0-3 to 9-7 Ricky will be delighted

Did great to win 5in a tow but Hawkins is quality so was bound to win a few frames in the session.

Well played Selby, responded well to Carter's fast start and from 5-1 up never looked in any sort of danger which is what you need going into a World Championship campaign, 13-9 a good test for him. He'll be a big favourite for his quarter-final whoever he plays

Just wondering if folk see similarities between the Robbo of today and Hendry in his prime in terms of set-up and technique? I watched Hendry's first 147 and then a Robbo video and I was, wow, they do look similar.

Just noticed a pattern. Every season since 2007, whenever Selby wins a ranker, he never makes it past the last 16 of the Worlds (Lost first round in 2008 and 2012, and last 16 in 2013), but whenever he doesn't win a ranker he makes it to the quarters at least (final 2007; quarters 2009, 2011, 2014 so far, and semis 2010)

It's been a day of anxiety at the Crucible. Selby, Ronnie, Carter, Hawkins all looking anxious. Apparently Selby was happy in his press conference, just knew he had to share the frames in sessions 2 and 3 to get over the line. I mean whenever Carter got to within a couple he pulled away again but I remain to be convinced. I think he lacks a ruthless instinct that Robertson has in abundance.

Wild, you should give Carter more credit. His achievements demand respect. Ali made more World Finals than Selby and won just as many ranking titles. He performed well at the Crucible for years now.

I remember his last 16 match in 2007 against Stephen Hendry who made the UK final that season. Ali hammered him, Stephen looked devastated after Carter lead him after the second session 12-4.
