    getSelectedName(event) {

        for (let i = 0; i < selectedRows.length; i++){
            alert("You selected: " + selectedRows[i].opportunityName);

Use a column with a type button, with variant = base so it looks like a link. Also, provide an action name(myActionName) to identify that the button is clicked.

    label: "Percentage",
    type: "button",
    typeAttributes: { label: { fieldName: "confidence" }, name: "myActionName", variant: "base" }

Handle the row action like below.

handleRowAction(event) {
    if (event.detail.action.name === "myActionName") {
        // open a modal.
