Mark Selby delivered a crushing defeat to Mark Williams in their World Snooker Championship quarter final, triumphing 13-3 at the Crucible.
Williams was already up against it from the start of the session, trailing 6-2 from the previous day, but Selby refused to allow his opponent even a glimmer of hope.
The three-time world champion set about his task taking the first four frames of the day to open up a 10-2 lead.

Williams looked to salvage some pride with a 79 break to make it 10-3 but simply could not compete with his opponent on a miserable morning as Selby swept his way to victory with a session to spare.
Welshman Williams, who had created a number of talking points with his unique breaks was at it again with an eye-catching four-cushion shot at the start of the 15th frame which then beautifully nestled against the pack.
However, Selby was unfazed by the theatrics as he saw out the match, setting up a meeting with the winner of Anthony McGill and Stuart Bingham in the final four.
