I'll say it still is. Too many simple mistakes being made by him.

Is Selby really playing that well? Nah, missing plenty long pots...but Murphy missing easy chances, or the white goes in.

 

Really feel Murphy had to win that last frame this afternoon.

 

Done well to get this frame though when it looked like he'd lost it.

Probably is but that was a hell of a save by Murphy.

I'd say Selby did all the damage last night - and he was superb. Not nearly as good today but Murphy has been shocking.

This is really dull. Doherty trying hard to pretend that Selby is under pressure but he’s absolutely cruising here. 18-13 nailed on

Realistically, Selby could end up winning more world titles than Hendry. So few players are consistent these days. He can hold it together for two weeks.

I find it strange how Hendry won his last title at the age of 30 and Selby won his first at the age of 31

 

No idea how Hendry failed to win another title after 1999

I think Selby started out as a pro pool player and moved into snooker at a late age.

I always found it hysterical that his gf and i think he may have married her was called Mandy Tart

The laughter from the crowd obviously listening to the commentary and Virgo expecting Selby to take that pot on but instead play a negative shot 🤣

Nail biting to the end , Murphy had a chance to get it to 17-16.

Unbelievable this...I never realised Selby was quite as big a ***** tbh. 

 

It's the likes of O'Sullivan and Trump that prop the game up.

 

If we had 32 Selby's in the 1st round nobody would watch it or maybe couldn't due to the fact they would be hard pushed to keep their eyes open.

I loved snooker from a kid right into my 30’s but I’ve hardly lifted a cue or even watched a game for years now. I had my own full size table for years but once I got rid of that it seemed to drain away. 

I try to watch now and again but it honestly bores me I don’t know why I fell out of love with the game quite as much. That Shelby clip is ridiculous though how he doesn’t receive some kind of caution or warning there is beyond a joke. He’s taking the fecking piss!

im sure selby holds the "record" for the longest time to take a shot at around 30 minutes. however it is one of those records with a caveat, the fire alarm went off and it took 30 minutes to evacuate and be let back in to play the next shot

I remember players like Terry Griffiths and Cliff Thorburn who i honestly never watched cos they were so bad with slow play but I don’t think even they were bad as that arsehole.

for me it seems to be a bit of gamesmanship, similar to peter ebdon. play slow to throw your opponent off their game. imagine if we had a WC final between selby and ebdon, it would keep going until next seasons WC

Yeah it’s gamesmanship no doubt about it. I’d Forgot about that knob Ebdon :facepalm:

There needs to be some rule brought in to be able to caution them and after a certain period of time and it becomes a foul and a free ball to the opponent or something. 
Hideous and does nothing to make anyone want to watch.
