Davis is very insightful. I hope they've got him for the final; it deserves him, instead of know nothing Taylor and 'he's the favourite at evens for this frame now' Thorne.

Carter is just a diferent animal at the Worlds so it almost doesnt matter his previous head to head against Selby.


Yeah I said the same thing after the PTC finals.

Wild mentioned yesterday, that Carter is one the these players who are affected by previous matches and h2h records and that's why Selby will beat him. Although there certainly is some truth to that, I disagree in this context, OK Carter lost to Ronnie 3 times at the Crucible but what is often forgotten is how well Ronnie had to play in all these matches to win. If Selby doesn't step it up, he will lose it's a simple as that.

Think it's inevitable, that one of Carter or Robertson will make the final from the bottom half.


We could get the long awaited third installment of the Ronnie vs Carter Crucible Final trilogy. :D

Frodo has never struck me as being bright.

Is this the first time you've seen him play?


No, it was a serious question, just wondering whether it's tactics or he's just slow in the head. Takes too long to see a shot some players see in seconds.
