Peter Ebdon who has kind of gone unoticed so far in this tournament produced one of his best performances in a while to beat defending champion Junhui 9-5 in the quarter finals. Another astonishing result was the 9-1 victory by Stephen Hendry over Ronnie O'Sullivan, although not a real scoreline as Ronnie conceded the match in a bizarre turn of events when he was 4-1 down.
