Snooker: Higgins Takes Control

Well great solid match play snooker has put Higgins in a commanding overnight lead against Selby.

Higgins started slowly but managed to take the first 2 frames. Selby then took the next 2 with a break of 67. Selby also took the first frame after the mid-session interval with a break of 116 to move into the lead by 3 frames to 2. The Selby century seemed to wake Higgins up and he took the next 7 frames with breaks of 97, 75, 70 and 100.

Selby scraped another frame but Higgins was too strong and finished the day's play with another century, a 106.

Selby looked a little inexperienced and impatient. His safety wasn't quite up to scratch but he didn't necessarily play badly. Higgins was in devastating form and really looks up for it this time, his third final, having lost and won one title.

If Selby wins tomorrow, it will be the greatest comeback of all time!! Let's hope he makes a game of it. I'm certain he won't be giving it up just yet.
