In the 14th frame, Hendry cleared the colours from green to black to tie points score and then clinched the frame on a re-spotted black to stay alive... When Alex Higgins played his 2nd round match, it was standing room only during the whole match!

Third round

Losers receiving 1520 pts.
HENDRY (1) bt THORNE (15) 9-2 Frame scores: 32-76 (76), 88-16, 68-54, 117-13 (113), 92-1 (75), 45-82 (57), 83-40, 128-0 (128), 101-0 (101), 136-0 (103), 71-29 Stephen broke a couple of records in this match. 1) He's the first player to have hit three successive centuries in a match for a second time (six players have done it once). 2) He scored 454 points without reply, breaking his own record of 443. If I remember correctly, it was in the semi-final of last year's UK Championship against John Parrott,that he made his first three successive centuries and also the 443 points without reply. WATTANA (3) bt SWAIL (12) 9-4 Frame scores: 60-46 (58), 100-9 (98), 45-81, 70-34, 83-13 (83), 83-29 (79), 56-72 (56 Wattana), 78-0 (77), 33-94 (58), 30-59, 58-50, 69-45, 67-24 (66) PARROTT (4) bt Williams (58) 9-8 Frame scores: 100-1 (54), 56-70, 14-94, 25-83 (74), 52-56, 89-0 (88), 14-79 (61), 56-8, 86-8, 78-7, 74-0 (50), 1-95 (95), 63-27, 72-33, 13-107 (75), 28-89, 65-29 DOHERTY (7) bt O'Brien (42) 9-4 Frame scores: 87-36, 78-1, 12-76, 107-7, 80-17, 17-64, 67-1, 16-55, 72-7, 59-43, 104-32 (104), 0-131 (87), 85-0 (85) D MORGAN (8) bt M King (89) 9-5 Frame scores: 51-80, 79-40, 23-66, 20-103 (81), 35-93 (54), 65-26, 73-51, 56-5 (51), 61-30, 9-82 (60), 100-0 (100), 70-9, 61-31, 62-37 O'SULLIVAN (9) bt GRIFFITHS (14) 9-5 Frame scores: 74-9 (69), 21-59, 39-57, 60-11, 6-82 (61), 80-21 (75), 88-32 (88), 76-8 (76), 7-125 (90), 70-50, 80-56 (64), 7-81 (76), 83-0 (58), 57-51 EBDON (10) bt Ferguson (27) 9-1 Frame scores: 78-21, 62-50, 103-15, 8-112 (91), 71-59 (54 Ferguson), 108-18 (70), 70-36, 97-6 (97), 80-0 (80), 84-9 (75) HAROLD (19) bt A Higgins (48) 9-4 Frame scores: 66-21, 2-86 (57), 70-7, 49-69, 112-1 (69), 48-52, 74-29, 63-46, 89-10, 72-45 (53), 67-56, 58-66, 61-31 (58)

Quarter-finals

Losers receiving 2025 pts.
HENDRY (1) bt D MORGAN (8) 9-3 Frame scores: 38-75 (67), 81-11 (69), 72-40, 5-90 (60), 94-24 (54), 100-0 (94), 73-32, 66-59 (59 Morgan), 89-3, 80-42, 21-73, 93-0 (93) Stephen Hendry needed only 48 minutes to improve his 6-2 lead into a 9-3 win. After the match, he confidently claimed: "I'm too good not to win the tournament." WATTANA (3) bt PARROTT (5) 9-5 Frame scores: 86-42, 14-65, 71-9 (70), 78-13 (78), 63-13, 19-94 (55), 76-0 (56), 4-89, 81-0 (60), 55-56 (54 Wattana), 16-82 (64), 113-0 (113), 60-52, 92-0 (92) DOHERTY (7) bt O'SULLIVAN (9) 9-7 Frame scores: 34-81 (63), 99-9 (60), 67-52, 15-81, 94-4 (94), 55-67, 14-66, 41-71, 80-39 (65), 0-113 (113), 15-48, 62-1 (57), 73-35, 93-0 (93), 17-73, 48-69 At the press conference after the match, Ronnie O'Sullivan threatened to quit snooker at the end of the year. A tearful O'Sullivan said: "If I don't feel I'm going to be the best at something I am not going to do it." "It's not something that I've just thought about. I have felt the same way for two years." "I'm going to have a couple of days off to see where I'm going to go. The way I feel at the moment, I will quit." Let's hope that Ronnie comes back to his sense soon. What a loss for snooker if he really deside to quit! EBDON (10) bt Harold (19) 9-5 Frame scores: 38-79, 17-84, 125-3 (125), 39-85 (75), 77-5 (69), 80-12, 1-74, 55-26, 124-1 (72,52), 0-88 (88), 82-0 (82), 72-9 (72), 51-43, 65-36.

He made an incredible seven centuries in the final, which is a record in a professional match. He also became the first player ever to make five centuries in seven frames. And his twelve tons in the championship is a record for the number of tons by one player in a tournament.
