Tuesday 19th - Sunday 24th of March at Venue Cymru, Llandudno, North Wales

The 4 players through to the Semi Finals are the top 4 players of the season and 3 of them were involved in titanic tussle while Ronnie O'Sullivan had a easy passage but a flattering scoreline with many close frames going against Stuart Bingham.

Mark Allen will take on Neil Robertson for the 3rd time this season having beaten the Aussie in the last 5 encounters Dating back to January 2017. Neil Robertson hasent beaten Mark Allen since the Welsh Open semi final in 2016.

The other semi final sees Judd Trump lock horns with Ronnie O'Sullivan for the 3rd time this season and all in a 2 session match having beaten Ronnie O'Sullivan 9-7 in Northern Ireland to pick up the Alex Higgins trophy and then at the Masters where he took home the Paul Hunter Trophy with a comprihensive 10-4 Victory over the 5 times World Champion O'Sullivan.

Who will reach the final in Llandudno?

DRAW

Semi Finals
Mark Allen v Neil Robertson Robertson leads 14-11
----------------------------------------
Judd Trump v Ronnie O'Sullivan Tied at 12-12

Expect Robbo to win this time.

As for the other semi... toss of a coin... last 2 matches tell us Judd has an advantage so we shall see.

Also the 4 form players of the season, just like the Player Champs semis line-up, but different matches.

These 4 players have been head and shoulders above the rest.

This is Ronnie's 8th semi-final in 10 events this season. He won 6 of the previous 7, with the only loss being the one to Mark Davis at the English Open.

He deserves to be World no 1 but he will need to win this week to get there.


With him missing from the China Open it gives Selby opertunity to reclaim it If Ronnie wins this week and Selby wins in China Selby would be back at no 1 about 80,000 in front.

after the no 1 possition being in the hands of Selby for so long if Ronnie doesent win the WC then it will proberbly change hands a lot next season

Ronnie's all-round game in that first session against Bingham was incredible. I watched it again last night. Every aspect firing.


More of that please! <crosses fingers>

In the second session last night the balls just ran weird. Neither player able to play.

Why would he do that? He's not playing Higgins.

He did not play that well in the match against Bingham he was just picking off Bingham's missed pots this will state the obvious but you cant miss when your in against anyone but against Ronnie its x10 he cueball is sublimme most of the time so if hes in 9.99% of the time he wins the frame.
