And Judd is out! big upset, Marco just potted the big balls when it mattered. Judd missed allot of easy pots there and will be bitterly disappointed.

Maguire - Perry up next

I saw it when Trump went 4-3 ahead, he looked on form but you can never write a player like Fu off.

I think that Perry will beat Mags as well.

He's a gritty player Fu. That pink he potted, can't remember what frame it was was superb, and ultimately swung momentum his way.

I'll stick my neck out and say Perry will win tonight based on the fact he's carrying form into the tournament and Maguire isn't.

Judd Trump - overrated.

ding - murphy first up. Two excellent techniques on show, should be a decent match. Ding favorite for me. 6-3 win.

Bit of late notice; anyone fancy doing a write up for this years masters. Looking for a review of the Championship (obviously after the final)...the article will be for the soon to launch V2 magazine and you will get writing credit within the magazine itself.

Let me know either on here or drop me a message to my inbox.

I have seen ROS demolish players before but that was bad. When he is on form like this, there is no player on the tour that can stop him I feel. This Masters almost has an air of inevitability about it with Ronnie playing like that.

Last night I could not believe the shot selection oh Higgins in the last two frames, he had so many chances where he could play safely and finish Selby off but his shot selection was bizarre to say the least, Selby also looked confused by them.

If I get to watch the final then yes, if not, no. I'm not too sure of my plans on Sunday and therefore if I don't see the final there's no point in me writing anything.

Poor Ricky, he never really performs in Britain. I think he feels the pressure in the UK because he strikes me as being really, really nervous both playing and being interviewed. I don't think I've ever seen him play well at one of the big 3 events in truth.

Was the 134 a clearance or 2 pots from a maximum ?

Didn't he reach the SF of the world snooker last year.

He did but how he got that far I don't know. He was pretty dreadful in that match (as was Barry) and choked as soon as he caught a sniff of the winning line.

I really hope that Murphy gets through. Never used to like him but he seems a much nicer person now. Always been a fan of the way he plays snooker though.

Ah poor Shaun, it just wasn't his day. It's nice to see him back in the latter stages of tournaments though and I hope he can push on and finish the season strongly now. As for Selby, we saw his A game today. He took his chances and his safety play was exemplary. I fancy him for this title after today's display.

Its going to be an interesting final should Ronnie get through. Selby is the only player that could possibly push him. Mag's would collapse to Ronnie.

I think it all depends on the first two frames. Mags has started with a bang so far in each match and if he wins the first two he's got a chance. If it goes the other way, it will be a very short night.

I really hope Shaun has no plans to retire from the sport as he's a class act but the way he waved goodbye to the crowd when he lost makes me wonder.

Ronnie has given Mag's some chances but Mag's is blobbing big time.

I doubt he will retire he is still young and has a lot to offer.

I didn't quite catch what he was saying in his interview but, when talking about it, Hazel mentioned Shaun said something about "finding something else".

Hasn't he been extremely busy with table and cloth development? I think that he is planning on going into that after he retired but not retiring just yet.

Ronnie has won this final, been the best player in the tournament by a country mile.

Oh Mark picard I saw a tiny bit of the first session (ROS was 5-0 up) and Selby was getting chances but not taking them. I wouldn't put a comeback past him though; he does love one. If he's wearing the silvery suit beware! Still, ROS playing like that makes me smile.

Ronnie has been dominant the whole tournament but he was giving some chances to Mag's yesterday and he has given a few to Selby today. For some reason, neither player could capitalise on them. When Ronnie gives a chance, it simply must be taken.

I cant see Selby making a comeback from here to be honest, Ronnie will win 10-3 or 4.

For all his genius this season, he's beatable. Bingham proved at the UK if you take your chances against him, you'll win, or at least push him close. Snooker isn't all about him though, it's just a shame lots of people think it is.

He can be beaten for sure but players need to be on top form.

It is a shame that a lot of people think that he is the be all to end all of snooker but he certainly is one of the biggest draw cards in the game.

9-3, all but over now.

It takes ROS on an off day to beat him the way he is going at the moment. No one can stop him.

I saw the final session but nothing really of the day session when ROS played what was apparently awesome snooker. If someone else saw it and could write about it they'd be better doing it, if not I can.

Anyije watching the Masters? Ronnie has just beat Selby 6-3, with Steve Davis claiming his clearance to win the match was 'one of the greatest of all time'. Will face Allen or Hawkins in the semi.

No doubt a great clearance but I wouldn't call it greatest ever. I look at it in context in that win or lose it he was still going to be one frame ahead in the match needing just one more frame to win.

Would've been the greatest of all time had he come back from 5-0 down and that was to win 6-5. It was an exceptional clearance though.

well what a match that was between Robertson and Trump. Almost exclusively one-chance snooker, Trump taking it in the decider after a remarkable cut into the middle pocket got him going. 6 centuries in the match in total, with Trump making four of them. Stunning match clap clap to both players
