Ronnie was mentally weaker in the past, that's the main reason for his losses. Had he met Steve Peters earlier (let's say in his late 20's or even early 30's), he would have had 10 world titles by now.
And getting back to the topic, I can't believe what I'm seeing with the votes so far. How on Earth can u people vote for Robbo and Bingo as weaker players than Denis Taylor ?
If they were to play a million matches against him, Bingo and Robbo would win a million times. Taylor is a joke compared to them. There are even amateurs nowadays that are better than he ever was. He has made 79 tons in his entire career. Even guys like Ian McCulloch, Rod Lawler and Gerard Greene have made more tons.
I know, the cloths were heavier back in the 80's and tons are not all that matter, but still, there is no way Taylor was a better player than Robbo or Bingo.
