World Seniors Championship

WATCH: World Seniors Championship Semi-Finals

Friday marks the final day of action in the 2017 World Seniors Championship with the last four contenders battling it out for the title in Scunthorpe.

Top seed Stephen Hendry plays Peter Lines in what many believe will ultimately decide the outcome of the tournament, but 1991 world champion John Parrott and second qualifier Jonathan Bagley will have different ideas in the first last four clash.

The opening two days at The Bath Halls were bludgeoned with streaming issues Рwhich initially solely came via China Рin Ireland and the U.K. but hopefully that has been sorted for today with the addition of the live broadcast via YouTube.

Incidentally, that first stream evidently has gone down quite well in China with Snooker Legends promoter Jason Francis revealing on Twitter that viewers on the Superstar app peaked at 260,000 yesterday in the Far East nation.

Anyway, the YouTube video for this afternoon’s semi-finals is below – who will emerge with the ¬£10,000 and a ticket into the World Championship qualifying at Ponds Forge?

First match begins at 1pm GMT.
