Final (£50 / £25)

Dave Jobling (14) 3-2 Nav Hussain (0)

Nav won a cagey opening frame before Dave levelled the match with the help of a classy 53 break. Nav then restored his lead with runs of 43 and 26 only to see Dave force a decider aided by a knock of 34.

The deciding frame was quality, Dave opening up a 34 point lead before Nav made a fantastic 55 break. Nav looked odds on to clear the table but he narrowly missed the final red using the rest to give Dave a lifeline.

Dave potted red and black to reduce Nav’s lead to just 13 points and he then went on to clear all of the colours in magnificent fashion under real pressure to secure the victory.
