A Hurricane finish

The Alex Higgins International Trophy has been one of the most exciting PTCs of the season.

Down to the quarter-final and there's still six top 16 players fighting for the title along with PTC3 winner Ben Woollaston and Scotland's Alan McManus.

Even though the event has been poorly attended, the action on the table has been as good as ever.

It's hard to pick who will win the trophy from here, although multiple PTC winners Judd Trump and Mark Selby have as big a shout as anyone.

Neil Robertson has found his feet in the series this season and John Higgins will be fighting until the very end.

Then there's Stuart Bingham and Mark Allen. The prospect of those two meeting in the final appeals after the public spat they had earlier this season.

Allen would be a particularly fitting winner as Northern Ireland's number one and the best player to come out of the country since Dennis Taylor and the Hurricane himself.
