    Gilbert needing comeback to remember

    David Gilbert needs to do the unthinkable today and send the favourite for the World Snooker Championship packing.

    Kyren Wilson leads by four frames, only needing three more to book his place in the final.

    Should Gilbert steal the match and end up in Sunday's final, it will be a performance to remember.


  • Today, 06:00By Kieran Davies

    No closer to knowing finalists

    Although you would lean towards Kyren Wilson seeing the match out against David Gilbert, The Crucible is the place for upsets.

    With Stuart Bingham and Jak Jones locked in a stalemate, we are no closer to knowing who is going to grace this year's final.

    It shows the levels the players are at that everything is still so finely poised.

    One thing you can guarantee, The Crucible will be packed for every day's play as snooker's elite tournament decides a winner.

    Stuart Bingham v Jak Jones


  • Today, 02:00By Kieran Davies

    Nothing to separate early starters

    Stuart Bingham and Jak Jones ended their session tied at 8-8.

    There is still a long way to go in this best of 33 frames match.

    It is impossible to pick a winner as we have seen so far, the game swinging from one player to the other.

    They both will have watched the evening session between Wilson and Gilbert and will be more than aware how quickly their luck can change.

    Gilbert blows away demons with century

    David Gilbert seemed to be a in a dark place for most of the second half of the evening session.

    Nothing was going his way and his potting ability had left him.

    Winning the last frame will have been a huge boost to Gilbert, especially in the manner he did it with a century break.

    All the crowd were behind him and cheered every single pot.

    He will regroup now overnight and feel if he brings his game he is more than capable of staging a comeback.


  • 3rd May 2024, 23:00By Kieran Davies

    Jones looking to make Morgan proud

    In a weird twist of his childhood, Jak Jones was never really into snooker.

    It was a holiday in Greece where former Crucible semi-finalist Darren Morgan saw him playing pool.

    He got him on the snooker table and Welshman has never looked back since.

    Jones would love nothing more than to book his place in this weekend's final to show Morgan's talent spotting eye is spot on.


  • 3rd May 2024, 22:08By Kieran Davies

    Kyren Wilson 14-10 David Gilbert

    A fantastic break of 101 wins the frame for David Gilbert.

    Psychologically that will be a huge positive going into the next session.

    The crowd roared as the black went in, a brilliant clearance from a player who was really struggling to find some form in the match.


  • 3rd May 2024, 22:04By Kieran Davies

    Kyren Wilson 14-9 David Gilbert

    Gilbert pots a sensational long red to give himself hope.

    He is currently on a break of 38 and leads in the frame 68-1.

    If he can seal this frame it will leave him only four frames behind going into the next session.


  • 3rd May 2024, 21:57By Kieran Davies

    Kyren Wilson 14-9 David Gilbert

    Gilbert manages a break of 30 but tries a plant into the middle that does not come off.

    He was deperately unlucky going into the pack that the cue ball did not leave him an available red.

    The frame is finely poised now with Gilbert leading 30-1 but both players trying to play safety shots to not allow their opponent the chance to put a break together.


  • 3rd May 2024, 21:47By Kieran Davies

    Kyren Wilson 14-9 David Gilbert

    A break of 30 sees Wilson take the frame 69-23.

    Things are just not going well for Gilbert and he really needs to win the final frame of the session to stay in this match for tomorrow.

    This next frame could be so pivotal in the outcome of this match.


  • 3rd May 2024, 21:43By Kieran Davies

    Kyren Wilson 13-9 David Gilbert

    A break of 39 for Wilson but the cannon into the pack didn't work for him.

    He leads the frame 39-23 but Gilbert goes for a long pot and is a country mile away from the pocket.

    The way he is playing at the moment, David Gilbert must just want to get back to the hotel and regroup right now.


  • 3rd May 2024, 21:38By Kieran Davies

    Kyren Wilson 13-9 David Gilbert

    Gilbert amasses a break of 23, potting a fantastic long red into the yellow pocket.

    As the crowd erupts as it goes in, he goes for the green next and overcuts it and hangs his head in disbelief.

    Kyren Wilson has a chance to take advantage of his opponent's poor form in this session now.


  • 3rd May 2024, 21:32By Kieran Davies

    Kyren Wilson 13-9 David Gilbert

    With all the colours remaining, Wilson misses a cut on the black after potting the last red and returns to his seat.

    Gilbert looks at the board and concedes the frame.

    He heads off for a toilet break and no doubt to try and clear his head as he falls four frames behind.

    The craziest thing is, he only needed two snookers in the last frame to be able to win it.


  • 3rd May 2024, 21:30By Kieran Davies

    Kyren Wilson 12-9 David Gilbert

    After being gifted another chance to get into this frame, Gilbert plays a poor attempt at potting the brown with the rest.

    The ball rattles and cue ball comes down the table and gives Wilson the chance to put this frame to bed.

    He leads this frame 40-14 with just one red left on the table, which is tight to the bottom cushion.


  • 3rd May 2024, 21:23By Kieran Davies

    Kyren Wilson 12-9 David Gilbert

    Both players are feeling the pressure right now.

    Gilbert misses a pot and leaves Wilson with what seems a simple red into the yellow pocket.

    He rattles it and leaves Gilbert with a chance to address his demons.

    Wilson leads the frame 39-5 currently.

    Unbelievably Gilbert misses a simple cut of the blue into the middle pocket, things have gone pear-shaped for him in this session.


  • 3rd May 2024, 21:14By Kieran Davies

    Kyren Wilson 12-9 David Gilbert

    After missing a pot, for the first time, David Gilbert's head drops.

    He presents another chance to Wilson to put together a frame-winning break.

    Wilson leads 19-4 at the moment but the reds are spread and the colours are all in positions that present no problem to him.
