      Judd has won the first frame of the evening to claw one back.

      Still a comfortable lead for Mark Allen though.

      7-3

      And now Mark Allen is just one frame away from the title.

      9-3.

      Congratulations to Mark Allen on winning the 2023 Champion of Champions

      To beat Judd Trump so comfortably the way he's been playing recently is some achievement from The Pistol. He's had a fairly quiet season so far, so to win this with the UK Champs just around the corner will give him a huge boost heading to York. And his pursuit of becoming World number one will continue.

      Judd should look at this as his 4th Champion of Champions of final in the last 5 years - including three in a row. But he's only won one of those four. It's also his fourth final in the last five events and a sixth for the season so far so he has to be happy with his performances. Hopefully he has a good run in York as well although he's only gone past the last 16 once in the last 8 years there. And he may just be on the come down from his great form that saw him win three ranking events in a month.

      Few more surprises in this round with 13 of the lower ranked players progressing to the fourth and final qualifying round. Big up to Craig Steadman, who isn't on the tour this season and is playing as an amature yet has made it to the last 48 and is just one game away from reaching York.

      Ding Junhui v Robbie Williams

      Ding Junhui 6-3 Robbie Williams
      Michael White 5-6 Fan Zhengyi
      Thepchaiya Un-Nooh 6-3 Ricky Walden
      Wu Yize 4-6 Noppon Saengkham
      Anthony McGill 6-2 Anthony Hamilton
      Dave Gilbert 5-6 Jamie Clarke
      Lyu Haotian 3-6 Matt Selt
      Jamie Jones 6-4 Zak Surety
      Lukas Kleckers 1-6 Ben Woollaston
      Joe Perry 4-6 Mark Joyce
      Joe O'Connor 6-3 Stephen Maguire
      Yuan Sijun 6-3 Ken Doherty
      David Lilley 3-6 Elliot Slessor
      Zhou Yuelong 6-5 Ian Burns
      Pang Junxu 6-2 Craig Steadman
      Scott Donaldson 4-6 Hossein Vafaei

      Last 32 draw;

      Mark Allen v Ding Junhui
      Tom Ford v Noppon Saengkham
      Mark Williams v Fan Zhengyi
      Kyren Wilson v Jamie Clarke
      Mark Selby v Mark Joyce
      Barry Hawkins v Ben Woollaston
      Jack Lisowski v Jamie Jones
      Judd Trump v Pang Junxu
      Ronnie O'Sullivan v Anthony McGill
      Rob Milkins v Thepchaiya Un-Nooh
      John Higgins v Joe O'Connor
      Neil Robertson v Zhou Yuelong
      Shaun Murphy v Hossein Vafaei
      Ali Carter v Matt Selt
      Zhang Anda v Elliot Slessor
      Luca Brecel v Yuan Sijun

      Now that we know who the final 32 are, it's time to pick a winner and I'm gonna go for Mark Selby. He had a decent start to the season but has been quiet of late. He's also due a good run in York, having not gone further than the quarter finals since he last won it in 2016. He's got a nice draw to open up with, ending up with the lowest ranked player still in the competiton - Mark Joyce.

      Potentially Hawkins in the last 16, Trump in the quarters and Mark Allen in the semis. So he could deffo be facing some of the form players of the season if he is to win it.

      From the bottom half of the draw, I think Shaun Murphy has a good chance of going far if he can past Vafaei in the opening round.

      Fascinating opening day at the Barbican as we saw three final frame deciders, including one in which defending champ Mark Allen went out.

      He lost 6-5 to Ding after leading 4-2. Tom Ford fought back from 5-1 down to win his deciding frame against Noppon Saengkham and world number 60 Jamie Clarke fought back from the scoreline to beat Kyren Wilson, whose rather poor season continues.

      In the only game that didn't go the distance, Mark Williams went through against Fan Zhengyi with a 6-4 victory. He'll now play Clarke in all-Welsh last 16 tie. While world numbers 16 (Ford) and 17 (Ding) will face off in the next round. The winners of those two matches will meet in the quarter finals.

      Today sees World champ Luca Brecel go up against Yuan Sijun and Zhang Anda take on Elliot Slessor while in the evening it's Ali Carter against Matt Selt and Shaun Murphy facing off with Hossein Vafaei.

      I said Shaun Murphy could have a good tournament if got past Hossein Vafaei but unfortunately (for him) he didn't with the Iranian winning 6-4. Can't say I'm disappointed because he's really one of my worst players. He's such a smug looking arrogant c**t.

