Jordan Brown lifts the Ray Reardon trophy as confetti pours over him Ronnie O’Sullivan, who paid tribute to how Jordan played today in his interview, looks on and claps with a smile He knows a player , and he knows when he’s been beaten fair and square.It’s one of the biggest upsets we’ve ever seen in a major final, and who knows what Jordan could achieve from here? ‘Don’t stop believing in yourself,’ he says via Andy Goldstein in the Eurosport studio If he continues to believe in himself and play like he did at Celtic Manor this week, Brown is fine

If that doesn’t lift your soul, nothing will. What a fantastic victory, and so well deserved Jordan Brown survived every scintilla of what Mark Selby could throw at him on Friday and wiped out Stephen Maguire yesterday to reach the final Today ‘hui, he beat the greatest player who ever played this game to win his first ranking event title.Five years ago he was working at a gas station part-time, not knowing if he would even continue the game on points Now, at 33, he won one of the most prestigious ranking events on the World Snooker Tour He holds back tears in his interview with Rob Walker What a performance What a player!

Oh, he hits the air as they come in now, so he should He takes his break at 74 before he stops with three reds still out there Ronnie concedes, and what a moment folks – Jordan Brown , ranked number 81 in the world, shocked the world and beat Ronnie to win the Welsh Open!

It’s getting closer A red at the bottom right followed by the pink takes a break at 65, with 67 remaining Brown takes a deep breath and lines up the frame ball, and the red enters the heart from the bottom right! Jordan Brown will win the Welsh Open!

Brown’s temper has been his biggest asset all week, and he’ll need it here He almost misses black when he gets to 40, leaving a tough red in the middle left to continue He drops it, but ends up Just when he needs a big recovery shot, Brown finds one, cutting the bruise down the middle right and coming out of the top cushion to land plum on his next red

This is the ninth decisive frame in the history of the Welsh Open final; Ronnie won two and lost one He gets an incredible touch with his first shot, as he misses a red wildly and throws it in the yellow pocket He can’t follow it with the green though, and Brown comes in with a red midrange to lower right One chance is all you ask of a decision maker, and Brown has taken three reds and blacks with his so far

The answer of a champion; a total game of 119 brings the match level Brown can still be a champion here too, as we have a one-frame shootout for the upcoming Welsh Open title!

The green leads O’Sullivan to 60 with 59 left. He made a position on one of four reds near black too; we go to a decision maker

Considering the circumstances, this is a freewheeling effort from the world champion.A sensational blue, just around the angles of three cushions in and out of baulk to land on his next red, might just be the shot of the match It was hard work, but it shaped a chance to take this match to the end

The margins in this game, yikes Bad O’Sullivan’s security hits brown, sending white behind yellow and leaving Brown snooked from bare millimeters on a red in the middle left and one in the bottom right My oh my! Jordan tries to get around the latter’s yellow and pot, but misses it and leaves it for O’Sullivan It’s luck, and a long, shiny blue from Ronnie at the start of the break keeps him going so he approaches dangerously entry-off while playing in the peloton, and chooses a superb pot of recovery on a red bottom right to regain his position These are exciting things

He needed to punish O’Sullivan’s mistake, and he did. A 56 break puts Brown in a picture of a sensational win!

O’Sullivan passes a rose in the lower right, and what luck it is now for Brown! Ronnie is furious with himself, and Jordan just has to punish him if he wants to win the title His break quickly reaches 41, and when repotting the pink he brings the final red frame ball from the bottom pad and into the Shot position, Jordan!

