Brecel breaks four-year drought

Posted on

Belgium's Luca Brecel beat Scot John Higgins 9-5 to win snooker's Scottish Open and lift the Stephen Hendry Trophy.

Brecel, who lost the UK Championship final the previous week, had not won a ranking event for four years (since the 2017 China Championship).

The event was held in Llandudno, Wales after a contractual issue forced the event to be moved from its planned venue in Glasgow, Scotland.
