  1. O'Sullivan beats Selby to reach semi-finals

    Ronnie O'Sullivan

    Ronnie O'Sullivan has booked his place in the semi-finals of the Welsh Open.

    O'Sullivan eased past world number four Mark Selby with a 5-1 win to book a last-four tie against either Australian Neil Robertson or England's Kyren Wilson.

    It was straightforward for O'Sullivan, who resisted a potential late comeback from fellow Englishman Selby with the help of two fouls in the final frame.

    O'Sullivan is looking to win a fifth Welsh Open title in Cardiff.

  2. Ronnie O'Sullivan eases into quarter finals

    Four-time champion Ronnie O'Sullivan is through to the quarter-finals of the Welsh Open in Cardiff.

    O'Sullivan took just under an hour to beat Iran's Soheil Vahedi 4-0 in what was his 100th game in the Welsh Open.

    His opponent in the last eight will be Mark Selby, who beat China's Zhao Xintong 4-3.

    Dominic Dale, the only remaining Welshman in the competition, was beaten 4-1 by Shaun Murphy while Kyren Wilson beat Ding Junhui 4-2.

  3. What is the Welsh Open?

    Neil Robertson lifts the Welsh Open trophy

    The Welsh Open has been a part of the tour since 1992, when it replaced the Welsh Professional Championship, a tournament open only to Welsh players.

    The event moved from Newport to Cardiff in 1999 and has become a fan favourite with a history of thrilling finals and tight matches.

    John Higgins, who last won in 2018, has a record five Welsh Open titles, while Mark Williams (1996 & 1999) remains the only Welshman to win the trophy in its current incarnation. Whoever follows in their footsteps this year will also pocket a cool £70,000 – with the runner-up taking home £40,000.

    Neil Robertson held off a spirited fightback from Stuart Bingham to win the 2019 Welsh Open final 9-7 in Cardiff.

    Australian Robertson led 7-3 before Bingham won four successive frames – but Robertson edged back in front before clinching victory with a break of 83. Read the full report here.