Good safety from Brown forces an error from O’Sullivan, who peeks out of the field from a deadweight breakout and leaves a red down left Brown is 13, but misses a green clumsy with the rest Ronnie has a chance, and two awesome blues at the start of his break create some momentum Form a third, he blows the pack open, releasing the pink and conjuring up a big chance to win the frame

A break of 58 leaves Brown 64 behind with 51 left in there He makes it and we’re all square It’s best of the three now for the Ray Reardon Trophy

It’s a master class to ride for blue; it’s half a century for O’Sullivan and Brown now needs a snooker What an exceptional break

A poor containing safety leaves Ronnie a red in the left middle, but he can only make six with the opportunity Jordan throws another at him after a good safety from O’Sullivan forces a mistake, and he cut a red at the bottom left It’s a tough table with the pink and black tied up, but he’s now released after breaking up the pack and it’s all there for O’Sullivan now

A shiny pool table from O’Sullivan leads Brown to hit black on his breakout It’s a flat chance for Ronnie, but he misses a shock of a red in the lower left and he left Jordan in Oh my God, that’s huge at this point Brown calmly wipes out the remaining reds and everything, and he’s back in front!

Ronnie responds with 17, but taking a thin cut on a black southpaw while applying a heavy side, he doesn’t get enough through the shot, and he fails to go down right From there, Jordan puts a devilish billiard behind the green O’Sullivan misses his first attempt, before sending a wild thrash straight into the pink and sending reds everywhere Brown is in the game and has a good chance of picking up the game. header He adds 16 but has lost his position and must play again carefully

Jordan sweeps in a lonely red at the start of the 13th frame, then walks in for real to get the decent first chance to score It’s been 25 years before you need to play it safe, and it’s a bad game – he throws the white ball into the blue and he gave O’Sullivan a chance

Both players were out of luck on the green, before Brown plugged it in the middle left Brown also called, followed by a fluked snooker that forced O’Sullivan to concede the frame A courageous take by Jordan just before the interval, and when we come back in 15 minutes, it’s the best of five for the Welsh Open title

Brown takes another red down, but misses one in the yellow pocket after a smash and Ronnie’s hope of escaping a snooker He sits on said pocket for Ronnie, and he quickly clears all four last reds with great value colors before going up for yellow These are the colors needed to nick a crucial frame He can’t be well on the green after you potty the yellow and play pool; Jordan hits blue trying to escape, and he is put back in place. He logs in on the second attempt, but serves him down right, and Ronnie missed him! That’s a whopping 25 points

A chance for Brown to seal it as Ronnie leaves a red on the right midfielder In it’s okay, followed by brown, then a great red from outside the middle of the pack to the lower left He went back past the retaining line with white and playing pool behind the green Ronnie gives up eight fouls before connecting with one of the remaining five reds and putting him to safety

A brilliant salvage pot on a red in the right middle keeps Brown’s break after his split from the peloton did not yield great results He missed a tough bruise in the green pocket with the rest, and O ‘Sullivan has a chance to block but can only take red-blue before having to play it safe

It was a tough hour for Brown, but he chooses a nice plant at the start of the twelfth followed by a right brown in the middle left He’s now in and around the black and he has a good chance of fighting back and climbing up. level here

O’Sullivan goes his half-century to let Jordan need a snooker, then slips a red into the yellow pocket to make sure his opponent doesn’t come back. A total of 61 guys another fast-firing frame; for the first time today, O’Sullivan leads this final

The break hits 41 and takes O’Sullivan over 50 for the frame Ronnie is spoiled for choice on the reds, and won’t need two awkward people to the right of the table to win that frame

Ronnie hits a red bottom right in the eleventh, which slams furiously but doesn’t fall Brown shakes him too, leaving O’Sullivan to put him away with the rest He makes 10, but a tight cut on the black at the bottom to right with the rest stays in the jaws and that’s a reprieve for Brown In response he makes an eight, but after splitting the pack he’s not on a red other than a plant in the middle left It doesn’t appear go, and it turns out to be true; O’Sullivan is back, with the table at his mercy

There is a red frame ball; there will be four images out of the last five that have followed Ronnie shortly He took a punch in the first mini-session of the day, but he can’t stay half there while waiting for his A game to join the Party

O’Sullivan already looks like a different player tonight His break goes up to 40, including a nice cut on the blue in the left-handed yellow pocket

