    Graeme Dott is really enjoying himself in this match. He's found time to share a little joke with a fan in the front row before getting down to slot a long red home and at 5-1 up he knows he'll lead overnight.

    Dott is really motoring now. He's flown through frame 5 and leads 4-1.

    Dott opens a 3-1 lead. Ebdon hasn't done much wrong but Dott is taking the chances better at the moment.

    A brilliant century from Dott to level the scores.

    First blood to Ebdon in a 32 minute opening frame.

    Good evening and welcome to a rematch of the 2006 final.


    Graeme Dott secures victory.

    Ebdon wins the frame before the interval but he nearly threw it away, missing a long red. But he got away with it.

    Oh dear how relieved will Dott be. He let Ebdon to the table 67-0 down and Ebdon made 46 before missing the green and Dott clear up. A pivotal moment in the match maybe as that's halted Ebdon's momentum tonight.

    Did I say a while! It's going to take a lot longer now as after 30 minutes they've decided to have a re-rack!

    This frame could take a while now. They've got the black in the jaws and all the reds surroundign it.

    Ebdon's pulled another frame back and Dott has broken down on 39 in the next.

    A gutsy 72 clearance from 49-0 down gives Ebdon the first frame of the night.

    Peter Ebdon has a mountain to climb tonight and if he fails he will drop out of the Top Sixteen for the first time since he gained a place way back in 1994.

    His ooponent, Graeme Dott, needs to reach at least the semi finals here to regain his place. He currently stands provisionally at Number 18.
