Report gobelins September 14, 2018 7:55 PM BST
gj - I didn't see the match today, but reading about it and looking through this thread it looks like K.Wilson spurned plenty of chances, and missed the boat this morning in particular. I do definitely think he is still in awe of R.O'Sullivan, J.Higgins and M.Selby. I took particular note of a reply by thepunter which says he took on a 20% pot instead of a safety shot, and I do think he pushes the boat out a bit too often. He is such a good long potter, but his shot selection definitely still needs some work.

Maybe as snooker fans we should all marvel that a true great like O'Sullivan can turn up at these events and run through the field, although he clearly isn't at his best. But, it just re-enforces what most people on here feel - that the standard these days isn't that high, despite the opposite view being constantly forced upon us, via that red-herring measure of quality - the ever-increasing number of century breaks.

And, as much as I admire O'Sullivan, Higgins, Selby (and now Williams) it really is depressing that these players still dominate the sport despite being passed their collective bests. The time is ripe for a young player to come through and go to the very top - I still think it is very possible that it will be Wilson, but maybe not just yet!
Report Latalomne September 14, 2018 9:25 PM BST
In a strange sort of way, I think the way ROS has played this week (and to an extent usually does these days) applies a strange kind of pressure to an opponent.  Let's be honest, he was pretty ropey himself today.  The way he plays with such gay abandon, totally backing himself to score more points than his opponent through potting balls - regardless of their tariff of difficulty - rather than playing safety, when it presumably means so much more to them, seems to put them in a curious place.  I think Wilson was a bit suckered in by the whole thing today, taking on shots he shouldn't (possibly wouldn't against anybody else) have been taking on....  That doesn't excuse some of the balls he missed, however....
Report gobelins September 14, 2018 10:01 PM BST
I think there are certainly times when O'Sullivan genuinely doesn't care if he wins or loses, but I would be amazed if he takes that kind of attitude into the final. That said, there are certain opponents he will never take that attitude with, irrespective of his mind-set (Murphy, Williams and Carter to name 3). Some players believe they need to play perfect snooker to beat him, and make the most of any chances they are given, meaning they play shots against him that they wouldn't against most other opponents. They undoubtedly play the man and not the table whereas O'Sullivan is generally the complete opposite. He may never win another World title but he is still the main man.

Gobe, spot on with OSullivan there, he didn’t give a fck whether he won or lost that match, just went for everything and if it worked out then grand, if not well he’s home a day or two earlier. Win-win either way.

As for Kyren you could be kind and say he went for a few too risky shots and mark it down to naivety, but that’s not why he lost a match that was there for the taking. He lost because he missed too many key shots and coughed up 3-4 frames as gifts. It was a bottle job pure and simple, a classic choke.

Blimey!  Had a wedding this afternoon, so didn't see the final session but did see the final score.  Didn't realise he was 9-7 up!  TBF, not *THAT* different to what he did against Selby, albeit he ultimately came out on the right side of that one. 

Bit gutted it's a Bazza v ROS final, though.  Bazza doesn't have the stones to beat Ronald in a final, whichever way Ronald plays.
