John Higgins crushed Ronnie O'Sullivan in a ranking event for the first time in 23 years to reach the semi-finals of the Scottish Open.
The Scot rattled in three consecutive century breaks - 109, 117 and 105 - to open up a 4-0 interval lead.
Meanwhile, O'Sullivan also known as 'The Rocket', who has won three ranking titles recently, rallied briefly but a 72 break from Higgins sealed a 5-0 win.
O'Sullivan, who has won the English Open, Shanghai Masters and UK Championship in the last two months, praised his opponent.
He said, "John's a class act; an amazing player, unbelievable. He's got touch, skill, power - he's got everything. If you were going to build a snooker player, you would build John.
"He played fantastically well. No excuses, I was here to try to win the tournament, it just didn't work out. But I am kind of relieved I don't have to come back and play another match.
"I am looking forward to getting home and not having to pack my suitcase. I just need a break and hopefully I will come back rejuvenated for the Masters in January."
