Tyler seemed to be maintaining his form by taking the first two frames of the final with Ben looking below par. However, Ben seemed to find a new lease of life and took the next two frames to make it all square. In the final frame Ben was in first with a break of 33. Tyler clawed back the lead making 19 then 14 and 15 to put him 15 points in front with one red left. After some safety play Ben took his chance and made 26 to the pink to win the match and deny Tyler the birthday present he was looking for.
