Semi-Final 1: Thepchaiya Un-Nooh v David Gilbert
So now it's down to 4 players left in the tournament and the business end of it, and our first Semi-Final is one that most likely most couldn't have predicted at the start of the week. Thailand's Thepchaiya-Nooh managed to beat favourite Mark Allen in the previous round, whilst David Gilbert also managed to surprise with a win over Marco Fu, both players having won their respective matches 6-5.
They have only met once in professional play, and that was a Q School event which Gilbert won, so this is effectively their first proper meeting. Both will be very nervous as expected, but who shall manage that better and earn their first ranking event Final?
