Ryan Day was crowned the king of Gibraltar after he clinched his second ranking title of the season.
The Welshman beat China’s Cao Yupeng to win the tournament and with it won £25,000.
Day started the season without winning a major ranking event but this season has seen him land two to his name following his first triumph in the Riga Masters at the start of the season.
Day beat Yupeng 4-0 and made breaks of 58, 72 and 100 to complete the victory inside an hour.
He now moves up to 17th place in the world rankings and closes in on an automatic spot for this year’s World Championship taking place in just over a month’s time.
Yupeng, however, suffered another night of frustration losing his second major ranking final of the season. The talented Chinese player is still waiting for his first major silverware after losing grand finals in Gribraltar and the Scottish Open in December.
