Shaun Murphy made it through to the final of the williamhill.com UK Championship in sensational circumstances and at one point drifted to 12/1 to win the match with the sponsors (25/1 to win the tournament). The biggest bet placed on him to win the match from 8-4 down was just £20. Carter was a whopping 1/40 to win the match when he was 8-4 up.
He has become the first odds on favourite of the week to win the tournament with Selby 11/8 and Davis 7/1.
“We thought that there was no way back for Murphy and our punters certainly felt the same way,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Now that he is in the final, with the other semi still to play, he is now the clear favourite to win the tournament.”
Tournament winner: 10/11 Murphy; 11/8 Selby; 7/1 Davis
