I watched the first mini session and the final frame. Kyren played rubbish in the beginning, missing a lot of easy balls. Rod made a 77 break to go 2-1 up and then fluked the opening red in the next one, just to make a 90 and get a 3-1 lead.
At 4-5, Wilson was on a break of 56 when he fluked a red ball but missed position (blaming a kick for that). After a brief tactical battle, Kyren left an easy red to the middle giving Rod the chance to score 49 points (with 25 remaining). Kyren made one more mistake to leave the green, but Lawler needed to pot the blue from some distance to win the frame. He did, so he won.
From what I saw, Wilson played badly, but Lawler deserves a credit. He played some solid stuff and had many cracking long pots. I had forgotten that he is a player with attacking approach on his game, although he is (very) slow.
