After the players finished the afternoon session at 4-4 tie, Milkins won the opening frame of the evening session thanks to his break of 55. Murphy then tied the score with a run of 70 but during crunch moments of frame eleven, Murphy flubbed a difficult pot to the baulk corner, giving his rival the chance to regain the lead.
