The ‘Belgian Bullet’ got off to a solid start, and in no time came 3-0 with a break 96, among other things. After a tire for Higgins, he made it 4-1 with a break of 69. Then it seemed like Higgins was back to score 4-2, and he put the tire ball in as well, but what also horrified him he saw the black disappear into the pocket. Prisil made good use of his opponent’s bad luck. The next game went to Higgins thanks to a 70’s break, but another century into the 104th Bresel was able to enter the break with a comfortable lead.

The final continued into the top 17 games at 20:00 (Belgian time). Briselle immediately showed that he was still in great shape and put pressure on Higgins thanks to this stage, among other things:

Brecel quickly went to victory in the first two frames of the second session in Scotland. Higgins didn’t give up and took a tire back from Brecel, who needed one extra tire to win the championship. Brecel immediately had a chance to finish in the twelfth frame, but he missed the green with seventeen points in his pocket. Higgins didn’t miss the chance and grabbed the frame with a 4-8 score.

Even after the break, Higgins did not give up: the Scot continued to fight after a difficult tire to 5-8. Higgins wanted to move on, but Brecel found the decisive hole and finished it for the decisive 5-9 with a century break.

This is Pricel’s fourth final standings and his second win. In 2017, he won the China Championship. He was runner-up in 2016 in the German Masters and last week in the UK Championships. Four-time world champion Higgins won the Scottish Open in 1995 and 1996, and lost the final in 1998 and 2016. In total, “The Wizard of Wishaw” has 31 ranking tournaments to its name. Only Ronnie O’Sullivan (37) and Stephen Hendry (36) excel.

The winner of the tournament will receive 70,000 pounds (82,000 euros), compared to 30,000 pounds (35,000 euros) for the losing winner. Brecel rises to 15th place on the Order of Merit. His highest ranking to date was 11th, in late 2017 and early 2018. Higgins climbed to sixth in the world rankings anyway. World Champion Mark Selby remains in pole position, ahead of Judd Trump and Ronnie O’Sullivan.
