I agree Judd has under achieved, I would class today's group as the group of death.

Kyren wins 6-5. I'll be routing for him tomorrow of course but unfortunately just can't see him beating Ronnie in a long frame match in a big final. I really hope he proves me wrong. I'll be there tomorrow and one of the 2% of the crowd right behind him!

Great final to attend and witness but I'm just devastated Kyren lost. He really should have won but Ronnie had that mental strength in the deciding frame.

Every time Ronnie wins a match you say the other guy deserved to win. But yeh you are right for once tonight Kyren did deserve it, Ronnie just looked gone, similar to when he beat Trump in this the other year could tell in his body language, a waist coat foul ffs, was lucky that double got a snooker

Glad you enjoyed it
