Hendry won the WSC with a broken arm.
Jimmy White end off.
Being an ex professional I was lucky to have met a lot of the top players (including an unforgettable marathon drinking binge with the late n great Alex Higgins) n I have to say Hendry was a more aggressive n exciting attacking player than O'Sullivan but O'Sullivan might be a more complete player due to his more measured safety game. O'Sullivan will never be a Hendry but he's a good front runner.
The perfect combination would be 10 lines Kirk with 18 pints Bill with 10 lines Cliff, that would be one hell of a session of snooker.
tactical awareness/nous/safetyplay is so underrated in my opinion!, selby,j higgins,s davis&o'sullivan(although he hates to use it so I would discount ronnie from this!) all have this and can win with their b-games and if you have your foot on selby or higgin's throat make sure you put your other foot there too because they don't know when they are beat!, robertson is a(very good)1trick pony!.
No surprises there. Ronnie is the best breakbuilder. Selby has the best temperament.I'd argue that there isn't much difference between Tactical Astuteness and Safety Play. But, I'd also point out that both Higgins and Selby deserve the mentions so it was just a way of mentioning them both.Technique is a pretty silly one. Players have different techniques. No one right way to play.
Being Neil Robertson
Gotta be the grinder Cliff Thorburn, the personalaity of Steve interesting Davis, the realllly slowww Terry Griffith’s, Cliff Wilson unbeatable in the dark and Big Bill Werbinek after ten pints, and Kirk Stevens sniffing all the time, mix them together, be unbeatable
