You can say all players threw championship away Hendry in 02 and 97 you can add a few on for every player. Last year was no shoo in playing selby even with a lead as it proved.

You're right, 5 titles is not enough for someone of Ronnie's ability.
And I disagree with you to an extent regarding titles defining a player's career. Yes, it does for about 99% of players. It certainly did for a characterless robot like Hendry who is purely defined by what he won and nothing else.
And then you have the 1% like Alex, Jimmy and Ronnie who go above and beyond mere titles. Their careers mean more than what they simply won.
