Judd Trump collides with good friend Matthew Selt for the inaugural Turkish Masters crown in Antalya on Sunday.
A total of 70 players descended on the Nirvana Cosmopolitan Hotel at the start of the week, and now just two remain with a top prize of £100,000 at stake.
Trump is set to appear in the 35th ranking final of his career – and second in as many weeks.
The Ace was runner-up to Joe Perry at the Welsh Open seven days ago, and has maintained that positive momentum in Turkey as he looks to add to the Champion of Champions crown he donned in November.
The world number three was on the brink of elimination at 4-1 and 4-3 down against Liang Wenbo and Zhou Yuelong respectively, but held his nerve on both occasions to prevail in a deciding frame.
Trump endured a much smoother passage in the semi-finals as he ran out a commanding 6-2 winner over Shaun Murphy.
Outside the Championship League, the Bristolian has won nine of his 12 previous meetings with good pal Selt.
Although, the latter was a 6-3 winner in their most recent encounter at the UK Championship earlier this season.
The world number 31 is preparing for the second ranking final of his career since first turning professional in 2002.
Selt beat three ranking event winners en route to the semi-finals; reigning UK champion Zhao Xintong, as well as Thepchaiya Un-Nooh and Martin Gould.
He then demonstrated brilliant character in his last-four clash with a resurgent Ding Junhui, who recovered from 3-0 down to lead 4-3.
The Romford cueist held his nerve as the pressure intensified by winning three of the last four frames to stand on the brink of landing his biggest pay cheque to date.
The final will be contested over the best of 19 frames at the Nirvana Cosmopolitan Hotel in Antalya.
Play gets underway at 11.30am GMT with the first eight frames, before a maximum of 11 will ensue from 5pm.