A great long red from O’Sullivan, right barrel at bottom left, takes him forward in tenth This is tough work at first with the pink and black attached, but he sews a few stitches together using blue

Ronnie brings the yellow and green down a few strokes later A shiny cut on brown in the green pocket with the rest puts it right on blue, and he wipes that and pink to gain a crucial frame


Brown shoots the level in the frame before trying some pool on final red O’Sullivan serves him, but Jordan can only pot red-blue before losing his position on yellow Those are six huge flushes now

/ p>

Brown responds with 18 before failing to fall behind two reds near the right cushion and have to play it safe O’Sullivan gets a red solitaire down, then blows a chance to cut into a red and take controlling the frame after a Brown foul This could be a great moment as he left the frame here Ronnie doesn’t pay for it as Brown loses his position on the pink and has to play cautiously; disjointed stuff so far

Ronnie is first, draining a midrange red to move the table up for the green A swift 32 puts him in command here and after splitting the platoon from the rose, which is currently housed on the black dot, he has developed a good chance A pot later although the black is missing in the yellow pocket, and this is a chance for Brown

Our MC Phil Seymour introduces players Jordan needs four, Ronnie needs six Let’s get out of this Welsh Open final

If Jordan Brown does achieve this victory, he will take his first-ever Ranking Title and join Mark Allen, Dennis Taylor and Alex Higgins on the Northern Ireland Ranking Events Winners List If Ronnie can win the title, it will be his fifth Welsh Open crown, tying the record currently held by John Higgins

Welcome back to live coverage of the Welsh Open final World number 81 Jordan Brown is five-ninths on the way to a stunning reversal after dominating the afternoon session against Ronnie O ‘ Sullivan 5-3 We will be here to guide you until the end of the tournament, with the players who will be re-baizé at 700h

It was a fascinating session, and you suspect Ronnie O’Sullivan is happy to come out of that only two behind Jordan Brown looks completely unfazed and reacted well to O’Sullivan’s return to take what could be a crucial last pic of the afternoon He has a two-frame lead for the evening session; if he can win four more frames, he will be the Welsh Open champion. If he can locate the form he showed earlier in the week, O’Sullivan will have something to say about it

It takes a few bites, but Brown comes in to brilliantly erase the last two reds, moving the last one off the side rail, as part of a 36 that wins the frame

Brown breaks the deadlock with a long red, but can only add a yellow before missing the follow-up red Ronnie also takes a red fluff and leaves Brown hidden behind the yellow afterwards It’s tense – you can feel both players realizing how important this could be to the game as a whole – and Brown takes the lead when O’Sullivan leaves Brown connects an easy red, then a sensational long Chance blue

O’Sullivan slowly rolls a red into the green pocket, but then can’t develop any more reds on the pink.The remaining seven reds are clustered near the bottom pad, and we’re going to have some cat and mouse before that this is not resolved

Brown runs his escape trying to rest on the peloton, but only leaves a loose ball He’s on the side too, and he made a nice opening here The pink and black are currently tied up, but he can come right back into the frame during this visit Trying to force the position on black although a cannon is missing intended to land it on black and it is the end of the break on 11

O’Sullivan places a long red down the left, screwing up to land on the blue It’s a good shot, and he rolls again in eighth Le 24, although an attempt to split the peloton does not Not going as planned, and he’s on nothing.Instead, he’s playing excellent security to trap Jordan behind the green

It’s tons in a row for Ronnie, as he sets everything up for a 121 Brown played superbly to reach 4-1, but all O’Sullivan’s credit rocked a miserable start to retaliate. image to play this afternoon, and that’s a big deal

O’Sullivan is on a rumbling here; another half-century is in the bank and he’s pacing around the table It’s a few bullets away to get another one

Brown misses a midrange red by far and leaves an easy starter for Ronnie in the lower right.It’s a tough job at first, and he’s on his way back to his chair when a red in the middle right seems to be drifting, but pretty much hooks in the edge of the pocket O’Sullivan has the break under control now, and that’s good luck

Oof, what a lack that could be; Ronnie misses a cut on a red in the lower right, and he left it there for Jordan.In response, Brown can only make 14 before a loose positional shot from the blue ends his break It’s a bit disappointing for O’Sullivan

O’Sullivan belatedly asks referee Ben Williams what the tournament’s highest break is. It’s Zhao Xintong’s 143; the moment Ronnie asked that there wasn’t enough left to beat him, but he rolls a 135 to finally locate his best form in this game

“It’s a bit late!” – O’Sullivan leaves too late to ask an important question of the referee

Ronnie prefers to win the frame and soon plays for the pink Bah! Quite understandable given the state of the match he’s home soon and hosed down in this setting, and this might just be the filip he needed

If you like to be horny, be horny; it’s six reds with blacks now and he’s developed well the pack O’Sullivan did a 147 against Ding Junhui in the final here seven years ago, including perhaps the biggest shot in history when he stuck a red in the green pocket to return for black Will he get the maxi here?

Brown misses a plant in the lower right at the start of the fifth, and he left the red on the pocket for O’Sullivan It’s lucky, and Ronnie could really do with a one shot image here to stop Brown’s momentum It’s three reds and blacks so far

107 break extends Brown’s lead He shocked Mark Selby on Friday and beat Stephen Maguire yesterday; today he far surpasses the greatest player of all time

The red frame ball is delicately deposited in the middle right, and it’s on the pink If Brown had dreamed last night of how he would start this finale, he probably would have had something like this

It’s half a century for Brown, whose composure has been impressive all week and the rest here A 4-1 lead seems nailed down here, and the momentum in this game will be about O’Sullivan

We’re back, and a good security from Brown forces an error from O’Sullivan, who misjudges a windfall security and leaves Jordan a red bottom right He is out again, and survives a heart-in-mouth moment where black only falls after wobbling in the lower left jaws It’s 30 and it counts so far

Great stuff from Brown, which lightens to pink for a 78 and heads in between It was a nightmarish mini-session for Ronnie, but a dream start for Jordan

Brown is back with a red in the middle on the left, and has a great chance to enter the gap in front.A blue in the middle on the left puts him 77 in front with 75 on the left, and a red in the middle reach thereafter ensures that O’Sullivan will not return to the table

A very precise break from Brown hits 32 Reds are spread out but not too far apart, so it takes some tricky position play to keep it going After another black he takes off, landing touching the ball on a red and not his planned lower right option Brown is playing cautiously, and he will be annoyed that he didn’t convert that chance

Brown scores in a long red to start the fourth, and from his next snooker, O’Sullivan gives up 19 points before leaving brown a red along the bottom pad It’s okay, and he’s on black

Lucky, lucky boy! On 59, Ronnie wildly misses a red but the jaw spell, another red, off the right rail and in the middle left He goes on to secure the frame, but my oh my he had contact there

A quick turn of the tap, and O’Sullivan has arrived in that final He slams in half a century in barely anytime, and there’s an open charge left for him, too

What a match it has been for Brown so far; he looked nervous at first, but he was really punished for a bad start from O’Sullivan It doesn’t immediately get better for Ronnie either, as he falls into a long red in the third but fails to land on a weak color It may be that now, as it rumbles in a long red, releases the pink and lands on an easy blue

Brown’s 58 break leaves Ronnie in need of two snookers with a red left on the table O’Sullivan finally concedes when Brown traps him in a snooker

Brown is making hay here and the Reds are well set to win the frame on this visit His break hits 46 with a black in the lower left and he’s zoning with a 2-0 lead here

Ronnie’s endless fourth of the day gives Brown an easy long red, but he can’t force black’s position from it.He’s back quickly, but misses a red to leave Ronnie in the balls and with a chance to settle in the game A rose is missing in the middle left on 25 though, and Brown is back

Jordan sneaks into the yellow and puts a pool on the green O’Sullivan concedes and Brown hits the front

