Ronnie O’Sullivan and Preston played in final at GP 2005 but there was no excepted controversy. It is a fact that Higgins is a good player and has won by playing very successful frames in the final. Higgins played well, but we couldn’t say the same thing for Ronnie O’Sullivan. Ronnie O’Sullivan played with a poor percentage of a Long pot and he didn’t concentrate during the match. In his safety shots, he shot frivolous shots. Higgins was in a good mood, so he won an easy victory by passing 100 break points in 4 frames.
