Going in to the third session at this year's Betfred.com World Snooker Championship Ali Carter was 7-10 down overnight and needed to get off to a good start to stand a chance against Ronnie O'Sullivan who looks to be back to near his very best.
However for the Captain he had a nightmare start as O'Sullivan made a 101 in the first frame and then won the next three in a row with top runs of 34 and 54 to go seven clear at 14-7.
When they resumed from the mid-session interval, Carter won the scrappy 22th frame then kept his hopes alive to win the next two with a fantastic 105 and a 53 to reduce the deficit.

O'Sullivan found his feet straight again in the last frame with runs of 64 and 55 to make the match 15-10 at the end of the penultimate session. The Rocket only needs three frames tonight to lift the World Championship trophy for the fourth time in his career, only becoming the 5th player to do so.
The match resumes at 7.30PM tonight, can Carter produce one of the most memorable comebacks the Crucible has seen tonight and beat O'Sullivan for the first time in his career? It will be a tough task but he has had some great wins already this tournament and I wouldn't rule him out just yet.
