Why do so many people dislike John Higgins?
He knocked the coke boy out.
I like Higgings, I wish him the best of luck.

Higgins may be a great player, however once a cheat, always a cheat.
Not really a role model for snooker.

I dont think Chinese players should be allowed to participate in snooker because it is their country which caused covid.Banning them should be one of many consequences for what China has done. Removed

Why is Higgins even allowed anywhere near a snooker table? Convicted cheat and gambler.
Because he is much better than you at Snooker and is not a Pussy like you and your name Removed

Hope the young lad Bingtao wins. Such bottle.

Higgins (who should never have been allowed back in the game) looks like he's about to burst!
I would dearly like to prick him with a pin when he's struggling to reach a long shot......he's under a lot of pressure, and I'm not talking about the shot! Removed

Thx CT. Tell us which match was actually fixed??? Read the actual FACTS of that case, then apologise. World Snooker dealt with it many years ago, but YOU know best???
One of these players is a match fixer and a cheat.
Good luck to the one who isn't.

So pleased Higgins got beat. I think he is a cheat. He should have been thrown out the sport. In my view. He took snookers reputation to the gutter. The governing body were very weak. I don't care what he does. His (achievements) are tarnished. Removed
Bet Higgins earned more than Yan from his commissions after throwing it. Wizard of Wishaw? Warlock of William Hill more like! Removed

The match fixer Higgins should never have been allowed to play professional snooker again.
Anything he "achieves" now is irrelevant.
He never fixed any match, in fact the match didnt even take place. You must be a fan of the player that served a drugs ban, assaulted an official, walked out in the middle of a match because he was getting spanked, sexually harassed a female reporter and called lesser players numpties. Removed
Higgins Kung Flu was not as strong as his opponents :-) Removed
Hooooooooorayyyyyy The Cheat got beat .Couldn't fix this one could you Removed

Has to be good for the game that (it wasn't a multi-millionaire player who was secretly filmed agreeing to lose matches for a few thousand pounds) Yan won it.

Don't understand why Higgins is still allowed to compete. Can't be trusted.

Gr££dy.
Thx Baron, nothing like staying informed & up to date (and indeed, you ARE nothing like it!). NO match was fixed in the JH case. Here's a list of cases (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_snooker_players_investigated_for_match-fixing) & a KEY PHRASE keeps appearing "suspicious betting patterns). Players know it's just about impossible to achieve a fix, given the sophisticated bookie processes. Removed

Well done to Yan Bingtao great win for him and an even better result for snooker. Higgins is an odious individual who should have no place in the game.
"Higgins odious"? No knowledge of actual FACTS then?? World Snooker dealt with that case, the actual guilty party was banned for life (& HE had been on that Board back then!!!).

The reason they set up Higgins was that they knew what he was and that he would grab the chance of a few quid , agreeing to do what was asked just for even more money than the millions he had won clearly proves what he is.

Excellent performance? Robertson, Maguire and Bingham all played well below par. Bingtao as good as received a bye straight to the final. Then Higgins played the game of his life to knock out Ronnie. Then surprise, surprise....another below par performance to hand him the trophy. Never in the history of the game has a player been handed a tournament on a plate like Bingtao.
BS Removed
The mass infiltration of Chinese players is a worry for the game. Robotic, no emotion performances are not what snooker fans like to see. You only have to listen to the audiences who shout "Go on Ronnie" to know that we like to see flair, personality and outrageous shots to know what we snooker fans prefer. I can only see BBC audience ratings plummet if the Chinese trend continues. RIP Snooker. Removed
Repetitive racist...change the record Removed
