Mark Selby storms to victory at the World Snooker Tour Classic in Leicester

Former world champion Mark Selby showed his resiliency to win three matches in one day to claim the WST Classic title on home soil in Leicester.

Selby made three centuries as he defeated China's Pang Junxu 6-2 in the final at Morningside Arena to win the first prize of £80,000.
Pang did not score a single point in the first two frames as Selby compiled breaks of 104 and 138 and the 39-year-old Englishman also made 120 in frame five to lead 4-1.
Although Pang won frame six to reduce his deficit, Selby took the next two to complete the ideal warm-up ahead of next month's World Championship in Sheffield.
Selby had earlier beaten John Higgins 4-2 in the quarter-finals before thrashing Ali Carter 5-0 in the last four, with breaks of 95, 138, 65 and 89 helping restrict Carter to a total of just 50 points in the match.
Pang had conceded just one point in the last two frames as he came from 3-2 down to beat Oliver Lines in the quarter-finals and then made breaks of 91 and 68 in the last two to defeat Gary Wilson 5-4 in their semi-final.
