     Notes:

    This match resumes on Monday morning.

    Gould succeeds in snatching the last frame and he'll probably now be the happier of the two players.

    Gould cracks in a ton to close to 5-3. He'd love to win the final frame now. It's a huge difference between 5-4 and 6-3.

    Marco Fu is looking better and better as the match develops. He's cueing sweetly and this is a thoroughly efficient performance this morning.

    Gould had a good chance to take the fifth frame. He potted a blinding yellow but didn't get position and Fu has cleared the colours.

    Fu cruises into a 3-1 lead at the interval.

    Gould opens his account with a 58 break.

    Good morning, welcome to a nice warm sunny Sheffield.

    Martin Gould looks resplendent in his asuithatfits.com suit but it's Marco Fu who gets his cue arm moving first with a silky break of 70.
    Notes:

    Gould holds his nerve to run in a match winning 90 break and is the first unseeded player into the last 16.

    Fu pots blue and pink to send us into a deciding frame.

    Gould extends his run to three frames and now takes a 9-8 lead. One frame needed for Gould to win, Marco needs to win the last two now.

    Gould has won two frames to level the match again. It's building towards a tense conclusion now.

    Fu has opened a two frame lead at a crucial stage of the match. A great break there to take him 8-6 ahead.

    And Gould levels again. This has the makings of a 10-9 either way.

    Fu regains the lead, winning a long scrappy frame.

    A blistering start by Martin Gould this morning. He's whacked in a century to level the match.
