The big four are Selby, Robbo, Ronnie and Ding at the moment. They'll clean up next season. What do you mean by in limbo?
Exactly, those are the big four and Trump is capable of joining them. they, as in they, will probably clean up next season. Point being that I don't see Selby as any more dangerous than he has been over the last few seasons or separating himself from the others. It doesn't mean it's impossible for a player to do that such as Ding, Selby, Ronnie or someone else, but I still sense equality and not really a shift -- time will tell.
Limbo: an uncertain period of awaiting a decision or resolution; an intermediate state or condition.
So I was just saying equality, basically... there has been no decision or resolution of a dominant force in the game. I used the word equality after because the choice of the word limbo was a bit questionable as I was only using it to pertain to a dominant force and not to infer that having equality is not a decision or a resolution. Tangent aside...
OTT because I have seen comments bordering on obituaries for Ronnie and for Selby, like I said far less extreme but I'm more hesitant to jump the gun than in some of the posts I've seen. If all you were doing was stating that Selby will be dangerous in the future as he is now and has been for a few years then I agree. Would I put money on him to become the relative alphamale of the next 3 years of snooker (not necessarily Hendry dominance but a clear sort of top dog in the Lendl mould)? No I wouldn't. At the same time would I be surprised if he did? Also, no I wouldn't, but I also wouldn't be surprised if it was somebody else.
