Grind out

As the second semi-final has come to an end, here are our Crucible finalists

Judd Trump – secured his place in the final after an 105 break, to defeat Ding Junhui 17-15. Trump, 21, became the second youngest Crucible finalist – behind Stephen Hendry – as he ended Chinese dreams in Sheffield.

John Higgins – won the second semi-final against Mark Williams 17-14. Although the game was balanced, again John was as lucky as they get, even after a spectator started to make remarks about what he did with 300.000 Euro, only managing to get himself thrown out. John Higgins won the World Championship three times in 1998, 2007, and 2009

This is the trophy they will be competing for

As far as i am concerned the only miracle is not that the light shows up every year but that the lighter never runs out of gas..
