Stephen Maguire takes on Mark Allen in the 2020 Tour Championship final on Friday. The contest will be a best-of-19-frame decider with the winner collecting a first prize of £150,000.

Stephen Maguire Form


Stephen Maguire began 2020 by reaching the Masters quarterfinals. He was knocked out by Judd Trump in the Welsh Open and Players Championship including a tight 6-5 loss in the semifinals.

Maguire withdrew from the Gibraltar Open and didn't participate in the Championship League. He was granted a place in the Tour Championship after Ding Junhui’s withdrawal.

The Scot hit six centuries including four in a row as he came back from 5-4 down to beat Neil Robertson 9-5 in the quarter-finals. Maguire said he played his best ever snooker in beating Robertson.

Stephen Maguire beat world number one Judd Trump 9-6 to reach the final of the Tour Championship. It was a sweet victory as it came a day after Trump said he felt Maguire lacked the mentality and dedication to reach his true potential.

If Maguire wins the Tour Championship he will pocket £150,000 and an additional £100,000 for winning the Coral Cup.

Mark Allen Form


Mark Allen began 2020 with early defeats in the Masters and World Grand Prix. He reached Round 3 at the Welsh Open before a Round 1 exit in the Shoot Out.

The world number five withdrew from the Gibraltar Open but contested the Championship League. He fell one frame short of progressing to the semi-finals after a 2-2 draw against Martin O'Donnell and 3-1 victories against Michael White and Nigel Bond. 

Allen beat Shaun Murphy 9-8 in the Tour Championship quarterfinals despite Murphy scoring six century breaks. He was 8-7 down but fought back to win the last two frames. 

Mark Allen booked his place in the Tour Championship final by beating three-time world champion Mark Selby 9-2. He raced to a 6-0 lead and was a deserved winner.
