It is never not a shame to get whitewashed. It is never any mental problem to get beat badly, even consitently so. They all are mature enough to get over it immeaditely.
Thinking about this Allen-Vafaei match. Allen has got better of him quite nastly lately, and has made a 146 and a 145 against him. I would reckon Allen should not to take it any easily this time either. If Vafaei will loss 1-6 and Allen will make an another 146 now, it is not a shame. Mark Allen should take it as a style contest, or to see if he´s solid enough to make an yet another 146.
Or when Kenny´s shot selection completely broke down against Ronnie during that decider a day ago lol. But I am sure Ken Doherty´s good and mature enough to deal with it.
Many of these problems are media-born. No-one understands their sense of humour. Why to write it as a massive mental problem when receiving a beating when obviously it is not ?
Breakaway Tour without any these "problems" ?
There are many of those going-on undergrounds. Just no media-coverage or the prize money. But the lads like Ronnie, Allen, or MJW involved also ?
Could be. Maybe so.
Never overdo it. The trust is always gained first, only then it can be lost. The chinese are not completely wrong about it.
