After a fabulous night’s action - J.Trump finally fell over the line in the end. He seemed to do everything in his power to lose, but scrambled through on the green. We’ve seen over the last few days just what The Crucible can do to you, and despite the buckets it’s amazing what can be missed when the pressure is cranked up a notch.

We’ve now got the last 16 finalised and just think how open this would be had R.O’Sullivan gone out. But, he didn’t and you’d have to think that someone is going to have to play exceptionally well to beat him. He had opportunities to bail out against S.Maguire, but he dug in, and although he was given a lot of help - he is by a long way the man to beat. I’d love The Captain to break his duck against him, but over 25 frames he’ll need to play as well as he’s ever done in his life, and needs to at least stay level during this morning's session.

The action resumes at its usual 10am this morning:


Allen 5-3 Perry (10am and 7pm)
Wilson v Jones (2.30pm)

Higgins v Lisowski
Trump v Walden

-------------------------------------

Ding v McGill
Hawkins 5-3 Haotian (2.30pm)

Williams v Milkins
O’Sullivan v Carter (10am and 7pm)
