The look of exasperation on John Higgins's face said it all at the end of the eighth frame of his match against Ronnie O'Sullivan at the Shanghai Masters.
It was a dramatic frame, one which came down to the black ball. Higgins played the black to where he thought was a safe position on the right cushion.
Barely taking time to think, O'Sullivan played the double into the bottom left pocket. It gave him a 5-2 lead.

Presumably, Higgins had not watched O'Sullivan's match against Mark Williams on Thursday. On a re-spotted, Williams made a similar mistake to Higgins.
Without hesitation, O'Sullivan stepped up to make the pot.
