Luke Littler or Jose de Sousa? Which 120 checkout was more special? Have your say!

In Thursday evening’s opening quarter-final in Sheffield, Littler guaranteed top spot in this year’s Premier League with a battling 6-4 success against Peter Wright, conjuring up an outrageous 120 checkout on his way to victory.

“He’s not… he’s not… Oh my word! Breath-taking… what a talent! What a shot!,” screamed commentator Stuart Pyke as ‘The Nuke’ struck three double tops for one of the greatest finishes of all time.

Littler joined Phil Taylor, Michael van Gerwen and Glen Durrant in topping the league phase on debut, and his 40-point haul matched Jonny Clayton’s tally from the 2022 season.

Littler’s 120 finish was reminiscent of De Sousa’s tops, tops, tops, finish against Nathan Aspinall at the Marshall Arena on Night 16 of the 2021 Premier League.

Wayne Mardle lost his voice after commentating on some incredible showboating from ‘The Special One’.

“He’s not… he’s not…oh, he’s not! Oh, stop it! Oh, oh… stop it! Stop it, right now. That is… I’ve gone, I’ve gone.”
