Mark Allen beat Ryan Day and Marcus Campbell in the opening rounds

Mark Allen is out of the Australian Open after suffering a 5-3 defeat to Stuart Bingham in Friday's quarter-final game in Bendigo.

The Antrim man questioned Bingham's "bottle" before the game as the feud between the two players continued.

Allen took a 2-1 lead thanks to breaks of 45 and 65 but Bingham hit back by winning the next three frames.

Allen pulled one back before Bingham sealed a place in the semis with a composed break of 96.
