Masters champion Mark Allen has been knocked out of the World Snooker Championship at the quarter-final stage.
Allen was beaten 13-6 by Kyren Wilson after the Englishman won the two frames he needed to clinch a semi-final spot.
Wilson won seven of the eight frames on Tuesday evening to hold an 11-5 lead going into the final session.
The world number nine will now play either John Higgins or Judd Trump for a place in this year's Crucible final.
Resuming six frames behind, Allen briefly gave himself hope of an upset with a half-century break in the opening frame of the session.
But the Northern Irishman was unable to capitalise on that success as Wilson won the next two to advance to a place in the last four, finishing the match with a break of 53 to secure a comprehensive victory.
