Rocket Ronnie is in the final
Ronnie O'Sullivan beat Stuart Bingham by 6-5 after being led 4-1, in order to book a very comfortable seat in tomorrow's final.

It was bumpy ride for the five-time world champion to prevail the semi-final against Bingham and the lads took their time into teasing the audience consuming all the 11 frames in a superb battle of cues, but in the end the Rocket landed safely in the grand final.

From the very start of the match, Stuart looked as sharp as ever, breaks of 66 and 49 throwing him at 2-0 up, while O'Sullivan barely managed to win a frame with a top break of 44 after numerous misses.

Bingham lost focus
Another beautiful set of breaks (73 and 137) were putting Stuart at 4-1 up, but the Englishman seemed a bit too excited about his run of the ball and started making huge mistakes in the following frames.

A relatively easy red, during frame six, and a long red, in frame seven, sufficed to let Ronnie in and get a bit of time table, after being grounded to stay in his seat for the first half of the match.

Runs of 62 and 68 marked his comeback into the match, a comeback that didn't stop not even after Stuart won the 9th frame to go one away from victory, at 5-4.

Happy bunny

O'Sullivan made a beautiful 117 clearance to force the decider which was won with another great exhibition of snooker under the form of a 94 break.

Just after the match the Rocket confessed that for the first part of the snooker show he didn't settle and was looking at Bingham potting one ball after another, thinking in how many tournaments he's played in and about the fact that he has such a great run of the ball, while him isn't at his best.

However, everything changed after the interval and Ronnie decided to make a run for it. The result couldn't have turned out better for him.
