The Londoner, winner of the Skoda Grand Prix in 1993, took two frames in a row to beat the British Open champion Nigel Bond, 9-7. Ebdon, who also won the invitation Regal Scottish Masters earlier this season, pocketed a first prize of pounds 40,000 and will now climb to third position in the provisional world rankings.
"It's a great feeling to be a winner again and it's just nice to do my job properly for once," Ebdon said. "I felt very determined going into the last session. I wanted this badly because it's been such a long time since I've won a ranking event. It means an awful lot to me."Reuse content
