Higginson Claims Week Three of Snooker Legends 900…

FORMER PROFESSIONAL Andrew Higginson claimed the title in the third week of this new and exciting event for amateur snooker in Reading that is taking the UK and the wider world by storm.

According to Snooker Legends, since the event has been showcased LIVE on TV and online on Sporty Stuff, many more amateurs have expressed interest in wanting to play in the innovative event.

There has even been talking doing the rounds about spin-off events for juniors and women.

After weeks one and two were claimed by Andrew Norman and Jersey’s Aaron Canavan, Higginson, formerly 18th in the World on the World Professional Tour, sunk the balls on Wednesday night to put himself into the Grand Finals in November.

In the earlier rounds on Tuesday, Matt Ford, whom SnookerZone has interviewed before, came through and hailed the win on all the practice with the Cuestars Academy run by John Hunter which has loads of great practice routines for players of all abilities and ages.

Higginson was the market leader at 5/2 to take this week’s final, while eight times Northern Ireland Amateur Champion Patrick Wallace was next in at 4/1 with Day 2 winner Matt Ford on offer at 5/1.

The show is presented by Rachel Casey, who is joined in the studio by Neal Foulds and Lee Richardson, and betting on a wide range of markets and outcomes is available with partner bookmakers now.

In all, the 900 Snooker Legends will see 25 sessions of snooker broadcast Monday to Wednesday every night at 10pm with £6,000 per week in prize money – the eight weekly winners will then contest the £10,000 to the winner Grand Final on 16 November in a one-off special.
