    Alexander "Alex" Gordon Higgins (born 18 March 1949), also known by his nickname of Hurricane Higgins, was a Northern Irish professional snooker player who was twice World Champion and twice runner-up. Higgins earned the nickname The Hurricane because of his speed of play.
    Higgins was also a former World Doubles Champion with Jimmy White and won the World Cup three times with the All Ireland team.
    He is often credited with the bringing the game of snooker to a wider audience and contributing to its peak in popularity in the eighties.
    Higgins had a reputation as an unpredictable and difficult character. He was a heavy smoker and alcoholic and obsessive gambler who admitted to using cocaine and marijuana. He was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998


    He died 24 July 2010.​
