Defending champion Stuart Bingham won three frames in a row as he came from behind to book his place in the semi-finals of the Shanghai Masters with a 5-4 win over Martin Gould.
Bingham, who has been in sluggish form so far this season, hit a break of 60 in the final frame to set up a last-four clash with Judd Trump.
"I'm over the moon to get through because Martin outplayed me," Bingham said after the win. "I just hung in there and got the result.
"I'll have to improve to stand a chance to beat Judd. I'm not playing 100 per cent but I've got the grit and determination to get through matches."
Trump eased to a 5-1 quarter-final win over Mark Williams but felt he was a little off the pace following a hard-fought 5-4 victory over Matthew Selt the previous night.
"I didn't get much sleep after a late finish last night so maybe that's why I didn't play well," he said.
"It's always exciting to get down to one table and hopefully I can kick on."
Kyren Wilson edged home favourite Ding Junhui 5-4 and will play Mark Allen in the other semi-final, after the Northern Irishman claimed a 5-1 win over Mark Davis.
