Peter Ebdon booked his place in the Irish Masters final after a late-night 6-5 win over Australian Quinten Hann.
Ebdon will play Mark King in the final
Hann did himself no favours, bizarrely conceding the seventh frame when he was leading 30-24 and performing a pool-style break in the following frame.
Ebdon took advantage of the scattered reds to take a 5-3 lead but Hann then fought back to make it 5-5.
But Ebdon's break of 57 in the final frame was enough to seal victory and go into Sunday's final against Mark King.
