Kyren Wilson and Shaun Murphy battle it out for the right to become the latest new name on the Tour Championship trophy in Hull on Sunday.
The duo have each picked up one ranking title apiece this season, but face off on a huge occasion at the Bonus Arena with a £150,000 top prize at stake.
Murphy is making only his second appearance in this prestigious competition, having lost his opening match on debut in 2020, and has continued the form which led him to Players Championship glory in February.
The 2005 World Champion began by defeating Robert Milkins 10-8 in a repeat of the recent Welsh Open final, before holding his nerve to edge out WST Classic champion Mark Selby in a deciding frame epic on Saturday.
Murphy is featuring in a third final in the space of six weeks and is vying for an 11th ranking title which would move him ahead of Jimmy White on the all-time list.
Wilson had suffered Quarter-Final defeats in his two previous Tour Championship campaigns (2019 and 2021) before making it third time lucky with a crushing 10-4 win over Ali Carter earlier this week.
He then produced a scintillating display of break-building to defeat Ding Junhui 10-5 with the aid of six century breaks, coming within one of equalling the record set by Stephen Hendry during the 1994 UK Championship final.
The reigning European Masters champion has enjoyed a welcome return to form in recent months, reaching the Quarter-Finals of the German Masters and Semi-Finals of the Players Championship.
Wilson is appearing in a 13th ranking event final and is targeting what would be the biggest title of his career to date and a first major on UK soil.
Murphy has the upper-hand in terms of the head-to-heads with seven wins from their 11 previous meetings, including the 2020 Welsh Open final which resulted in a crushing 9-1 success for The Magician.
Murphy also prevailed in the 2021 World Championship Semi-Finals, as well as back-to-back wins over ‘The Warrior’ in the World Grand Prix and Players Championship this season.
Their latest encounter gets under way from 1pm BST for a total of eight frames, before resuming to a finish from 7pm over the best of 19 frames.
