We have the two finalists: Marco Fu (who beat Ali Carter 9-7, despite trailing 5-2 at one point) and Shaun Murphy who beat Stephen Maguire comfortably with a 9-4 win. Who will win the final tomorrow?

New Poll and New Thread

Marco Fu


Shaun Murphy


I really want Marco to win. I hope he can do it to win his second ranking title. The book keepers have it 11-8 in favour of Shaun Murphy so, Marco Fu is obviously not the favourite but never discount him. He is very tough to beat.

How about when he beat Ronnie O'Sullivan to be crowned Grand Prix Champion 2007, after being 6-2 down? He's also reached the Semi-Finals of the World once in 2006 as well as the quarter finals at another time, and to date, this is his 4th Final appearance in any tournament (He reached the Grand Prix Final Twice, winning it in 2007, he won the Premier League beating Mark Williams).

Marco Fu has made 7 centuries so far in this tournament, that's way more than anyone else. Ronnie, who was knocked out, only managed 5.

Don't degrade it

Snooker is a great sport which is very difficult to play. It's one of the very few sports which is psychological. You can't make something happen like Tennis where you can exert your anger. In Snooker, you've got to suffer psychologically while your opponent is at the table making big breaks. Of course, if you're sat in the chair a long time, your game suffers and you get even worse.

I WANT Marco to win, but my money would be on Murphy. Actually, no it wouldn't because I really believe Marco can do this.

Marco has a good a chance as anyone when it comes to beating top players. He's the only one in the professional circuit to be one above Ronnie O'Sullivan in the head to heads. Meanwhile, I know what a challenge Murphy is. Okay, he's had a bad couple of seasons despite winning the Malta Cup last year, but he's coming back to form and playing like he used to that won him the World title in 2005. He's a tough one but Marco can do it. I really want him to win!

8-8. Might have to give Marco a new nickname. Marco 'Comeback' Fu. And he's got a great chance in this frame.
It's gonna be a blue day
#29
This last frame is bloody tense.

Argh I just got back from the pub and caught the end. Can't believe that ugly bastard won with that fluke.
#32
How flukey did he get at the end, you could tell it was fate he'd win when some of those went in, or didn't as shown by the black.

Ah crap. I'm gutted that Marco lost, especially on that Fluke. That's never a way to win a final, especially at the UK Championship. Well done, Shaun but I'm gutten you didn't lose it.
Anyway, Marco is now provisionally 6th in the rankings. That final was really intense! The Masters will be up and coming in January!

Best match I've seen since the darts match between Fordham and Van Barneveld. Murphy deserved it, although I'm gutted he did. Well played both players, Marco, you're time will come.
