It is only very recently so many matches have been televised, including qualifiers now.

Alex Higgins 31-30 Rex Williams SF 1972 World Championship was meant to have been superb.

Ray Reardon beat Eddie Charlton by the same score in the 1975 World final after being 23-29 behind.

Different playing styles then though.

Good point. Would really have loved to see the '72 final though, Spencer v. Higgins & the birth of a new era...

I think the 2003 Europen Open which Ronnie won v Hendry was a cracking match and it wasn't even televised.

Ronnie often says it was one of his best matches ever. Think he won 9-6.

Sadly Campbell wouldn't have beaten Hendry 9-0 if the cameras had been there.

A couple of matches that stood out on Cue Tracker.

A Higgins 9-8 Hendry UK Champ 85 or 86
Hendry 9-8 Williams UK 1992

Ronnie also lost 9-8 at the 92 UK Champs v Cliff Wilson.

That must have been quite a quick and attacking match. I think Ronnie said in an interview he cried after it and snapped his cue afterwards.
