Mark Williams is looking good, he's through to the semi-finals of the World Championship.

He finally demolished Ali Carter by 13 frames to 8 with a run of frames at the end that Carter was powerless to handle.

Williams has a great record against Hawkins. I think Higgins is the one to beat though.

Higgins looked shattered yesterday - it's a long tournament.

He was fabulous early on mind …

Williams had three attempts at tricky shots and lost three frames as a result.

He looked out of sorts but recovered later on last night.

Williams at 9/6 down. He needs to win the final frame of the day.

Our man fought back to 14 all and then battled his way to victory just before midnight.

Mark Williams reached his 17-15 triumph over Barry Hawkins with a mixture of genius and addled brain shots.

Both he and Hawkins were sat laughing between frames in the last tense 2 or 3 efforts as both men missed shot after shot to clinch frames.

Then the nerves finally settled for Williams for his last two shots.

A superb long pink to the top left hand corner was followed by a shot with the rest that Mark thought he'd missed - the black dropping gently into the yellow corner pocket despite the trembles from Mark and he's only gone and done it …..

I couldn't get to sleep for a couple of hours after the tension so lord only knows how Mark is going to be feeling this afternoon.... the final at the Crucible starts at 14:00 BST and is expected to end on Monday night, perhaps ....

Higgins, 42, or Williams, 43, will be the oldest winner since Ray Reardon, who was 45 when he triumphed in 1978.

I thing Higgins is definitely a strong favourite but you never quite know in this game.

Whatever happens in the final Williams has had a wonderful tournament. I think Higgins will be too strong in the final though. A good start though with Williams 5-3 up.

They've been up and down like a bride's nighty!!

Mark is now 3 frames in front and this first day ended with century after century, exceptional stuff.

Second session:

Higgins scores first :-

46-81 (72), (51) 75-31, (127) 127-8, 12-76, (56)
85-9, (117) 123-15, 0-123 (118), 35-64 (64), 43-80

Williams did not have century after century on the first day of the final he had one century.

Williams thoroughly deserved to win, he made all the running.

not sure if he still does but he used to practise in Bargoed snooker Club, you always knew when he was there when there was a Ferrari parked in the car park and there aren't that many Ferraris in Bargoed :kermit:
