Frame 6: Andy won the safety battle but missed a difficult early yellow which was thw only available colour after the split. Bieniek secured the frame with a 110 break.

Frame 7 - The decider: Tense safety play early on, particularly after Bieniek attempted a long pot which left a red open but safe. Andy took on a reasonably difficult red to the middle and sank it. The split tied up the black and left an awkward table with many balls blocking each other. On 58, trouble loomed after hitting the reds open again, with only the pink available and no obvious safety. With the white below the black spot, Andy smashed the pink into the green pocket. A nervous shot, but one that secured the chance to win the farme, which was completed with a 118 total clearance.

Thanks for a great game and good luck.
