This is nothing short of being a very unexpected semi-final line up. In one corner you have David Gilbert who is the 11th seed and making his debut at the Masters.

In the other, there is 12th seed Stuart Bingham. Remarkably from a field of just sixteen, just one top ten players managed to make it to the final four. It’s an outsiders line up.

Can Debutant Gilbert reach the Final?

Bookmakers are having a hard time splitting Gilbert and Bingham for this Masters 2020 Semi-Final. Gilbert, who filled Ronnie O’Sullivan’s spot in the draw after the former champion withdrew, has made the most of his opportunity.

6/1

Gilbert opened with a crushing 6-1 victory over 6th seed Mark Allen in the first round. Then he powered his way to a 6-2 success over Stephen Maguire in the quarter-finals. That’s been a highly impressive production rate from him and he has looked unflappable.

In his semi-final, Gilbert rattled off a tournament-high 144 break in the first frame of the contest. That set him on his way and he raced away to open up a 4-1 lead and the Derby potter was untroubled in closing out the match.

Battling Bingham edges Wilson

After dumping second seed Mark Williams out in the first round, facing Stuart Bingham in the quarters was Kyren Wilson. Bingham raised a fightback in that semi-final fixture. He really looked to be on his way out as he was trailing 4-1 in the fixture.

But he came on strong to reach the final four of the tournament for just the second time in his career. The previous occasion was in 2016 where he lost, but that is the only time prior to this effort that he had made it past the first round.

David Gilbert v Stuart Bingham Prediction and tip

This is a really tough match to call. David Gilbert really looks to be enjoying himself and he isn’t missing much at the table. He’s been so dominant that he hasn’t let his opponents so far, get settled.

But Stuart Bingham has a remarkable head to head record going against Gilbert and that can’t be ignored. He is a former World Championship and showed tremendous composure to fight back to beat Kyren Wilson in the last round.

Gilbert is yet to show how he handles himself under pressure and the pressure is building. Bingham is the Masters 2020 pick for this contest at 19/20* (betting odds taken from Coral on January 17th, 2020 at 7:19 pm)
