Mark Williams remains on course for an automatic World Championship place after winning 6-1 against Hossein Vafaei to reach the China Open final.

Welshman Williams, world champion in 2000 and 2003, needs to win the event to return to the top 16 and qualify for the Crucible later this month.

The 42-year-old will play either Kyren Wilson or Mark Selby in Sunday’s final.
