Mark Williams - Williams’ try will not be enough
Mark Williams overcame his nerves to win 6-3 against Hossein Vafaei and go to the final of the British Open, where he will face Mark Selby. After his Iranian opponent made a break of 135, bringing him within striking distance of 4-3, the Welshman, who is 48 years old, stated he was "totally gone" and shaking. In spite of this, the two-time defending champion of the British Open kept his cool and won his semi-final match with breaks of 62 and 71. Mark Williams, who finished in second place in the Championship League that kicked off the new season, will get another opportunity to win what would be his 25th career ranking title if he is successful. The 48-year-old player earned his highest rating since the 2021 British Open in Leicester, where he triumphed over Gary Wilson in the championship match.
Mark Selby - Selby to be crowned champions
Mark Selby, who was competing in his sixth consecutive semi-final on the tour on Saturday, defeated Xiao Guodong in his match for a spot in the last four by a score of 6-0. If Mark Selby were to achieve victory, it would be his 23rd victory at this level and his first victory since he won the WST Classic in March. The Englishman has a better head-to-head record versus Mark Williams than he does against any other opponent, having won 22 of the 39 matches between them in all competitions.

As a result, despite the fact that I anticipate this being a very close race, my money is still on Mark Selby to come out on top. Also, as I anticipate a good showing from both camps, I anticipate a lengthy competition; hence, I will be betting that the total number of frames will exceed.
