Who's the most improved player of all time? Barry Hawkins or Stuart Bingham? I would never have thought either would be major contenders but both have had very good careers.

It's better when they recreate actual shots, rather than bungling trick shots that are actually set up to work perfectly.

Has to be Bingo. World Champion. Doesn't get any better than that. Nicer to watch too. Lovely cueing style.

Bingham gets the nod.

Aside from being World Champ, plus Hawkins had reached semis of rankers before and was more of an accomplished player than Bingham.

Ronnie's fault for comparing Higgins with God all the time.

Seconded.

Sounds stupid but Selby must be up there, surely?

Or does he get discounted because of how young he was when he improved? It's been fairly drastic though.

This might be just like the Scottish Open final 2 years ago...

Higgins started superb with 3 centuries yet Fu managed to get a lead and never looked back.

Yes. Higgins was looking good at 3-0 up here.

Put some music on. Makes me focus more.

Before I was playing with my phone, and checking the screen when the commentary said something or reacted.

Ronnie says Higgins must feel like Ronnie when he lost in the last 16 of the 2016 Worlds.

Hawkins played about 10 times better in that match than he is doing today.

Know it happens to everyone occasionally, but see that red pop up past the blue on John Higgins break a lot.

John's safety has been 10x better than Ronnie's as well.

Very true.

Ronnie kept hitting the bump of the middle pocket all the time.
