Jimmy White's miserable season has gone from bad to worse at Pontin's in Prestatyn today after he was beaten 5-3 from 3-1 up by Andrew Higginson in the third qualifying round of the Malta Cup.

White failed to reach the final stages of the Northern Ireland Trophy and Royal London Watches Grand Prix earlier this season and has slipped to 51st in the provisional rankings.

He stated before the start of the season that his aim was to return to the elite top 16. If he drops just 14 more places he will be off the tour.

I cannot believe White is probably within one tournament of being provisionally off the tour next season.

I take it the qualifying for the UK Championship is next up for White, and how important could that be.

I have a horrible suspicion that the Masters could be White's last appearance on national TV...But I hope not!

Thanks, Joe
