Tom Ford books place in International Championship final

England’s Tom Ford reached reach the final of the International Championship after nailing three centuries in succession as he beat Northern Ireland’s Jordan Brown 9-6 in Tianjin.

Ford lost the first three frames in Tianjin and only took the lead for the first time in the match with breaks of 133 and 101 either side of the interval midway through the evening session.
