About this programme
Mark Allen v Ricky Walden. Coverage of the opening session of the second semi-final at the Barbican Centre in York, where eight frames are scheduled to take place. Allen, who defeated Marco Fu in the last round, will be hoping to go one better than last year when he lost out to John Higgins at this stage. His opponent failed to make it past the first round of last year's event, and will hope to continue the form he showed when beating Shaun Murphy 6-3 in the quarter-finals.
