Judd Trump is nothing like Donald Trump at all.

Wilson to win the title.

Me too, we're perfectly aware Donald and Judd aren't the same.

Glad O'Brien has avoided the whitewash although remains 8-1 down against Selby.

I expected Maguire to beat McGill and he could as he is 7-2 up against him.

O'Sullivan never learns to keep his opinions to himself when he is interviewed.

A real thriller tonight between Fu and Brecel. A great comeback from Marco.

8-6 now to Rory McLeod against the favourite, Judd Trump. A massive upset potentially.

And it is a major upset with McLeod winning 10-8 over Trump in a unscheduled third session.

Trump faces a fine for not talking to the media in his post-match against McLeod.

He's got bags of talent does Judd Trump. But he does play some very unnecessary shots at a crucial point.

Very true. They can be great shots when they work, but damaging when they don't.

He's still only 27, Trump. Although he still almost has that stigma to just play ridiculous shots when it's not needed.

John Higgins first person through to the semis with a 13-6 win over Kyren Wilson. I think he has a great chance of winning the title would be good to see John win it again.

Semi-Final Draw

Mark Selby v Ding Junhui
John Higgins v Barry Hawkins


I'll be surprised if Hawkins beat Higgins in the semis.

Neither Hawkins nor Higgins have played particularly well in their semi so far.

Ding and Selby however, what a third session that was. 12-12 going into the final session. Ding's 13th century at the World Championship.

8-4 currently to John Higgins. Selby still looks tired following his match with Ding.
