Monday 20th ~ Sunday 26th of November at The Waterfront Hall, Belfast

When Steve Davis played Ding Junhui in the final of the 2005 UK Championship there was 30 years age gap and when Stephen Hendry played Doug Mountjoy in the final of the 1988 UK Championship there was a 27 year age gap.

This years Northern Ireland Open final will have a 25 year age gap as Yan Bingtao will be aiming to change the record books and become the youngest winner of a ranking title and first teenager since Ding Junhui in 2005.

Can Mark Williams stop him?

Most here rooting for Bingtao I see.

Yes great talent no doubt, but he has plenty of time on his side, MJW doesn't. So, much like what Higgins and Ronnie are doing atm, I hope MJW wins at least one final ranking event title. A player of the same class as those 2 deserves at least 1 more and not his last being in 2011.

If Bingtao does win though, he'll have the record for himself so fair play on him.

But tomorrow I hope MJW plays and beats him.

Hope the final goes ahead otherwise the achievement of being the youngest winner of a ranker will feel flat.

If you're going to drop out surely it would have been last night so you can get home as soon as possible.

I do agree if he was going to pull out, might as well done it y3sterday.

I think he'll play and even be inspired by it, so dont be surprised if we see vintage MJW today.

I thought that.

What new information will he have today, that he didn't already have?

I mean we don't know the full details so it's easy for us to simplify from a distance. Crowd will probably be massively behind MJW today.

He the youngest ever winner currently?

Took me a minute to work out what Ronnie had got to do with anything.

I thought you meant Ronnie was his wife. rofl
