Top class performance by Mark Selby. Maflin was very good, as well, but on the 7th frame he threw away the opportunities he had (most of them because of luck) and Selby made the decisive step for the victory.
I've also just seen the frame scores - appears to have been a very high quality match. Looking ahead to the second semi, I admit I don't know a great deal about Gary Wilson. I've only just discovered he's been on the main tour before but dropped off. I can't say I remember anything about him from then - did he do anything noteworthy, like even reach a venue? He's a good example though, that dropping off the tour need not necessarily being the end of one's pro ambitions.