This one is a bit messy Brown goes 15 but loses his position, before coming back after poor safety from Ronnie Excellent shot on yellow does it well on the final, red frame ball, and he pierces it bottom left Pink is missing afterwards, and with a pool table required, O’Sullivan will play on

A monstrous kick to a red midfielder on the left leaves O’Sullivan a tough blue-to-green pocket with the rest, and he missed it Brown can’t take advantage of it and misses a relatively simple red on the bottom right He looks a little nervous for now, but returns to the table when O’Sullivan leaves.After a safety shootout, Ronnie sends white for the third time and he gave Brown an easy start

It’s lucky for Brown as O’Sullivan walks in, but he can’t convert a lower left red and he left O’Sullivan A 14 break ends when he splits the reds but ends up snooker on his next shot planned by the ironed pink He’s right back after Brown double-kissed a red while trying to play it safe

O’Sullivan misses his first effort on a long red, allowing Brown to clip a red into the green pocket with the rest He scores 16 but does not come high enough on a position shot on black and has to play cautiously

Our presenter Phil Seymour introduces the players Jordan enters Two Tribes, Ronnie to Drops of Jupiter Some pics with the trohpy later and it’s Jordan Brown to smash The best of 17 for the Welsh Open title so let’s go

Angles and the Wind here, on how Brown could be successful today

Against the greatest of all time, world number 81 Jordan Brown He’s had quite the 2021 so far A few weeks ago he reached the quarter-finals of the German Masters, his best run in a ranking event, and at Celtic Manor this week he sent Mark Selby in a dramatic quarterfinal that went to the black final He backed that up by flattening Stephen Maguire 6-1 to reach the final, so he’s a fit player.

Ronnie O’Sullivan enters final in brilliant form At Celtic Manor this week, he won 21 of 23 frames he has played, having found the kind of form that saw him take the world title last august If he can win here today, he will win his fifth Welsh Open title, tying John Higgins’ record in that event

Snooker was not invented in Wales, but the nation has left an indelible mark on the game They have given us two of the greatest of all time, Ray Reardon and Mark Williams; a world champion in his debut in Crucible to Terry Griffiths; Triple Crown Winners in Matthew Stevens and the late Doug Mountjoy and Ranking Event Winners Dominic Dale, Ryan Day and Michael White

But Wales don’t just decorate the game with great players Each year as the last blast of winter breaks loose they host the Welsh Open This is the 30th edition of a event that became one of the blue chip tournaments outside of the Triple Crown If you don’t believe me check out this call from past winners: Steve Davis, Stephen Hendry, Ronnie O’Sullivan, John Higgins, Mark Williams, Ken Doherty , Paul Hunter, Mark Selby, Neil Robertson, Shaun Murphy, Ding Junhui

This is important Other Home Nations Series titles in England, Northern Ireland and Scotland might offer the same money, but they don’t offer the same cachet Win this and you really won something Ronnie O ‘Sullivan and Jordan Brown will be on fire shortly to sort 2021 title

Despite the overall nature of his semi-final victory, O’Sullivan had mixed feelings about his performance against Mark Williams However, he believes that if he plays well “he can do damage” He added that he will not be distracted by his status as a big favorite for the match between the two

Brown is ranked 81st and O’Sullivan is the current World Champion Anything but a simple win would be a surprise to observers, but he was reluctant to look too far beyond his own game, but added that he felt that when he played well he could “do damage”

Speaking to Eurosport’s Andy Goldstein and Jimmy White after the game, O’Sullivan, 45, had mixed feelings about his current form

“I didn’t feel like I was acting like I had been in Milton Keynes, and the first games last week, but the new catch allows me to place some really good shots, which allows my game to control the table, rather than just playing mediocre stuff, ”he explained

Despite his complete victory, O’Sullivan said he didn’t feel capable of scoring for more than a century

“I just played balls If I could have hit in six, seven tons, I would have gone for that,” he says

“But there were times when I didn’t see it well and I missed a few every now and then I could hammer my advantage
