Mark Selby

Vocable (All English) - - On Parle D'eux… -

Mark Selby won his third snooker world cham­pi­onship in four years last month. Along with Steve Davis, Stephen Hendry and Ron­nie O’Sul­li­van, he is now one of a se­lect band of four play­ers to re­tain the ti­tle dur­ing its fa­bled 40-year res­i­dency at the Cru­cible Theatre. When he won, Selby had been snooker’s No1 player for 116 con­sec­u­tive weeks and his record £375,000 win­ner’s cheque means his po­si­tion at the top of the world rank­ings is more or less ce­mented for an­other year.
