Snooker: Defending Champion is Ousted

Defending Masters Champion John Higgins has been eliminated at the first hurdle in this years tournament.

Stephen Maguire, a fellow Scot, has beaten him 6-5 to go through to the quarter-final stage.

Neither player really settled into this match and it was more about the misses than the potting despite a 95 and 116 break by Maguire.

Maguire will now play the very-much-in-form Neil Robertson.
