The final of UK Open Qualifier 3 is set with Michael Smith taking on Zoran Lerchbacher. Smith is of course the favourite to win the title having been in the final on Friday and having a superior ranking but won’t have it all his own way against ‘The Hypercane’.

Smith ended up winning against David Pallett who was having his best run in a tournament since 2015 and wouldn’t relent until Smith broke him then went onto win with a 132 checkout.

His opponent Zoran Lerchbacher reached a final on the ProTour and he will be in yet another one after defeating John Henderson 6-4.

Neither player showed the standard they have been producing for most of today but Zoran did enough to be victorious against ‘The Highlander’ in Wigan.

Last Four
Michael Smith 6 | 4 David Pallett
John Henderson 4 | 6 Zoran Lerchbacher
