Any interest in the Snooker?

Robertson knocked out. Couldn't believe how off his game he seemed.

O'Sullivan is gone as well.

I think Snooker is kind of in a bit of crisis. It's become too much of an "form on the day" free for all.
We need someone to come and dominate the game for a few years. too many "excellent" players struggling with finding form when they need it, and tournaments are become too much like dice rolls.

Really? You don’t think that makes it boring? It’s what I like about golf, very few total dominators over the year.

Haven’t been too close to snooker lately, is it form on the day or similar talents?

I think when they banned drink Snooker started to go downhill.. I was too young for the Hurricane but, have hugely fond memories of watching jimmy White, Steve Davis, Ray Reardon, John Virgo Dennis Taylor et al making exhibition shots in major championships whilst boozed up, it was fun.. Then Stephen Hendry came along

It does and it doesn't. When Stephen Hendry was dominating the game, that was boring, because of his amazing consistency. He Michael Schumacherd the fun out of it. But you do need someone, a Ronnie O'Sullivan, a Steve Davis, a "one to beat" that's what made the famous black ball final so alluring, it was "the champion" versus "a contender".
Now a days it just feels like no one is likely to win, it just depends on form that day. Snooker needs someone to dominate for a year or two to wake everybody back up.

Judd Trump is about the most exciting player, he plays exhibition snooker constantly, but is vulnerable to rookie errors when it come to more boring shots, his break offs are usually poor, saftey play, break building usually goes wrong etc, and he has to pull miracle shots out of the bag, which he does regularly.
Like Jimmy White he is clearly an untamed, natural talent, but he is vulnerable to being out played on the day by "on form match players", who can reliably finish a frame without losing position and making life hard for themselves.

Ding Junhui plays like a word champion, makes long shots to get in, century break, frame over. Rarely fucks up due to poor decision making.

Kyren Wilson is kind of an exciting new player, he's up and coming, but is already defeating great players, it'll be fun to see if he becomes a dominating figure in the game for a few years.
