, even in a match as long as this. My predictions are always terrible, but I could easily see O'Sullivan winning the next "mini session" 3-1 or 4-0 and already having an ominous lead.

    I bet it also must be quite unnerving the sheer speed at which Ronnie can take a frame away from you.

    Being 2 behind is not too bad in a first to 18, but then you make it 3 or 4 and suddenly it starts to get away from you.

    I think he had a view of it again at the point he was adamant he didn't but it doesn't really matter much, I just thought it was a lot of palaver over a shot with not that much to gain from it. But then not being an obsessive psycho bell-end is probably why I'm a lazy slob and not a top sporting pro.

    "A match we might still be talking about decades from now."

    Don't undersell it Rob.

    Also what was it O'Sullivan got a warning for? A "gesture" did they say? I missed the end of the first session.

    I've never understood why there's not a miss called if the fouling player is far enough ahead that his opponent needs snookers.

    It would be a fucking horrible rule, the miss rule only exists to stop people deliberately fouling/not trying to hit the object ball. It would be ridiculous if someone like Selby was 90 points down and was able to lay a monster snooker then win the frame. If anything, there's an argument for not calling misses when people get close but don't hit it.

    That's more the point isn't it, that it's a harsh rule when someone is genuinely in a tough snooker, but the reality is, as often showed, that a pro player can basically always hit a ball if it is even theoretically possible if all they are worried about is hitting it.

    Would prefer if Ronnie didn't just run away with this.

    I get your point but if it was the other way round in that situation (ie. the fouling player being behind) then a miss would be called.

    In a strange way I think Ronnie would also be more reserved. I think he'd respect Williams more than he would Trump.

    Yeah absolutely. To be honest, the fact he's dragged himself to a world championship final despite being out of form all season is testament to how trump has evolved from the #naughtysnooker carefree potter to a more seasoned matchplayer, but it's probably ruined the final as a spectacle. I guess it's Williams' fault for being so shit earlier in the semi.

    Yeah I went to the UK championship in York just before covid, and the O'Sullivan fans were loud and annoying enough to do my head in, despite him playing about two tables away from the Marco Fu masterclass me and my mate were watching.

    The crowd have been a shambles all the way through this weekend. All of this phone/shouting out nonsense should see them chucked out and their ticket resold.

    Exactly. A capacity of 1,000 means there'll be plenty of takers so there's no need to placate this behaviour.

    Shaun Murphy and his enormous forehead criticizing his cue action at this point is a bit lol.

    He's in the final of the World Championship, which he's won before mate. I don't think that's his problem.

    It'll just be delaying the inevitable if Trump manages to drag it out that long. O'Sullivan isn't collapsing for long enough to lose this.
