Fecking hell! Trump is absolutely murdering Higgins in the last few frames. So great to watch, such a cockiness in the way he plays.

Fuck Trump! Seriously. No one with a haircut like that should be allowed to win anything. Ever.

Went to the shops when it was 5-5....those were 2 quick frames! Higgins is like a cockroach though. Trump's got to keep his foot on his throat.

That's too conservative even for Lynyrd Skynyrd.

I know they say you make your own luck but Higgins has been so lucky this week - missing balls & leaving nothing on for his opponent, getting out of snookers and inadvertantly snookering his opponent. Jammy sod.

I've found I think from frame 10 with the BBC commentary on youtube. Frames 1-10 are also there from Eurosport, not in English. Want a link?
The final would have been better but for Higgins managing to win his 18th frame when Trump had missed an incredibly easy frame ball and Higgins went on to snooker him behind the pink I think it was, with just the black remaining on the table to get back the snooker he needed to win the frame. 17-16 could have gone either way. Plus Higgins had some tremendous runs of good luck throughout the final in terms of missing balls and leaving nothing on, getting out of snooker and fluking snookers himself in the process etc.

Is "jammy sod" not said in Australia?

ive never heard anyone say 'jammy sod' here, far too english for us. i also like the way americans (that ive always seen) refer to the english as british (just had a couple weeks in the us, got accused of being british at least halfa dozen times :lol: )

This is the Eurosport coverage. Follow the links in the users page to get the rest of the frames.



This is the earliest BBC coverage i've found, starting frame 11. Again follow the links in this users page for the rest of the frames.

Anyone who can confuse an Australian accent for any of the various accents of the British Isles wants shooting. Also, don't get me started on the British = English thing.
Trust the trip went well other than this undoubtedly irritating little theme running through it? :lol:

Annoyed that O'Sullivan and Stephens were edged out in final frame deciders. I'd like Mark Williams to progress, of the old guard. And Selby and Murphy to be eliminated as I don't like either of those two much.
