How do you get on the black? Tough shot to face.
I remember watching that open mouthed, wondering what the hell he was doing.
Yes that shot tells us all we need to know, as if there were any doubts anyway... I watched it live too last year, and when he played that I was just astonished like Mike Hallet was when he commented when he said: "Hang on, what's he played there?".
The miss on the pink earlier on when he was about to make the clearance was pretty doubtfull too cause he missed it by some margin, and the very last shot he played on the black to get it safe... well that was just desperation cause he knew he couldn't win the match for his own benefit.
Good job Higgins didn't miss that snooker on the pink otherwise things coould have gotten very interesting indeed for Lee.
12 years for me is about right, I too would have prefered a life ban, but he's not coming back when he's 50 anyway cause he's not a Davis or a Jimmy and like he says by then even his father could beat him.
What a disgrace to snooker, I always liked him as a player and especially that Rolls Royce cue action, but his antics have nothing to do with that, he belongs to the scrap yard now.
