UK final perfectly poised

The UK championship final in York is perfectly poised as finalists Steven Hendry and Peter Ebdon are all square after the first session. Both players are 4 frames a piece as the first 8 frames were shared even with some nailbiting safety exchanges and precision potting from both camps. Hendry won the first frame racking up a break over 50 to secure an early lead. Ebdon managed to come out fighting in the second to make it 1 - 1. Steven then reeled off another two frames to go into the mid session interval 3 - 1 But Ebdon came out fighting in the next and reeled off a remarkable 3 frames to reduce his arrears levelling the match. Both players have been playing the best snooker of their lives this week as the final session expects to be a titanic tussle reminiscent of the World Championship of four years ago which went down to the wire with Ebdon defeating the seven times World Champion Hendry.
