Re: Snooker/pool thread.
My bad then, I'm not a big follower of Snooker but I caught the last few days in places, and of the times I *was* watching, I kept finding reason to comment on Hawkins ability to keep coming up flush to the cushion to leave his opponent a full table's length of a shot with minimum white visibility.
So it's just me that finds Ronnie massively unlikeable? I don't know what it is, but something about the guy rubs me completely the wrong way.
I don't think there is many people who like his personality. He's probably one of the biggest twats to ever play the game. But he is also arguably the best talent wise so he is naturally gonna get loads of fans.
I like watching him play but don't really like to see him win, but he deserves his success.
Trump said himself that people have an impression of him enjoying the lifestyle too much after he beat Murphy. He's simply taken his foot off the gas since his major wins and let it get to his head. He needs a reaction, and it looked like he meant it after that Murphy win that he wants to prove people wrong.
Trump is my second favourite player, behind Higgins atm. But recently I think he became overconfident for a time. Not giving his opponents as much respect as he should. But then he realised he wasn't going to win many tournaments doing that and I think he is over it.
