Mark Selby gained a small measure of revenge over John Higgins by beating the world champion 5-3 to win an invitation event in Warsaw, Poland today.
Selby, newly installed in the elite top 16 for the new season, was beaten 18-13 by Higgins in their Crucible final last month.
The ‘Jester from Leicester’ defeated the 2006 world champion, Graeme Dott, 5-1 in the semi-finals in Warsaw while Higgins beat veteran Steve Davis 5-3.
The tournament, which was broadcast live on Polish television, also featured four local players.
The sport is hugely popular in Poland after extensive coverage of the major events on Eurosport.
