Jimmy White admitted he was no match for Stephen Maguire after he lost 9-3 to the Glaswegian in the final of the European Open in Malta.
Jimmy White could only claim three frames
White never recovered after going 7-1 down after the first session but afterwards he was dignified in defeat.
"Stephen outplayed me in safety, potting and position so he deserved to win," said White.
"He gave me a good bashing. I'm pleased for him because he's a nice lad but I'm disappointed because I didn't compete."
