His opponent in the match, Sam Craigie who beaten Jack Lisowski and David Grey in the previous rounds was in control in the first four frames. Craigie led Doherty for 4-0 and just one frame away from victory. However, the crafty Ken managed to win four frames in a row after mid session to level. In the decider, Doherty made 43 before Craigie made 44 to lead 58-43. But it was Ken the eventual winner of the 5-hour match on the final pink.
