Ronnie O'Sullivan will go toe to toe with world number one Neil Robertson for a place in the final of the Masters at the Alexandra Palace. 

"The Rocket" beat Hong Kong's Marco Fu 6-1 to reach the semi final. He also broke Stephen Hendry's record of century breaks in the first frame of that match. 

Meanwhile, Robertson eased passed Ali Carter, also winning 6-1 to set up an intriguing tie in the semi final.


The world number one had an astonishing 97% pot success rate against Carter and is now looking to win his second Masters title.
