The John Higgins v Ding Junhui quarter-final at the Wembley Masters last night was about as good as snooker gets. It was a pleasure to commentate on.
Higgins proved what a great champion he is by shrugging off the loss of the eighth frame after missing the black.
He is playing his best snooker since winning the 2007 World Championship. That makes him very difficult to bet against as the Masters enters its final phase.
