Ding Junhui four frames from victory after dominating first session with Mark Allen in UK Championship final

Date:

Ding Junhui is four frames away from winning the UK Championship after dismantling an off-colour Mark Allen in the opening session of the final.

The world No. 38 will return to the York Barbican at 19:00 GMT with a 6-2 lead, and chasing a first trophy in three years.

Ding has faded as a force since winning the UK title in 2019, reaching just one semi-final in the following three years as his game deserted him.
