    Ain't happening for Higgins today

    It looks almost over about 5 minutes ago.

    With regards to an earlier point about players worth watching, Bingham(?) said something along the lines of some players want to express themselves more but the way the game is run these days doesn't allow for it. BBC pundits (including Steve Davis) were on about the tournament being bigger and better before but surely they can see that restricting players from showing their personalities turns more people off than on?

    Higgins needs to come out as the old Higgins to turn this around. Selby definitely going to get a frame so John needs to win the next four to stay in it and make it 17-16

    Anyone's from there on.

    Anyone who watched the semi's feel Selby was incredibly disrespectful towards Ding celebrating 3 times in as many consecutive shots?

    i dislike the way snooker is becoming like darts. these "ton up" signs that the crowd hold up. it is common as muck. i am not anti-gay but faggots should not be allowed to watch snooker.

    Missed that. I tend to switch over if I think he's got a frame in the bag as he annoys me

    Good response this mind. Can't see Higgins taking 4 Ina row now

    Pumped his fist, then screamed come on, then smacked the table. If I was Ding I would have ****ing smashed his head with my cue.

    Didn't look like it hit there, but cracking bit of sportsmanship

    Re: World snooker championships thread

    CONTROVERSIAL!!!!

    Re: World snooker championships thread

    That Selby miss could be crucial. If Higgins claws this back to 16/15 he will have the momentum. Odd final. Both players very scratchy at times.

    Re: World snooker championships thread

    Might be just me but this tournament I feel Selby has got so much luck in the balls, albeit he has taken that luck and put in some cracking performances, but he gets some incredible flicks and kisses that other players never seem to get

    No it's not you I've noticed too. Today it's been unbelievable in his favour so maybe that black deserved to go against him.

    John's safety been a bit lacklustre and that's what might cost him here

    No way should Higgins be allowed to play snooker. Scruffy 6 month ban when Stephen Lee had 12 years.
    Google John Higgins cheat video for those that don't know.
    Disgrace to his sport

    Yes he got away with his pure greed very lightly whilst Lee was hammered.

    Exactly.
    He said he feared for his life so just went with it. What did him and his agent think they were going to when they met those notw blokes?
    Lee had much less evidence against him.

    For whatever reason Higgins was given the benefit of the doubt. Lee wasn't. All incredibly dubious given Higgins appeared to agree a deal for match fixing.
    As for Lee I can't see him returning to the game. He was struggling for form before his ban and will be well past his best when the band ends.

    Congrats to Selby, but sad when he's won it three times and a class talent like Jimmy White hasn't won it once
