Ricky Walden made sure the Wuxi Classic was won by an Englishman for the third consecutive year as he beat Stuart Bingham 10-6 in the final.

Walden raced into a 9-1 lead but let Bingham back the game to make it 9-4, with the latter’s run featured a 147 break – the only player since Stephen Hendry and John Higgins to record a maximum break in a ranking final.

But Walden held his nerve and sealed the decisive frame to win only his second ranking title, after winning 2008’s Shanghai Masters.
