Mark Selby of England poses with his trophy after winning the final match against David Gilbert of England on day seven of 2019 English Open at K2 Leisure Centre on October 20, 2019 in Crawley, England
He doubled his advantage in the next frame after capitalising on Selby's misfortune, inadvertently potting a red after going into the pack from the blue.

Lisowski, in free-flowing potting form and unafraid to take on almost any opportunity, made 55 to seal the second frame but karma balanced out Selby's misfortune almost immediately.
In similar circumstances, Lisowski cannoned into the pack and caught a red full ball, pocketing it in the middle. Selby needed no second invitation and got his name onto the scoreboard with a break of 78 and followed it with 75 to level the match shortly afterwards.
The mid-session interval saw the momentum shift again as Lisowski was not punished for missing a red in the middle but he was not given the same sort of clemency one frame later, as Selby cleared up to make the first century of the match.

And it would prove to be a turning point in the session as 'The Jester from Leicester' started to grind down his opponent in familiar fashion, picking up three consecutive frames to come from behind and lead 5-3, needing just four more to take the Scottish Open title.
Lisowski continued to peg his opponent back and the evening session saw Selby nudge ahead time and again, only to have to battle through on each occasion.
Finally, the decisive breakthrough came in the 15th frame of the match as he racked up 79 before Lisowski conceded to confirm Selby as the winner.
The three-times world champion was jubilant as he clinched his second title of the season and celebrated with his family.
