I want him to win even more now Dan, just because it annoys you so much. :lol:

Still firmly in the ABH (Anyone But Higgins) camp but starting to think the winner will come from the other semi. I'd like to see Barry beat JH in the final now. Nice guys finishing first for a change.

Yep would love to see Bazza lift the trophy. Especially if that involves beating the fat cheat in the final and making him cwy.

These semis have been crackers, after the disappointment of the QFs (Trump/Weasel aside).

Williams and Hawkins semi was a classic and could have gone either way but Williams' class and experience just got him over the line. The best match of the tournament and some of Williams potting was phenomenal. Hoping he takes Higgins to the cleaners.

Higgins 1 Williams 5

I reckon some on here (Whitey, Dan) will be happy with this start

Why are so many in the crowd cheering for Higgins? Are the scotch so nationalistic they’d cheer a filthy cheat?

Got a bit twitchy when 7-7 but glad to see Williams take the last 3 frames to stretch his lead again.
10-7 is a decent lead to protect but like him or loathe him and I know most on here hate him, but one thing Higgins is not, is a quitter. He never knows when he is beaten and will fight all the way. However, I am convinced this is Williams' year and the Welsh potting machine will win today, or at least I bloody well hope he does.

7 Frames on the spin for Williams. Now got a very nice lead. 14-7.

I'm still not feeling overly confident, if anyone can claw themselves back, it's Higgins.


I still remember when Jimmy White led Stephen Hendry 14-8. I thought that was done and dusted. Jimmy then failed to win another frame and lost 14-18.

Unforgettable, but Williams is mentally stronger than Jimmy.

Btw I may be alone in this but does anyone else find John Virgo really quite annoying?


"where's the Cue ball going?"


I damn well know where I like to see it go. Headbanger

Here he comes. 14-10 now. I'm getting very nervous.

Calling it now, Higgins win this next frame then he will go on to win the Match.


EDIT: Phew!! Williams one the last frame of the session for a 15-10 Lead. :thup:

Could of done with JH winning the last frame before the break if he wanted to make Mr Charisma get twitchy. Great final so far though.

Really want Williams to win this.
Got a ticket today for a 1st session qtr final next year for me and my old man. He is currently having treatment for cancer and thought this would give him a lift. He's always watched the snooker as have I and I can't wait to actually get him to the Crucible for a taster. A nice thing to look forward to. We all need a bit of that.
