" Murphy stuns Trump again
Shaun Murphy once again got the better of world champion Judd Trump as he progressed to the last four with a 5-3 victory on Friday evening.

All eyes were on Trump to continue the sparkling form he has shown all week in Cardiff but just as was the case at the Masters last month, Murphy spoilt the party with a classy display that continued his own consistent campaign.

After Murphy had edged a tight opening frame, Trump resumed normal service with a sparkling run of 126 in frame two before Murphy nosed in front again with a break of 96 in frame three.

Just as a break of 58 had looked set to allow Trump to level again in frame four, Murphy found a brilliant long blue before fluking frame ball - the final pink - to ensure he went to the interval with his two-frame advantage intact.

When Trump came out punching immediately upon the resumption, a break of 66 helping him win the fifth frame, the match appeared to be heading for a tense finish but Murphy afforded himself some breathing space when stroking in a fabulous 101 that put him 4-2 up with only three frames to play.

To his credit, Trump responded again with a break of exactly 100 - the third century of the match - but Murphy wouldn't be denied, marching over the winning line with a run of 52 in frame eight that ended Trump's resistance. "

"Bingtao downs Higgins
John Higgins' hopes of winning a sixth Welsh Open title are over after he was beaten 5-2 by Yan Bingtao.

Having triumphed at the Riga Masters earlier in the season and reached the semi-finals of the UK Championship, Bingtao took another step up the ladder with a polished display that included breaks 66, 100, 55 and 61.

Bingtao led 3-1 after dominating the opening mini-session but Higgins will rue a missed opportunity in frame two when looking certain to level until twice missing the final pink along the bottom cushion, first into the bottom left-hand corner pocket and then into the opposite corner with his very next visit to the table.

The veteran did rally to win frames four and six and very nearly claimed the seventh frame when threatening to stage a comeback before Bingtao stepped in to close out the match and secure his place in the last four. "

The curse of The Sporting Life's Richard 'Tricky Dickie' Mann strikes again as John Higgins bows out !
