I suspect Mark Selby might wish he could start again!

That's some effort to take the last 3 frames.

Selby must be your worst nightmare to play

In off the brown three escape attempts in a row. :lol:

Great resolve from Selby in this comeback, let's hope he completes it now. I've really enjoyed this final despite the lack of break building, some really unique frames and a great tactical battle.

This. And the fact both players have been making unexpected mistakes just adds to the intrigue.

This match should be finished by next Monday I'd imagine.

Wow, what a turnaround. Higgins will be delighted to get out of there early

I do think Selby hit the black there though I have to say

I don't think he hit it. This is tense now, some comeback this from Higgins.

Incredible resolve from both players. The quality's only gone up the closer this has got to the end

3 world titles in 4 years, he's got that trait of being a ruthless, cold blooded champion like Hendry was.

Feel he could be set to dominate for years to come, certainly at the worlds with the longer matches. He's so good under pressure and coming from behind, it's hard to see anyone beating him

Awesome player, glad he won. He has a Hendry feel to him, dominant. Ice in his veins, any other player would have been rattled after that botched black ball contact call.

Cracking result, well done to Selby for defending not just his title but the integrity of the game.

Selby's a monster.

I know he isn't everyone's cup of tea, I suppose like Hendry in the 1990s, but to come back from 10-4 down is a hell of a feat. Let's not forget he was playing garbage as well, as I mentioned in the thread before it got lost. Then, to go again after the Higgins mini-revival to 16-15, with that black ball business, just adds to the magnitude of the feat for me.

Speaking as one with a tendency to never chase a lost cause, I have nothing but the utmost admiration for him.

Yeah he's a great champion, and could become one of the greats if he continues this standard over the next few years.

You will struggle to find any snooker player outside of the top 10 who doesn't bet on snooker. Unfortunately for them some get caught.

Interesting to see that he actually made a profit!

Forgot that snooker is back. World's top 6 all beaten in the second round of the China Championship - Selby, Higgins, Trump, Ding, Fu and Hawkins.

Ronnie O'Sullivan lost today to Luca Brecel having been 4-1 up.

Shaun Murphy and Ali Carter in the semis.

Brecel beats Murphy 10-5. £150K to the winner, plus 150K ranking points puts him in the top 16.
