Trailing 4-2 in the semi-final clash, the five-times world champion hit back in superb fashion winning four frames in a row to book his place in Sunday’s final.

Following the 6-4 victory, O’Sullivan will now wait to find out who he plays in the final with world number one and reigning world champion Mark Selby taking on China’s number one Ding Junhui on Saturday night.

O’Sullivan has been the season’s top player after winning the English Open, the Shanghai Masters and the UK Championship. And just one more win will see him add the World Grand Prix trophy to his name – making it four titles.

Only Ding Junhui and Stephen Hendry have won more titles in a single season.

They currently both hold the record of winning five major ranking titles in one season but that record is looking vulnerable with O’Sullivan in such great form.
