Selby ousts Bingham in semi final that went all the way

It was a semi final that had just about everything, from great break-building and centuries to great tactical play and a final frame decider.

The match was between the top two players in the world, Mark Selby and Stuart Bingham that proved to be a brilliant match between these heavyweights of the game.

It was Mark Selby who got out of the blocks first winning the first frame, but Bingham quickly came back to level things up at 1-1. In the third and fourth frame, Selby shot ahead by taking both of these frames with breaks of 76 and 75 to go 3-1 in front.

This shot Bingham into life as he then went and took the next four frames in a row with some brilliant snooker, making breaks of 67, 123, 72 and 87. It was Selby who took the next couple of frames to level the match up and force the decider with Bingham.

In the final frame of the match, both players appeared nervous as some simple misses were seen early on but it was Selby who took the opportunity first to score heavy. Although he broke down at around 40 points, a miss from Bingham let Selby in to score enough to get over the line.

Selby now awaits the winner of Ding and Maguire which will be played later today.
