JOHN HIGGINS became the latest big-name casualty at the Snooker Champion of Champions as he joined world champ Stuart Bingham and Judd Trump in crashing out at the group stage.
The Wishaw Wizard lost a final-frame shootout to Joe Perry, who marches on to the semis, and today Group 2 takes centre stage.
The winner of that clash will then face whoever comes out on top between Shaun Murphy and Yan Bingtao. Murphy has yet to win a match at this event after two attempts but following his triple crown heroics last term he’ll be confident of breaking his duck.
At the Grand Slam of Darts there was misery for Flying Scotsman Gary Anderson who was sent packing by Mark Webster and today Michael van Gerwen and Dave Chisnall are among the names in action.
Elsewhere today there’s also the likes of cricket and Stateside action so don’t forget to head to the forums where you can share tips and chat on your favoured sport.
