Sorry Pink, I was a bit rude, but instead of doing the same old top 10 stuff over and over again can we try something new? What about what your favourite player would look like as a women or film character, couple of examples below (think this would make a good competition):

The match you chose as a winner has a lot of historical importance, but otherwise it was a garbage match

That's the brief no?

Yes but I think some people might choose certain matches because they think those matches are legendary or historically important.. I'm not going to pay attention to that stuff, just matches I enjoy watching.

I found the 2006 final far more horrifying.

1. O'Sullivan 17:16 Selby - WC 2020
2. A. Higgins 16:15 White - WC 1982
3. J. Higgins 10:9 O'Sullivan - Masters 2006
4. Hunter 10:9 O'Sullivan - Masters 2004
5. Hendry 9:8 O'Sullivan - Charity Challenge 1997
6. Williams 10:9 Hendry - Masters 1998
7. Davis 13:11 Higgins - WC 2010
8. Hendry 18-17 White - WC 1994
9. O'Sullivan 10:9 Trump - Tour Championship 2019
10. O'Sullivan 9:8 Selby - UK 2007

This is a very personal list and very biased towards O'Sullivan matches. I didn't even include the 1985 final which was obviously a legendary match...

That and 2010 are the only world finals I could not see through to the end. Both utterly dreadful matches.

2. O'Sullivan 6-0 Walden Masters 2014
3. O'Sullivan 10-9 Trump Tour Championship
4. Selby 13-12 Higgins WC 2009

7. Robertson 6-5 Higgins Grand Prix 2009
8. O'Sullivan 9-8 Selby UK 2007

Flabbergasted that you didn’t put Williams 18-16 Higgins in there!

And I’ve just realised Higgins is the only one of the 93 Trio not to win a world final against another member of the Trio. And both Ronnie and Williams have beaten him.

Ronnie > Williams > Higgins? :chin:

Re: Your top ten matches of all time?

Postby Andre147

Higgins might not have beaten Ronnie and MJW in a World Final, but he did beat them in 3 of the world titles he won, in various rounds:

3 times against Ronnie, in 1998 Semis, 2007 and 2011 Quarter-Finals.

Once v MJW in 2011 Semis, and he beat Ronnie and MJW in consecutive rounds.

So I would say he's done it against his 2 biggest rivals.

My “Ronnie > Williams > Higgins” was tongue-in-cheek, to be fair. I’d definitely have Higgins above Williams.

Just thought it was interesting.

I know it was.

But I thought it was interesting to note Higgins beat them in 3 of the world titles he won, and in 2011 beat both.

Also interesting:

Selby beat Ronnie in a world final, Ronnie beat Higgins in a world final, and Higgins beat Selby in a world final.
