Ronnie O’Sullivan staged a comeback to keep his grasp on the name he’s won the last two years for each.
O’Sullivan looked out and down from the quarter-finals when he fell 5-1 behind against Kyren Wilson, who peaked in the frame with a 131 break.
However he kept himself alive with a 102 to narrow the deficit, and finished his comeback after Wilson had squandered a good chance to win the game.
O’Sullivan will accept Australian Neil Robertson, for whom a 115 fracture was a highlight at a 6-2 win on Barry Hawkins.
World champion Judd Trump watched his streak come to an end because Mark Allen thrashed him.
Allen racked up five breaks over 50 at a detailed win that coped Trump – who had claimed that the International Championship name – his first reduction since early April.
Trump had rebounded in the fourth framework with a break of 102 but it was not enough to upset the Northern Irishman, who is currently exhibiting some of the very best form of his career’s sins.
In the four Allen will confront as he breezed from precisely exactly the exact same score, Shaun Murphy, who continued his own fine early season form.
