The Royal London Watches Grand Prix final was one of the strangest I've ever seen.
John Higgins was in complete control at 7-2, even though he wasn't playing his best stuff.
He became unusually anxious, Ryan Day recovered, and then the mistakes grew on either side.
In the end, Higgins won 9-7 to cap a great week at the SECC in Glasgow.
Does anyone now seriously prefer the round robin format to the random draw?
Those who warned it would produce a sub standard winner were well and truly proved wrong.
Unlike last year, not a single player has publicly complained about the tournament format. Neither did I hear any moans about conditions or much else for that matter.
The venue was first class, the crowds were very encouraging, the tournament was well organised and there was plenty of top quality snooker and interesting stories.
Judd Trump came good for the first, but surely not last, time.
Day proved his fighting qualities by coming through three deciders, including a 55 clearance to the black to see off Mark Selby.
Peter Ebdon added a bizarre bit of theatre by lying on the floor after suffering some bad luck at the end of his defeat to Jamie Cope.
All in all, the Grand Prix was a success story.
Don't let anyone tell you interest in snooker is over in the UK. There's plenty of life in this sport yet.
