13-11 to the new world number one
Must be about ten years since Ronnie was top dog?
Must be.
Can't work out how Selby was ranked 1.
Doesn't seem to have had a result in the longest time.

He won both the 2017 China Open and World's which are two of the tournaments with the most prize money and the last two tournaments of this year.

So expect him to slip a hell of a lot by the end of next month.

Robertson has won the China Open. Me thinks it's either him, Ronnie or Trump that will win the World Championship.

Robertson has moved into the top half of the draw by winning. Other top seeds in that half are Williams, Higgins and Kyren Wilson.

Trump, Ronnie, Selby and Mark Allen in the other half.

Trump will never win the worlds he struggles over the long format can't see anything but a Ronnie win this year Selby has been shite this year as has Higgins and Murphy. Allen been inconsistent Hawkins and Bingham always seem to do well over the long format

I think Trump is a different player this year. And other than the year he won it, I can't remember Bingham having a decent run at the World's.

Just looked your right tbf pretty crap. Hawkins is solid as is Ding but he is in same quater as Ronnie. Hawkins and Wilson both look solid in top half

Big name out in qualifying, Marco Fu. According to Wiki, it'll be the first time he's not at the Crucible since 2004.

I was there last night. For about half an hour he was a world beater, won 3 in a row and 2 with total clearances

He then just fell apart.

6 or 7 Chinese this year if Ning completes the comeback thats gotta be a first. First time Fu and Day have failed to qualify for a while. Carter can fuck off the horrible little prick

Did you see the final frame in the Donaldson match last night on the stream?

Donaldson went from 9-4 to 9-9, he missed what was effectively frame ball (the final red), cacked himself, final frame took about half an hour on the final red and colours as Ning got the 2 snookers needed , and somehow Donaldson fell over the line
