Higgins Wins Saga Masters

Mon Jan 23, 2006 8:54 am

well, what a finish in the snooker!

9-9, last frame and Higgins is 60 - 0 down, with 70 left to play for. Higgins plays the red into the middle pocket, the ball is getting slower and slower, higgins thinks hes left it over the pocket and starts heading to his seat thinking its over, then with its last gasp the red drops.

A few balls later and higgins plays a lovely double on a red to leave him an easy clearup on the colours, to win a nailbighting final.

Lovely snooker, anyone else watching?

Awesome final! Right down to the wire!

I don't think i've ever seen a snooker match (i'm not the world's greatest fan, but still..), that has gone down to the last ball to decide it

Fantastic match, i'm glad it went to the final frame.

Higgins a worthy winner, if only for that final clearup following that dodgy red  Smile

Dodgy red? A shot extremely well judged by an expert entertainer deliberately designed to get the audience on the edge of their seats........ Silly
