WORLD snooker chiefs are to probe a controversial incident involving Mark Selby and Mark Williams in the Shanghai Open final.
Williams led the best-of-19-frames match 9-7 and was 48-5 ahead in the 17th frame, closing in on victory.
The Welsh potter was convinced Selby fouled in escaping from the snooker, insisting he struck the pink.
But referee Eirian Williams determined the English cueman had flicked a red first.
Williams went on to lose the frame and match and said afterwards: “I was robbed. The referee made such an appalling decision.
“It was plain to see he hit the pink. We should get Stevie Wonder to referee next time.”
