Monday 6th of February ~ Sunday 12th of February at the Preston Guild Hall

Semi Finals consists of 4 players that aren't serial ranking event winners with Marco Fu winner of 3 ranking events the most experienced at the latter stages of tournaments.

Ryan Day who has been runner up in 3 ranking events the last time 9 years ago is hoping he will follow in the footsteps of Mark King and Anthony Hamilton and pick up his maiden win.

Who will reach the final?

I think the best possible outcomes for the Final would be, firstly, Fu v Hawkins, and then maybe Liang v Fu.

I want Day to win this title and follow Ants and King's footsteps.

Unless Marco's level drops I can't see Ryan beating him.

I guess Barry's the favourite in the other final but you really never know with him.

Still want Fu to win this tournament. The way he's played the last few months he's been so good to watch. Probably been the most exciting player, putting my Ronnie bias to one side.

I agree with Iranu, since the UK Champs and especially since his Scottish Open win Fu has been the most exciting player to watch as he's on great form. A minor blip at the German Masters, but since the UK he's been in the form of his life.

But right now focusing on this one.. want Barry to win.

He's full of cliches. he comes across as someone in his commentary who is always desperatly trying to create an Hollywood film, and to no surprise since them are also full of clichés...

I actually feel like the content of Yates' commentary, which is generally decent, is overshadowed by the fact that he acts as though what he's saying is the most important sentence in the history of mankind.

"Barry Hawkins hold the professional record for most knuckles hit by an object ball in a single shot - 9. The shot came in the 2012 Australian Snooker Open, and it proved a costly miss; Tom Ford cleared up, relinquishing Hawkins of his title." - Phil Yates.
