this is some rivalry. Maybe the greatest. And its their 68th meeting which means they will equal the Steve Davis-Jimmy White match up (they also faced each other 68 times). But unlike Davis-White ROS-Higgins has always been a 50/50 match.

To clarify the Tour championship situation Bingham looked very relief after his win and yes it was important however his Tour Championship standing is still not safe. both Kyren Wilson and David Gilbert are not very far behind him and both playing in Gibralter as is Stuart Bingham and just for good measure things will change dramatically if Higgins or Lisowski wins this week in Preston.

Higgins and ROS not far off now are they with 68?


According to cuetracker Hendry and Davis faced each other 66 times. White-Davis 68 times and ROS-Higgins will be the 68th time on Friday. So no doubt in the end it will be the most prolific rivalry.

Yeah Higgins and Ronnie will end up the most prolific rivarly ever.

But one day that could be beaten with the amount of tournaments nowadays. But those 2 players would have to play well themselves for a long period.

Considering how many open draw tournaments there are these days, it's maybe not as likely as you might think. Lots of opportunities for top players to avoid each other.

1-0 Jack.

He played a really good frame there in terms of shot selection, but should have had the frame wrapped up 10 minutes ago if not for some lax position.
