     Match Notes:

     Mark Selby finishes a very productive session 11-5 ahead of Hendry.

    Selby rolls in another big break to go five frames ahead of Hendry. Selby's scoring today is reminiscent of Hendry at his peak.

    Hendry's revival is brief as Selby powers throughthe next frame to lead 9-5, guaranteed to lead at the end of the session.

    At last Hendry gets a frame on the board. Maybe the interval will change his fortunes.

    Disaster for Hendry. He led by 60 points but let Selby in for a 62 clearance and he's lost all four frames of the morning so far.

    Two more forty plus breaks takes Selby further ahead. Hendry can't find any answers at the moment.

    Selby motors through another frame, leaving Hendry scoreless.

    Hendry missed a long range red on 19 and Selby has punished him to the tune of 96 to the pink

    Good morning. Welcome back. The match is beautifully poised but many people think Hendry may have let Selby off the hook a bit yesterday. We shall see as this morning's 8 frames get under way.

     Selby levels the match after an very entertaining eight frames.

     Selby's turn to steal a frame. He needed two snookers and got them.

     Hendry steals a frame after Selby broke down on 61, the seven times champion steps in with a 43 clearance to the pink.

     A re-rack to frame five has slowed down proceedings a bit.

     A fabulous century by Hendry and it's 2-2 at the first pit stop.

    Tremendous stuff so far. There's a 71 break to take Selby 2-1 ahead.

     Hendry strikes back in imperious manner and we have the makings of a classic match.

     Selby gets back in to clear up the opening frame.

     Good afternoon and welcome to another mouth-watering tie. Hendry stated well, but missed a thin black on 39 and Selby had countered with 52.
