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!
