Judd Trump escaped from the jaws of defeat to beat Barry Hawkins and e-book his place within the semi-final of the Masters.
The 2019 champion trailed Hawkins 5-4 of their best-of-11 last-eight encounter at Alexandra Palace.
But Trump, who earlier matched the very best break of the week with a 143, delivered a clearance of 107 within the tenth body to arrange a decider.
Hawkins was first to get among the many balls, however Trump required only one alternative to take a tense finale with a break of 81, securing his sixth semi-final spot.
The 33-year-old will face both Shaun Murphy or Stuart Bingham for a spot in Sunday’s remaining.
“It was a tremendous atmosphere, and certainly up there with the top three I have ever played in or experienced,” stated Trump, who got here again from 5-3 all the way down to beat Ryan Day in his opening match earlier this week.
“I felt in control at the end, as if I knew I was going to clear up. I made some good breaks from 4-3 down.
“I had to hang in there at the start when I was struggling, but towards the end I felt that if I could get my hand on the table I was going to score heavily.
“It’s a nice feeling to win another close one. It gives me confidence to do that when my back was against the wall.”
