Number six seed Jack Lisowksi faces Neil Robertson on Tuesday, looking to advance to the semi-final of the Cazoo Tour Championship, at the Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales.
The Cheltenham born 29-year-old has been in good form this year, reaching the final of the World Grand Prix, the German Masters and the Gibraltar Open, before being defeated by current World Number One Judd Trump in all three events.
If Lisowksi was to progress to the final, it is likely that he would meet his nemesis Trump again, with both players on opposite sides of the draw.
Elsewhere, Mark Williams won his first first title in three years becoming the oldest ranking event winner, since Doug Mountjoy in 1989, at the age of 46.
Despite the his return to form, the Welshman doesn’t believe he is in contention for a fourth world title next month, saying “Can I give people a game, absolutely.
“Whether I can carry the form through nearly three weeks I don’t know, but the only thing I can guarantee is I’ll be trying 100% in every game.
“To do what I did in 2018, the work I put in, the practice I put in and the practice I knew I had to put in, I’m just not prepared to do that anymore.
“I’m not prepared to practice six, seven hours a day even though there’s a world title possibly at the end of it. I’m OK with that, I’ve accepted it”
The World Championship gets underway at the Crucible in Sheffield on Saturday, April 17.
