Prince of Poland! Again!!

NEIL ROBERTSON has triumphed in EPTC2 in Gdynia, in Poland. Last year, NEIL won EPTC3 which was held in Warsaw, Poland's capital, so he has viewed this as a SUCCESSFUL defence of his Polish Title.

NEIL won 4-3 over JAMIE JONES, in the Round of 32, making 1 Century. In the Round of 16, NEIL defeated MARTIN GOULD 4-3 after making 2 Centuries!

In the Quarter-Final, he triumphed 4-0 over TIAN PENGFEI, and then defeated STEPHEN MAGUIRE 4-2, in the Semi-Final, making another Century.

In a gripping Final, NEIL made another Century to lead 3-0, however, JAMIE BURNETT was not to be denied and fought back to 3-3. JAMIE needed to make a clearance from 38 behind to snatch the Final frame on the black, however, when he missed a colour after the second-last red, NEIL cooly potted the balls required to ensure a famous victory!

NEIL has now been successful in 10 Televised Finals (out of 11 contested).

Shanghai Masters 2012

JUDD TRUMP and JOHN HIGGINS have produced the most amazing Final for this year's Shanghai Masters! JUDD came out "blazing" and lead 5-0. JOHN, with a new cue this Season, produced a 147 to win his first frame! JUDD immediately bounced back, and lead 7-2 when they took the break before the evening session.

In the evening, JOHN played flawlessly to rattle in breaks and lead 8-7. JUDD was not to be denied and fought back to 9-9! When JUDD failed to obtain position on the black, in with 36, in the last, he was forced to play safe. JOHN HIGGINS slammed in a "do or die" long red, and produced a 61 break which was able to seal his win!
