    Gripping last day that. Really happy with the result, is always nice to have a new world champ. It was pretty ugly viewing yesterday but to come back from 10-5 against arguably the GoaT is some effort.

    Yeah congrats to Selby. The fact his highest break of the final was 70 odd just shows he how much he grafted for it, especially after a marathon semi........great effort.

    He did get a 127 towards the end but yeah most of it was pure graft, which must have been partly tactical.

    You probably have to be middle-aged or a snooker historian to have heard of him, but I was rather sad to read of the passing of former Pot Black Champion Graham Miles at the age of 73.

    Used to love Pot Black (watched as a kid with my Dad I might add )

    Golden age of tv sports where the players could smoke a dart and down a pint between shots

    Any snooker players here? Haven't picked up a cue in 20 years since I moved to Australia but I had what the English call a "misspent youth" and it is probably the thing I miss the most about the UK. I knew and played O'sullivan a few times when he was just a kid (about 10).........he was a little **** back then but **** he was good!!
