Neil Robertson gained revenue for his World Grand Prix loss to Ronnie O’Sullivan with a battling 6-4 victory this afternoon at Alexandra Palace .

O’Sullivan made a cagey start, as a wild missed pot and poor safety handed Robertson a chance and he set his stall out with a break of 119 to take the opener.

Robertson took a 2-0 lead with a break of 67 only for Ronnie to hit back with replies of 58 and 66 to draw level .

After the interval Robertson powered in breaks of 50,54 and 130 to claim a memorable victory. 

Mark Williams and John Higgins produced one of the greatest masters matches in the history of the tournament with the Welshman prevailing a 6-5 winner.

8 breaks of 50 plus with 3 of those being centuries the crowd were treated to an exhibition of top class snooker this evening at the imperious Alexandra Palace.

A nerveless break of 91 in the deciding frame claimed victory for Williams.
