Mark Allen - hopeful of winning this competition
The following year after winning the World Amateur Championship in 2004, Mark Allen became professional and spent just three seasons before cracking the top 16. In his fourth year as a professional, he advanced to the World Championship semi-finals by defeating the defending champion, Ronnie O'Sullivan, before losing to John Higgins in the finals. Allen competed in his first ever final of a ranking tournament in 2011, at the UK Championship; however, he ultimately lost to Judd Trump. The following year, in 2011, he won his first tournament of note, the 2012 World Open. He has six ATP World Tour championships, the most recent being the 2021 Northern Ireland Open. With his victory in the 2018 Masters, he completed the first leg of the Triple Crown. We hope Mark Allen continues with his league win after defeating Noppon Saengkham in the semi-final round of the British Open.
Ryan Day - underdog to fight till the last frame
This entire 2022 British Open tournament has not been easy for Ryan Day. Ryan Day, who had previously lost two matches before entering this competition, has bounced back nicely since his first match against Gerrard Greene. Ryan Day has proven to be a worthy contender to face off against his strong opponent, Mark Allen, for the £100,000 prize fund, even though he was not one of the favorites to make it to the finals or probably win the competition. Even though Ryan Day is the underdog here, we can't rule out the possibility of him shocking Mark Allen and winning the match.
