The remaining place in the final of this year's LG Cup is to be decided tonight at Preston's Guild Hall.
Although Steve Davis was one of the few big names to avoid defeat in the early stages of last year's competition (he alone saw off Jimmy White , Mark Williams and Paul Hunter ), the six-times world champion eventually fell foul of Alan McManusin a marathon semi-final that ended 6-4 after nearly five hours' play.