      Vafaei will now play Matt Selt, who got past Ali Carter with a 6-3 victory. World champ Luca Brecel looks to have finally got his season underway with a 6-4 victory over Yuan Sijun and he'll face the surprise man of the season, Zhang Anda, who won the fourth final frame decider of the tournament over Elliott Slessor.

      This afternoon sees Barry Hawkins taking on Ben Woollaston as well as Judd Trump against Pang Junxu before this evenings matches of Jack Lisowski versus Jamie Jones and my pick for the tournament, Mark Selby, going up against Mark Joyce.

      Well we have our first whitewash of the UK Championship and it's my tip Mark Selby who beats Mark Joyce 6-0.

      Trump won 6-1 against Pang and Barry Hawkins beat Ben Woollaston 6-4 in the afternoon matches.

      Lisowski one of the best potters on the tour but lacks a bit of bottle. Robertson looks strong. His A game is one of the best but like plenty of others his B game lets him down at times. Ronnie going 4-2 up on McGill. Ronnie never out of it despite his moods. Now 5-2 best of 11.

      This afternoon saw two of the all-time greats progress to the last 16 with Higgins beating Joe O'Connor 6-3 and O'Sullivan beating McGill 6-2.

      This evening saw Neil Robertson's abysmal season continue with yet another first round exit after losing 6-2 to Zhou Yuelong.

      Leaving just Un-Nooh and Milkins to finish before we know the last 16 draw. And this is going to a deciding frame, the fifth of this round.

      Ding v Ford
      Williams v Clarke
      Selby v Hawkins
      Jones v Trump
      O'Sullivan v Un-Nooh/Milkins
      Higgins v Zhou
      Vafaei v Selt
      Zhang v Brecel

      First two quarter finals are confirmed now and all four men are previous UK Champ winners.

      Ding will play Mark Williams after Ding beat Tom Ford 6-3 and Williams beat fellow Welshman Jamie Clarke 6-4. And in the other it'll be Judd Trump against Mark Selby after Judd won with a whitewash victory over Jamie Jones who really didn't turn up today. And after his own whitewash victory in the first round, Selby went the distance this time with Barry Hawkins in a really good match.

      The deciding frame took nearly an hour and had everything in it. But I'm happy that my pick is still in it.

      Tomorrow afternoon will be John Higgins v Zhou Yuelong and Ronnie O'Sullivan v Rob Milkins with the winners of those matches facing each other in the quarters. And in the evening it'll be Luca Brecel v Zhang Anda and Hossein Vafaei v Matt Selt with the winners of those two matches facing off in the other quarter final.

      Different results to the two legends today.

      O'Sullivan managed to avoid a comeback from Rob Milkins and win the deciding frame to reach that last 8. Neither player played that well and it ended up with Milkins making too many mistakes rather than Ronnie actually winning it.

      For Higgins, he didn't play that well either but his opponent was on his game and Zhou Yeulong went through 6-3 to set up the quarter final tie with Ronnie.

      Didn’t see last nights matches due to us playing but the results were Zhang defeating Brecel 6-4 as the World champ continues to disappoint this season but Zhang’s impressive year goes on.

      And in the other game Hossein Vafaei beat Matt Selt 6-1 to set up a quarter final with Zhang.

      This afternoon is that match between Vafaei and Zhang as well as O’Sullivan against Zhou.

      This evening sees Trump against Selby and Williams taking on Ding.

      Trump was talking after one of his matches that he'd be interested in doing one as well so it might start a trend.

      For the second consecutive round, O'Sullivan survives a final frame decider. He went three up then four-one up and ended up five-four down after playing like a pub player but in the final two frames he was back to looking boss.

      He'll play Hossein Vafaei in the semi finals, who won 6-4 against Zhang Anda in a match that had a lot of quality in it. Be interesting to see how Vafaei and O'Sullivan interact with each other after their previous meetings.

      Well my pick for the tournament, Mark Selby, has bowed out at the quarter final stage after a 6-3 defeat to Judd Trump.

      Trump raced into a four nil lead going into the mid-session interval and that was that basically. Selby fought back but was too far behind in the end.

      Trump's opponent in the semi final is still unknown as Ding and Williams are still playing, with Ding holding a slender 4-3 lead. Though Williams is in front by 15 in the eighth frame with only the colours remaining.

      Trump looking in very good form, will be very hard to beat.

       I love watching Mark Williams so hoping he takes the next frame against Ding. That hour long frame was great to watch and although he made quite a few fouls pulled out some daring escape shots.
