At the professionals tournament in Birmingham, the Welshman beat the Irishman 5-2. Reardon took control of the match by taking the first three frames in less than an hour. Higgins came back to make it 3-2 but Reardon stretched away again. Dennis Taylor beat David Taylor 5-1 but afterwards David said: "We both played some scrappy snooker." >>>>>
