Unseen show by Luca Brecel: “The Belgian Bullet” Pot … – Nach Welt
Luca Brecel took his Palmares a second place on Sunday in Llandudno, Welsh. In the final of the Scottish Open, the 26-year-old Limburger won 9-5 against the Scottish John Higgins, who was twenty years his senior. And his very last ball went viral when he blinded it.

It was the fourth ranking final for Brecel. In 2017 he won the China Championship. In 2016 he was runner-up in the German Masters and last week in the UK Championship. Four-time world champion Higgins won the Scottish Open in 1995 and 1996 and lost the final in 1998 and 2016. “The Wizard of Wishaw” has 31 ranked tournaments in its name. Only Ronnie O’Sullivan, 37, and Stephen Hendry, 36, do better.
In addition to the Stephen Hendry Trophy, Brecel was presented with a check for 70,000 pounds (82,000 euros). For Higgins it was £ 30,000. In the Order of Merit, Brecel rises from eighteenth to fifteenth place. His highest ranking so far is 11th place in late 2017 and early 2018. Higgins climbed from seventh to sixth place. World Champion Mark Selby remains number one ahead of Judd Trump and Ronnie O’Sullivan.
The World Grand Prix starts on Monday in Coventry, England. There Brecel meets Northern Irishman Jordan Brown (WS-28) in the first round.
