SF1: Brian Cox 5-2 Kyren Wilson
England international Brian Cox reached the final of The Snooker TV Masters thanks to an impressive 5-2 defeat of tournament favourite Kyren Wilson.
Cox narrowly won the first frame and then took an early lead in the second thanks to a good run of 24. A 29 break from Wilson put him right back in it but Cox finished strongly, potting yellow to pink to secure a 2-0 lead.
Wilson reminded Cox what he is capable of in the third frame. A sublime 74 break followed by a 46 clearance reduced the arrears to one frame.
Cox then produced more solid match play to win the next two frames and leave himself just one frame from victory. Yet again though, Wilson sprung into life as he made a fantastic 128 total clearance in frame six. Wilson will pocket the £100 high break prize if nobody beats it.
A very tactical seventh frame went right down to the black and Wilson was eventually left with a great chance to reduce the arrears to one frame but a surprise miss allowed Cox in to pot the black for frame and match.
Cox will meet either Bash Maqsood or Wayne Martin in the final.
