Ronnie O'Sullivan claimed the Shanghai Masters title for a third straight year following an 11-9 victory over Shaun Murphy.
O'Sullivan, playing his first event since the World Championship in April, recovered from a scratchy start where he lost the first three frames.
He reeled off breaks of 61, 54, 78 and 53 to tie the first session at 5-5.
Murphy nosed back ahead 7-6 with breaks of 66, 61 and 111.
But a brilliant 130 from O'Sullivan started a run of four winning frames.
Murphy kept his hopes alive with accomplished visits of 82 and 90, but O'Sullivan finished with a break of 86 to take the £200,000 top prize.
