End of break
Sun, Mar 2nd 2008, 21:50 by Reporter
John Higgins moved all-in under the gun and was called by Colin Wu on his immediate left. It was folded around to John Lynch who deliberated before folding J J face up. Higgins found himself in a tight snooker with K T against Wu’s A K and a flop of Q 5 A left him needing one of the two remaining jacks to escape. Turn 6 and river 8 were bricks and Higgins exited the tournament in 10th place, picking up £1,500.

John Higgins raised on the button and big blind Mark Greenwood moved all-in for another 30k. Higgins made the call with 3 3 and was pleased to find Greenwood with A K. However, the first card out was K and the remaining cards 9 Q T A were too high to help Higgins. Greenwood gets his second double-up in quick succession and is now a force in this tournament.

In a battle of the blinds, John Higgins raised 8k and Karen Wilson called. Both checked a 5 J 9 flop. Higgins bet 15k when Q turned and Wilson called before Higgins could even count out his chips. Despite Wilson’s apparent confidence, Higgins moved all-in for 38.5k when 8 hit the river. Wilson gave the matter considerable thought before folding.
Higgins v Loader II
Sun, Mar 2nd 2008, 17:11 by Reporter
John Higgins raises under the gun to 7000. Karen Wilson calls and Nick Loader moves all in for 39500. Higgins is an unlikely candidate to be raising light UTG and sure enough he has a hand big enough to move in himself. Karen Wilson folds and we see the hands.
John Higgins all in

Nick Loader raises to 8000 from the cut off and John Higgins moves all in for another 19000 from the big blind.
A good opening break for Higgins
Sun, Mar 2nd 2008, 15:25 by Reporter
We were pleased to see our prediction that short-stacked John Higgins might not return for the final day’s action was wrong. He moved all-in on the button with 6 5 and was called by Neil Stewart on the big blind with K Q. A flop of 3 A J brought draws for both players but Higgins hit his first when 4 landed on the turn. The meaningless river was K and Higgins got a much-needed early double-up.
Higgins crushed on last hand of the day

On the last hand of the day John Higgins’ A Q makes top pair but is cruelly outdrawn by Michael McCool’s 8 10 which makes the flush. Higgins’ stack is so small he may well not bother coming back for day 2.
Hendry out, Higgins still going strong

Paul Hendry pushed his last chips in pre-flop with 8 9 and was called by Phil Starrs holding Q Q There was some hope for Hendry as A 5 7 and 7 appeared but the 8 on the river was no good for Hendry and he is eliminated.
Meanwhile John Higgins has been steadily going about business and has around 44,000.
