How could he ruin his legacy by doing something like this? He earns enough money. What a blow to the sport to have one of its greatest players ever involved in something like this.
Not to mention a board member... You'd think he has enough money, especially since it didn't seem like there would have been some threats made to the family (as I think the case with Davydenko might have been).
Though at its heart, match fixing is about money laundering.
As someone who's liked Higgins I'm disappointed. I've always enjoyed listening to his Scottish accent, not to mention his great play.
