Police question snooker players over match-fixing

Police question snooker players over match-fixing

Scottish police are holding snooker players Stephen Maguire and Jamie Burnett for questioning over suspicions that they fixed a match last year.
Snooker's world governing body started looking into the U.K. Championship match in December following heavy betting predicting the 9-3 score and Strathclyde police opened its own investigation in April.
Maguire won by the predicted margin after his fellow Scot missed a routine black in the 12th frame that would have made the score 8-4.
Both players have denied wrongdoing.
