Bingham loses 8-1 lead - but ultimately beats Dott 10-9

Stuart Bingham surrendered an 8-1 lead but ultimately resisted one of the great Crucible comebacks to beat fellow former champion Graeme Dott 10-9 in a gripping final-frame decider.

World number 21 Dott rattled off three rapid frames to get back to 8-4 and, despite unluckily losing frame 13, he recovered to win five frames in a row.

That run included a beleaguered Bingham losing frame 16 on the three-miss rule.

But although Dott forced the decider, Bingham somehow pulled through.

Elsewhere, world number seven Judd Trump trails 6-3 against Thailand's world number 43 Thepchaiya Un-Nooh.

And world number six Mark Allen is 7-2 down against world number 35 Zhou Yuelong of China.
