THURSDAY'S EVENING SESSION
Barry Hawkins recovered from 4-0 down to trail John Higgins 5-3 in their World Championship semi-final.
Higgins raced out of the traps to take all four frames before the mid-interval break, but Hawkins rallied as breaks of 62 and 71 helped him win the next two.
In a nervy opening session where both players were guilty of missed attempts, Higgins took the penultimate frame before Hawkins ensured the Scot's lead was not too great going into Friday.
