Ruthless stuff from Higgins. O’Sullivan never really looked up for the fight but Higgins has been immense all week.

That was a remarkable week for Higgins.

With Hendry making a comeback this week, it's given the sport a lift.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

The draw for the qualifiers of the World Snooker Championship has been made

And it has thrown up the biggest sporting clash of this year bar none

Stephen Hendry v Jimmy White

This is bigger than the final

This is bigger than Covid

That's a brilliant draw. I expect White to hammer him but if Hendry wins I wouldn't want to be White's cat.

Very poor standard so far. Hendry2-1 White
Hendry got a snooker on the pink to win the last frame

The dream is slipping away yet again for Jimmy

He's 3-1 down at the interval

I can't believe I didn't stick 50 on Hendry at 11/8

4-1 to Hendry

The good news for Jimmy is that he has taken what is surely an unassailable 35-0 lead in the frame currently in progress

Oh dear

Jimmy misses an easy frame ball at 62-0 up and Hendry clears up to win 66-62

I'm getting a feeling of deja vu on this bank holiday Monday

Still, I'm cautiously optimistic Jimmy can turn this completely hopeless situation around

Ding dong battle in frame 8 now

Currently 1-1 in points

Next pot wins I'd say

As much as I'd like White to come back, it's after 11 and they're taking fcukin hours.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Did you see the miss on the red in frame 7? White just completely missed the ball.
