Mark Allen set up a final showdown with Judd Trump as he overcame John Higgins 6-2 in the semi-final of the Cazoo Champion of Champions.
Seeking his first title since January’s World Grand Prix, Allen pulled away from 2-2 to take the last four frames in Bolton. It promises to be an exciting best-of-19 final on Sunday against World Number 2 Trump, with the winner scooping this year’s prize of £150,000.
Northern Ireland’s Allen, who won this title in 2020, said: “I’m excited to be playing Judd, he’s the best in the world at the moment but I have a good record against him.
“I am going to enjoy it, I didn’t come her to finish second, and I will have to play really well to beat Judd, but I know I can beat him – and so does he.
“If you had told me three or four weeks ago I’d be in this position I would have laughed because I was in a bad place, but I have been working hard on the right things and my confidence has come back.”
Allen made breaks of 73 and 91 before the interval tonight, while Higgins knocked in 65 and 68. But world number four Allen then dominated, firing runs of 102 and 77 as he swept to victory.
