Zhao Xintong booked his place in the German Masters final on Saturday afternoon, winning the last five frames against Ricky Walden.
Xintong surprisingly eased his way to the semi-final after beating world No.2 Judd Trump in the previous round, but the 24-year-old found himself down early on.
Walden claimed a 3-1 lead before the interval of Saturday's match-up at the Tempodrom.
However, Xintong clinched the fifth frame 63-60, which turned out to be the catalyst for a comeback.
Shortly after, Xintong followed it up with two half-century breaks and a clearance of 100 in the ninth frame to secure a 6-3 victory.
Now in the final, Xintong will face his compatriot Yan Bingtao, who also enjoyed a dramatic finish to his semi-final.
Bingtao also fell behind early in his match, as opponent Mark Allen took a 2-1 lead.
But, the 2021 Masters champion made clearances of 116 and 53 as he built up a 4-2 lead.
Allen managed to reduce the deficit with a century, but Bingtao took the eighth frame to move himself closer to victory.
Allen again clawed his way back into contention, and both made mistakes during a tense finale, but world No.15 Bingtao eventually claimed a 6-4 win.
The all-Chinese final will be played over two sessions on Sunday, January 30.
