The Scot was 8-7 down in the match, but came back in style. In the final frame he trailed 54-43 when he potted an excellent final red, followed by a blue and the colours to clinch the �40,000 first prize, plus the �5,000 for the highest break, a 139 against Peter Ebdon in the semi-final.

Ken Doherty finished runner-up for the second time this season. Last year he lost out to John Higgins in the German Open final.
