Allen wins yet another thriller

Antrim's Mark Allen claimed another plucky final-frame thriller and went close to 147 glory as he booked a place in the quarter-finals.

It looked like 25-year-old Allen was crumbling as he let a 12-9 lead over Barry Hawkins slip away, having earlier fought back superbly from 7-3 behind to go in front.

But he was gifted an immediate chance in the decider when Hawkins ran in to the blue off his break, and Allen plundered 12 reds and 12 blacks.
