World Championship Higgins leads 2-0

Finals Higgins leads 3-1
It's the Final of the World Snooker Championship, which will see a repeat of the 2011 edition between John Higgins and Judd Trump. Back then Trump was on a high, having just won the China Open before losing 18-15 to John Higgins.
Higgins made one of his trademark comebacks in the Semi-Finals, beating David Gilbert in a final frame decider, whilst Trump had no problems in dispatching Gary Wilson 17-11.
Trump has had his most consistent season to date, winning 3 tournaments, 2 ranking events plus the Masters, whilst Higgins threattened to retire after the UK Championship following poor performances, but a change of practice routine, now practising with fellow scots Maguire and McGill, has found his love for the game again, and once again into the Final, his 3rd consecutive one.
Will it be 3rd time lucky for Higgins or will Trump manage to beat his nemesis and rival John Higgins in the biggest stage of all? Remember Trump has only beaten him once in a match longer than Best of 7, a Best of 9 match. It shall prove harder than 2011 because he now has many battle scars. Can he do it and win it for the first time, or will Higgins claim his 5th title from 8 Finals and equal Ronnie O'Sullivan on 5?
Sit back and enjoy the final match of the season!!!
