Jack Lisowski is enjoying his finest day as a professional snooker player after reaching his first major ranking event final.
The 27-year-old thrashed Stephen Maguire 5-1 to book a place in tonight’s Riga Masters final. Earlier in the day he beat Graeme Dott 4-0.
Lisowski, currently ranked 26th in the world, will face former world champion and current world number 10 Neil Robertson who also enjoyed a convincing semi-final win this afternoon by beating Stuart Carrington 5-0.
The winner of tonight’s final will pocket a cheque for £50,000 and have their hands on the first ranking trophy of the 2018/19 snooker season.
Should Lisowski win tonight, he will become a major ranking event winner for the first time and scoop his biggest pay-check to date since turning professional around ten years ago.
Lisowski enjoyed his best ever campaign last season which saw win total prize money of more than £150,000. His previous best was winning just over £60,000 a few seasons before.
Robertson, who won this event two years ago, now stands on the verge of winning what would be his 14th ranking title of his career.
The final starts at 7pm (UK time).
