There’s been another contender for the best shot of the World Snooker Championship

"The mother of all doubles"

Robert Redmond

“It’s there, it’s close, it’s very close. What a shot this is!”

Mark Selby is trailing Ding Junhui 3-5 after the first session of their semi-final at the World Snooker Championship, but he showed his class with this shot.

Selby, the reigning world champion, hit a brilliant double to the green pocket on Thursday afternoon.

It rivals a shot from Shaun Murphy earlier in the tournament for the best shot of this year’s championship at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.

The 33-year-old, who was 8-ball pool world champion in 2006, pulled off a shot that wouldn’t look out of place on a pool table in the second frame of the session.

It got the crowd, and Ken Doherty on commentary for the BBC, very excited.
