Three-time champion Mark Selby has joined Kyren Wilson in the World Snooker Championship semi-finals.
Selby has defeated another three-time winner - Mark Williams - by 12 frames to 3 and with a session to spare at the Crucible.
Wilson was the first man into the semi-finals after he completed an impressive 13 frames to 8 quarter-final win against Australian Neil Robertson.
It's the third time the 2020 finalist has reached the last four of the tournament.
Two more quarter-finals are back underway.
Anthony McGill has a 9-7 lead in his match against 2015 champion Stuart Bingham and the winner will progress to face Selby in the last four.
Wilson takes on the winner of the Shaun Murphy and Judd Trump match which is all square at four frames a piece.
