Gary is the geordie flying high

Gary Wilson booked his spot in the semifinals with an outstanding 13-9 Victory over two time Crucible finalist Ali Carter. Wilson fired in 4 centuries and 7 other breaks of 50 plus to earn the biggest payday of his career (£100,000) and a place in the one table setup at the mecca of snooker. Wilson spoke to reporter Curtis Braithwaite and said “I’m still shaking and i can’t believe that I’m in the semi finals, I’ve worked so hard at my game for year’s and I’m just delighted to see it pay off” Gary will now face Judd Trump in an exciting encounter starting tomorrow afternoon.

David Gilbert booked his spot in the semifinals with a 13-8 victory over Kyren Wilson. Gilbert who nearly gave up the game in 2010 earns his biggest payday with this victory and will now face John Higgins in the one table set up.

John Higgins is through to yet another Crucible semifinal after a 13-10 victory over Neil Robertson. Higgins rolled back the year’s firing in counter clearances at will to defy the man in form and is a firm favourite to make another Crucible final.

Judd Trump wll face Gary Wilson in the semifinals over the world championships after a 13-6 Victory over Stephen Maguire. Trump who won the master’s back in January will start a firm favourite against Gary Wilson in the Semifinals.
