Centuries galore as debutant Selby smashes Hendry to meet O'Sullivan
It's time for the Premier League Snooker Final: Ronnie O'Sullivan v Mark Selby
Mark Selby was the first of the two to qualify for the final after smashing Stephen Hendry in a 5 - 0 victory with centuries galore and will now meet defending champion Ronnie O'Sullivan in the 2008 Premier League Final.
Ronnie, defending champion and consecutive winner for the last four years faced Joe Perry in his semi-final and had a much harder time of it than Mark Selby.
O'Sullivan made errors in the 5-4 win over Perry, and by his own admission could have lost this match. "I'm pleased with the win and to be in the final but there were so many mistakes the match could've gone either way," said O'Sullivan.
In the betting we have the market priced with Ronnie O'Sullivan the 8/13 favourite and Mark Selby the 6/5 outsider.
Taking the last round into consideration, the 6/5 about Mark Selby may look a fair bet, as in beating Hendry, Selby produced three consecutive centuries on his way through a faultless match and has nothing but form.
He is however, against Ronnie O'Sullivan. And lest we forget how good Ronnie is.
8/13 could be a big price for the Rocket, as any snooker fan will have at some point witnessed his speed and ability which without question are in abundance.
It's a hard one to call, but there will be no laughter from the Jester come the end of the evening, as Ronnie O'Sullivan should come out on top in this evening's final.
