After losing seven frames in a row, John Higgins came out and potted 15 reds and 14 blacks, including an outrageous double, to kick things off with a bang in the World Championship final at the Crucible.
Judd Trump took a 12-5 lead into today's proceedings after a superb showing on Sunday. However, Higgins roared back in style with a superb start only to miss on the black as it rocked against the pocket.
It finished in a 110 break in the opening frame of the day.
Unfortunately, not to be ?

Higgins is looking history and his fifth title in the final after finishing runner-up in the last two. His luck seemed in from the start.
