SELBY HAS SILVER - NOW FOR THE GOLD

Mark Selby has won the inaugural 888.com 'Silver Chip' award for his outstanding achievement in reaching the Crucible semi-finals.

The award was voted for by the Snooker Writers Association and will be an annual occurence at the World Championship.

Selby is much improved in recent years, despite his curious cueing style in which he rocks from side to side, like a marksman taking aim, before striking the cue ball.

But it works for him and I wish him all the best this weekend.

Congratulations to Selby! Last night's semi between Murphy and Selby was fantastic. One of the best matches I've seen at the Crucible. I'm pretty neutral for the final and wish them both well. Just hoping for a good match.

Dave,

I read a quote by Trevor Baxter saying it was awfully close vote by the writers to choose between Selby and another player. Who was it again?

Thanks, Joe
