Anybody else watching the World Championship? It's Selby and Higgins in the final and it's shaping up to be a good one. 9-11 to Higgins atm.

Hope Higgins wins... don't much like Selby... don't know why, but there's a smug, shit eating arrogance about him that gets on my wick...

Selby starting to take control, unfortunately. Hope Higgins manages to pull himself together over the break between sessions. Got to agree with Alf that there's something about Selby that irritates me... I'd really hoped Ding would win their Semi.

Selby did used to annoy me as well but i've seen him interviewed a few times and he's seems friendly and modest. Apparently he's well liked. On the other hand the ever expanding John Higgins always irritated me. Hope they battle this out though.

Yeah, once he beat O'Sullivan, he's was my hope to win the title...

yep. they've been saying for ages that he'll be the first Asian world champion. thought, after last year's near miss, he might have got his revenge over Selby.

Really looking ominous for Higgins now though, isn't it?

starting to be a bit of a procession.

Higgins has never looked that great since his semi onwards. on both occasions his lead was as much to do with his opponent playing worse as anything else. This time, though, his opponent has found his form
