Higgins at 2.8 - sure to come to come down a bit... With conspiracy head on - not good for the game to have a one sided final.

Also re frame betting: there-clothed table is "like night and day" says Higg. Worth getting on whoever gets in first now?

Also, Higg as played on the re-clothed (and dare we say - er 're-cushioned' with softer jaws) table and ROS has not. What might that give the Scot - 8-10% advantage this afternoon?

No prediction from Snookerbacker yet but the Cuetracker prediction tool says Higgins slight favorite! Although if it went on more recent form only this would be a better guide I think:
I'm all out of angles bow. Any more for any more?

been top class snooker all week imho,should be +50 breaks aplenty here,over 12.5 50 breaks and a smaller bet on Higgins for me,an well practised and in form Higgins is a formidable opponent for anyone

p.s jill douglas looking extremely milftasticLoveLove

Ok. If the new cloth means whoever gets in first wins the frame - it could be flip-flop the whole way. If the ball run means ROS takes an early lead the market over-reaction and the subsequent value on Higg could be enormous...

Everyones going to fancy beating o'sullivan now,his long game has gone even on the manholes which gives every player more confidence ahainst him.It was only a matter of time same thing with Hendry before he retired,bottle goes then that's it lot more twitches and easy pots missed and huge losses of confidence,in o'sullivans case you may even see an extreme example.In saying that davis took it in his stride and still got good results,if you can except that you're going to miss easy balls and not play to the same standard then he could still be very competitive.Think davis has probably played to the best standard at the age of 45+ that I've seen even though he hardly won anything at that age..

So many so called experts still rave about Ronnie when he's made a century ("good as ever" etc) but he's become two different players really. In the second half of a frame, around the pink and black, with no obvious difficulties, he still looks supreme; but in the early stages of a frame, or in broken play, his play under pressure was very ordinary throughout the match and even in previous matches. In the latter stages last night, Ronnie showed no self-awareness. He continued to go for long pots rather than trying to be pragmatic and playing within limitations. In order to remain a serious force he needs to improve his long game and learn to adapt to situations more sensibly. There might still be another major tournament or two in him but at the moment he doesn't look to be enjoying it under pressure.
