Neil Robertson stormed to victory in Championship League Group One at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on Wednesday.
The Australian won four out of his six round-robin fixtures to top the league stage and advance to the semi-finals.
In the last four, Robertson compiled a 128 in dispatching Anthony Hamilton 3-0 – avenging his defeat to the “Sheriff” earlier in the competition.
Robertson subsequently matched the whitewash scoreline in the final when breaks of 115 and 110 helped him see off Jack Lisowski.
The Riga Masters champion, an event in which he also beat Lisowski in the final at the outset of the 2018/19 campaign, now advances to the Winners’ Group in March.
The 36 year-old’s 139 against Hamilton in the round-robin phase represented his 600th career century break.
Indeed, Robertson accounted for six out of the eight tons that were compiled across the first couple of days action.
Robertson collected £6,800 for his efforts – £3,000 for winning the group, £3,300 for the frames he won, and an additional £500 for making the highest break.
It’s a positive start to the year for the Melbourne man, who on Christmas Day got engaged to long-term partner Mille.

Lisowski, Hamilton, beaten semi-finalist Ricky Walden, and fifth placed Jimmy Robertson all have another chance when they take part in Group Two on Thursday and Friday.
The quartet will be joined by Kyren Wilson, Luca Brecel, and three-time champion Judd Trump.
Robert Milkins and Mark King, who had led Championship League Group One overnight but lost all three of his ties on the second day, are eliminated after finishing in the bottom two.
