After the break Murphy came out determined to put land in between, taking the first two frames with two breaks of 72 in each.
Woollaston looked on the ropes and everything indicated that the seventh frame would be the last party, because of the multitude of errors made by the player of Leicester, Murhpy reaching even to force the snookers to regain options in the game.
But the effort would not be rewarded with the prize of the frame and the party, but it not takes long since in the next frame Murphy regained his best and ended the game with a beautiful hundred 106 points.
Deserved victory for Murphy, seen live, He is a player that impresses with its quality and safety. It is a large and it shows in the big races.

Trump, He won the first three frames quickly and conveniently (with hundred it included in the first). The Chinese player had not scored any points until the fourth frame, in which he won making a break of 78.

Neil Robertson went into the break with a slight lead over rival. Thepchaiya Un-Nooh had the second and the fourth frame at your fingertips, but he made mistakes (When I went 58 Y 53 up points respectively), that allowed the Australian to enter the table for winning them.
The second half of the session between Robertson and Un-Nooh was exciting.
Robertson was taking the first frame after the break (4-1).
The Thai player was about to achieve maximum break in the following (140) and pocketing 44.000 pounds of award, but he failed to hole out black ball, but placed the 4-2 on the scoreboard.
Robertson's response was immediate. With his opponent sunk, It achieved the highest break of the tournament so far this year: 145.

However his opponent fought win the frame and could score 28 points and black last failed (an identical black which had failed in his attempt to achieve maximum break, that he had given a chance to take 5-3 below), placing in the lead 67-62. Neil Robertson embocaba finally the black ball and ended winning the match by 6-2.
