The Final cued off with Imtiaz reeling in frame after frame, spurring ahead quickly into a comfortable 3-0 lead and requiring only 1 more frame to seal the match. Rory managed a scrappy Frame 4 to close the gap to 2 frames and continued to do so with a 111 break in Frame 5.
With the lead now narrowed to 1 frame, Imtiaz tried to take Frame 6 and match but was careless in his shots, allowing Rory to win the frame on the Black.
Imtiaz dominated in the early part of Frame 7 but soon see his grip loosen as Rory clawed back ball by ball and eventually won the match on the Brown, making one of the greatest comeback in the Championship.
