    Yeah, this. It could be a really thrilling one this year... Judd and Ronnie being the obvious favourites right now, but with Neil in this kinda form, you never know.
    The three Marks, the "runner-ups" Barry and Ali doin pretty good lately, Kyren will grind his way through, dark horse Luca... I'm looking forward to this.

    She surely is. I loved the way she couldn't help smiling all over the place when Dominic Dale was doing his jester things in his match against Higgins... women like funny men.

    I still miss Michaela when it comes to cuteness. Or milfness, for that matter...

    It's more of a gut feeling.
    Statistically when looking for the world champion it is rarely that it will be the best player of the season. Most of the times the crown at the crucible goes to somebody who had quite a good, but not exactly an outstanding season with multiple tournament wins. The only exceptions in the last fifteen years actually were John Higgins in 2011 and Mark Selby in 2017.

    The point that speaks against him is, that he hasn't had a real consistent tournament all season. He had some great matches, but suddenly in his next match he was pretty poor. The same is true for Mark Selby by the way - and some other players.

    I wouldn't bet on Robertson. He's had an okay season, but 2 or 3 years with little consistency including a lot of early round exits. Lack of consistency doesn't go well with the long format of the Worlds. I do fancy him to get another title, just not this year.
