World Snooker Championship: Stuart Bingham and Jak Jones 4-4 in semi-final

Written by on May 3, 2024

A capacity crowd at the Crucible Theatre were treated to some excellent attacking snooker from Gilbert and Wilson in a brisk affair.

Wilson laid the platform with 73 in the first frame and also compiled 87, 67 and an 88 in the final frame, when he potted 11 reds and 11 blacks before breaking down in his pursuit of the first 147 maximum break of the main-draw tournament.

Speaking on BBC Two, Wilson said he had been rebuked by his brother Taylor for attempting the 147 rather than focusing on winning the frame.

“My brother told me off,” he said.

“You want to perform for the crowd and that’s why I tried for a cheeky 147. It would have been so special to make it in front of my boys.

“It was a good session, very open and attacking. There were lots of good breaks.”

For his part, world number 31 Gilbert constructed a superb 104, and breaks of 91 and 74.

Gilbert’s previous appearance in the last four at the Crucible came in 2019, while world number 12 Wilson reached the final in 2020.

Their match will resume at 10:00 on Friday.
