Six-time champion O’Sullivan is the favourite to win the final, although Trump moving to evens after his thrilling win over Williams shows the bookies believe this could be a close affair.
Williams fought back spectacularly to take the match to a deciding frame, with Trump eventually getting over the line.
O’Sullivan, the world No. 1, had an easier time against an out-of-sorts Higgins, and it is difficult to look past the 46-year-old when it comes to the final — especially with the chance to match Stephen Hendry’s record in his sights.
