I'll just remember him by his snooker in his heyday, more than anything else.

Others that came near him for showmanship were Ronny O'Sullivan and Jimmy White...the rest were just played too slow to watch, just plain boring.

The way he ended up...weakened by throat cancer was scarey





I'm glad I only dabbled with cigarettes for a short time in my youth if THIS is how you would end up.

The Hurricane that I remember who was World snooker champion in 1972
(at his first attempt) and again in1982.



He earned 3 million in winnings but squandered it all. He died alone in sheltered accommodation in the Sandy Row area of Belfast, the area where he was born.

There are 4 stars in snooker today who will cry crocodile tears over his passing. These are the 4 players that the Hurricane had said took bribes in the past to "throw" snooker matches. These 4 will breathe a sigh of relief.

Higgins did not give the names to the press as far as I know. But, I am sure he must have confided in someone.
