Neil Robertson won a thrilling Champion of Champions final against Judd Trump on Sunday night, winning 10-9 after a final frame decider to claim the £150,000 top prize.
It was an outrageously high standard from both men with the winner making five centuries and the runner-up rolling in three over the 19 frames.
The match was tight throughout but Trump will be cursing his luck at 9-8 ahead and having a significant lead in the 17th frame before missing a red to the middle with Robertson needing snookers.
The Aussie stepped in, got the snooker required and cleared up to force a re-spotted black, which he sunk to force a decider.
The non-stop brilliance lasted right till the end as Robertson made a fantastic 137 to bring the match to a close.
Robertson made an impressive start to the final, moving 2-0 ahead thanks to a break of 112 in the second.
However, Trump was not about to be shown up in the century-making process, as he rattled in successive breaks of 121, 127 and 119 to take a 4-3 lead, recovering from 1-3 down.
The Aussie was not deterred, though, and ended the first session ahead, with another ton, 111, to take him to a 5-4 lead.
The evening session started with Trump leveling the game, but Robertson then had a great chance for glory, potting 13 reds and blacks, but breaking down on 104 with the maximum in sight.
Neither man was blinking when it came to winning frames, though, and they just couldn’t be separated as the match hurried along to 8-8, Robertson making the highest break of the game to that point (135) in the 16th frame.
The world champion took the 17th and went one away from victory, coming back from needing a snooker, then looked to be on a clear run to the title before being held back.
Robertson had the first chance in the 18th, but broke down with Trump stepping in to make 69 and getting to the point where his opponent needed snookers.
Trump missed a fairly simple red, in came the Australian who managed to get the one snooker he needed, and level the scores, taking the frame to a re-spotted black, which Robertson eventually sank to the middle, taking us to a decider.
The two consecutive frames won from needing snookers showed the nerves, but also the fantastic resolve of both men as they took the game to a 19th frame.
Trump had a go at a long red early on and that was his last shot of the tournament as Robertson stepped up to make 137 and get his hands on the trophy.
