Higgins wins first two frames. Williams is strong though. Got a feeling we could be in for a long night.

Depressingly ominous from Higgins. Williams has now won just one of the last nine frames.

Hopefully my reverse mojo is going to work.

Williams wins the next 2, now leads 17-15. Needs just 1 more.

That's more like it Mark. 3 frames left and he needs but one of them. Come on my son.

Williams just missed frame and championship ball. :shock:

Surely not. :hush:

Yep, Higgins steals another. 17-16.

Frame 34. Williams in first again. Can he put that Pink at of his mind?

Come on Mark.

Hats off to Higgins for making a match of that from 14-7 down

Some achievement though from Williams, winning it 15 years after his last World title. To think he had to be talked out of retirement by his wife.

Amazing stuff.

Fantastic final and the result I wanted.
Fair play to Higgins though, he battled all the way and was gracious in defeat but so pleased for Mark Williams, a great champion.

Thank f*ck for that. Great, great final - good vs evil and all that. Williams is the MAN - for winning under such vast pressure from the cheating bagpipe, and for honouring his promise :)

There's an interview on the BBC where John Higgins says he's lost his appetite for Snooker. Hopefully that means he'll give up soon and won't make an appearance at Sheffield next April. We can live in hope.
