Higgins and Bingham battle for supremacy

John Higgins and Stuart Bingham are locked in a titanic battle to win a place in the quarter finals of the world championships. After 16 frames the pair still cannot be split and it promises to be edge of the seat drama in tomorrow’s final session. The highlight of the second session was Stuart’s maximum attempt which broke down on 112 and the drama continues tomorrow evening.

Ding Junhui battled from 5-3 down to lead 9-7 going into tomorrow evening’s final session. Ding stroked in breaks of 50,55,60 and 81 to wrestle back control of this last 16 encounter and it will be interesting to see Judd’s response as he bids for a place in the quarter finals.

Barry Hawkins leads Kyren Wilson 9-7 in a match that has been of the highest quality. This high quality encounter has already featured 7 centuries and tomorrow final session promises to be an absolute classic.
