About this programme
Mark Allen v Ricky Walden. Hazel Irvine introduces coverage of the concluding session of the second semi-final at the Barbican Centre in York, where the first player to win nine frames will progress to the final. This tournament is the second most prestigious ranking event on the calendar, and was won last year by John Higgins, who went home with a cheque for £100,000 and moved up to number one in the standings after beating Mark Williams in a thrilling final. With commentary and analysis by Dennis Taylor, Willie Thorne, Stephen Hendry and John Virgo. Subsequent programmes subject to change.
