Ronnie O'Sullivan produced some of the magic that enabled him to win four world titles as the defending champion took a 9-7 lead over Ali Carter in their World Championship second-round clash on Sunday.
O'Sullivan held a 5-3 lead from the first session at the Crucible, but he was under pressure as Carter hit back to level at 7-7.
That prompted O'Sullivan, who has spent much of the last 12 months away from snooker, to demonstrate why he remains the world's best player.
O'Sullivan, who has beaten Carter in two Crucible finals, regained the lead with a fluent 73 break.
