So how do you get out of this? It baffles John Higgins as once, twice and then three times he bounces the cue ball off the right cushion, aiming to clip the red nearest the pink only to go in-off, via the brown ball.
It leaves Brendan Moore having to use his best ‘car park attendant’ skills (according to Dennis Taylor) as he guides referee Jan Verhaas where to replace the balls.
After all that, Higgins hits the red at the fourth time of asking after gifting Selby 12 points. 29-29 at the moment.
