ANTRIM'S Mark Allen has booked a place in the quarter-finals of snooker's World Championships for the first time since 2011.
‘The Pistol' has certainly found a rich vein of form this season, picking off big names like Ronnie O'Sullivan and winning his first Triple Crown event back in January.
But the reigning Masters champ has found it difficult to shine at the Crucible. Never an opponent to take lightly, but when it comes to Sheffield Allen has struggled to make his mark.
This year has been different, however. The spectacular potting and break building that have made the Antrim ace a force to be reckoned with are in good working order, but this time he has a new weapon in his armoury - self belief.
Allen begins his quarter-final tie against Kyren Wilson today (Tuesday).
