Murphy gets out of that one, but presents an easy red and that should be that for this frame. A safety exchange now, like the days of yore. Or that last frame. Make this one a little snappier though lads, eh? Murphy sinks a good red, followed by a powerful pink which he puts plenty of fizz on to try and shift two reds by the right cushion.
He does, but not far enough, and he has to settle for a very good safety in baulk. Some balance in the lookalike stakes from Matt Dony: Murphy tries a very risky red down the right cushion He sinks that, get the positional shot a bit wrong so only leaves himself a pink, followed by a double He misses a long pot into the top left and by a fair way, too , which nearly flukes into the middle right.
Bingham playing with much more fluidity now. He had Murphy on the ropes for the last third of that epic minuter, which seems to have boosted his confidence a little more.
