Ronnie O’Sullivan staged a remarkable comeback to maintain his grasp on the title he has won the last two years for each.
O’Sullivan looked out and down from the quarter-finals when he fell 5-1 supporting against Kyren Wilson, who peaked in the second frame with a 131 fracture.
However he finished his comeback with a break of 60 in the decider after Wilson had squandered a good chance to win the match, and kept himself living using a 102 to narrow down the deficit.
O’Sullivan will take on Australian Neil Robertson, for whom there was a 115 fracture a highlight at a win over Barry Hawkins.
World champion Judd Trump saw his winning streak come to a conclusion because he had been thrashed by Mark Allen.
Allen racked up five fractures over 50 in a comprehensive win which dealt Trump – who had claimed that the International Championship name – his first loss since April.
Trump had rebounded with a fracture of 102 but it was not sufficient to upset the sins of the Northern Irishman, who’s currently exhibiting some of the best form of his profession.
In the last four Allen will confront Shaun Murphy, who lasted his very own fine early season form as he breezed by the score.
