Mark Allen has won the Northern Ireland Open for the second time in a row. In a very interesting final match, he defeated Zhou Yeulong 9-4 to successfully defend the title he won last year.

The tournament took place at the Waterfront Hall Belfast.

Eurosports quoted joyous Mark Allen as saying.

“I feel like I won that match today in the first session. He should have been 5-1 in front, but I managed to get out at 4-4. I was just a different player tonight. I was so positive. I felt like I got out of jail and I played well tonight,” says Allen, who emulated his 9-8 win over John Higgins in last year’s final at the Waterfront Hall. “It doesn’t get any better than this. This amazing crowd. This is what we do in Northern Ireland. We support our own so thank you very much.”
