Alfie Burden also into the quarter-finals - only for the 3rd time in his 21 year professional career.
And they've all come this season!
That's a statistic the 'weak era' fans will love!
I see Nigel "weak era" Bond's also in the quater's.
His 2nd quarter-final this season, after 14 years since he previously reached the last 8 in a ranking event!
Not bad for a 51-year-old!
And with a Burden v Bond quarter-final, Alfie could reach his first semi in his 21 year career, at 40 years of age - or, Nigel will make a semi for the first time since 1997!
