Selby stuns O'Sullivan with 6-0 victory, advances to players championship semi-finals

Posted : 23 February 2024

Mark Selby delivered a remarkable performance, defeating Ronnie O'Sullivan 6-0 to secure a spot in the semi-finals of the Players Championship in Telford. The four-time world champion showcased his prowess with breaks of 65, 91, 81, 105, and 59, dominating O'Sullivan throughout the match.


Despite O'Sullivan's attempt to stage a comeback in the sixth frame, Selby sealed the win by overturning a 58-point deficit. Selby expressed satisfaction with his all-around game, emphasizing the effectiveness of his safety and long game.


In another quarter-final clash, Mark Allen celebrated his 38th birthday and 700th professional match with a 6-4 victory over Welsh Open champion Gary Wilson. Allen, who displayed impressive form with three centuries in the first round, recorded breaks of 84, 63, and 75 to take a 3-1 lead.


Despite some slip-ups allowing Wilson to draw level, Allen regained momentum, securing back-to-back frames for the win. Allen's composed 69 break in the final frame sealed his place in the semi-finals, where he will face Ali Carter on Friday.


O'Sullivan entered the quarter-final seeking his 17th consecutive match victory and aiming for a fourth straight title after winning the UK Championship, the Masters, and the World Grand Prix. However, Selby capitalized on loose safety play from O'Sullivan, displaying excellent tactical play and heavy scoring.


The match began controversially with a missed attempt by O'Sullivan, and referee Desislava Bozhilova failed to issue a warning. Despite the early drama, Selby's dominant performance secured a memorable victory and a spot in the semi-finals against John Higgins or Zhang Anda.
