World Snooker Championship Final - Kyren Wilson still in command but Jak Jones fights back.

The World Snooker Championship final appeared to be one sided as Kyren Wilson blazed to a 7-1 lead in the first session over Jak Jones. However the Welshman nicknamed the ‘Silent Assasin’ Jones recovered in the second session to close off at 11-6 after missing a glaring chance to go just three frames behind.

Kyren Wilson won a dramatic final frame of session two to secure an 11-6 lead over Jak Jones in the final of the World Championship. Wilson was utterly dominant in opening a 7-1 lead after Sunday afternoon’s first session.

Jones looked all at sea, but he returned in the evening far sharper and put Wilson under the cosh.

At the start of the evening, Jones’ aim would have been to win the opening mini-session. He had that chance in the 12th, but a poor shot choice cost him.

He elected to flick a red and play for the pink, when a better option would have been to screw back for the blue. The cannon did not work, and Wilson picked off a break of 60 to move 9-3 ahead.

Despite slipping six behind, Jones’ body language was positive and he hit back by taking the 13th. He needed three digs to get the frame won, but he played attacking shots to suggest he was still fighting.
