    Ronnie takes a year out, straight into the final of the World Championship.

    What a guy.

    O'Sullivan played in the same snooker hall that I used to go to when I was a teenager. He lives in Chigwell which was literally 5mins drive from where I used to live. He went to various snooker halls around the area - but he went often enough to the one I went to.

    Played a few frames against him, never won one of course. Snooker was never my game pool was.

    The guy is unreal. Hendry had his prime before turning 30. If Ronnie can do this year in year out then getting 3 titles should be a formality with this caliber of competition. How low has snooker sunk..

    it may seem like an odd thing to say about a man who won the world championship 5 times but i think he has underachieved by only having 5, if he had his head fully screwed on he would of surpassed hendry's 7 already in my opinion, personally i don't think he'll win 3 more and surpass hendry now, he's getting on in age so time is running out for him to do that, 5 times is a great achievement tho...

    I'm not sure whether he's even interested in winning 3 more wc's.

    I don't think anyone here is old enough to be able to relate to Davis in his prime

    Also, Ronnie is fucked in the head but that doesn't mean he won't have his mood swings in the future. He probably can't be arsed to play properly anymore but if he can pull what he pulled now then I see no reason why he wouldn't win more. Who cares how old the guy is. Hendry started fucking up before 30 and Ronnie continues to blow his opponents out of the water despite getting older and older. No one knows what he can really achieve in the coming years. Of course he is an underachiever, but a brilliant one at that.

    I think this year it's impossible to predict the champion. I don't even know who is supposed to be the favorite this time.
