Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins passes away

Recommended Posts

JOSEPH X

Probably the most recognisable icon of the game of snooker has died at the age of 61 after losing his battle with throat cancer.

 

Source

 

More than anyone else he popularised the game with the masses in the 70's and early 80's with the tempo of his game and his audacious shot-making.

 

He was the game's first anti-hero, genius and man of the people. Rest in peace Alex.

RIP

He was a bit before my time but i knew of him. To snooker fans this will be a huge loss as he is one of the biggest stars of the game ever.

It's a sad day for snooker. May the man keep rocking.

Ironic that you mention his screw shots and there's Jimmy White in that video who's tremendous at spinning the cue ball.

 

I don't know much of past Snooker players, but Rest In Peace.
