"Barry! Barry! Barry!"
This was the chant ringing round Alexandra Palace late on Saturday night as Barry Hawkins booked his place in this year's Cazoo Masters final to face Neil Robertson.
Following in the footsteps of the Australian who wrapped up a 6-5 win on the final black against Mark Williams, Hawkins too went all the way to a decider before beating Judd Trump on a simply extraordinary day of snooker.
This is the first time since 2002 that both semi-finals have gone the distance at the Masters and now the tastebuds are tingling for a fantastic final.
Robertson rightful favourite on reputation and should be backed to score big
In a winter which has seen its fair share of one-sided battles when Australia has faced England, it is no surprise to see the Thunder from Down Under a fairly comfortable favourite at 4/11.
When it comes to pedigree on snooker's big stage, Robertson has been there and won it all. A former winner of all the Triple Crown events and the most successful overseas player in the history of the game, Robertson's credentials to lift the trophy need no real introduction.
This is a decade on from Robertson's previous Masters win when he below away Shaun Murphy the first time the event was held at its current Alexandra Palace home. He's lost twice in the final since and is back for another crack with the Paul Hunter Trophy and a £250,000 top prize up for grabs.
Robertson was visibly holding back the tears after recovering from 4-1 down against Williams and needing snookers in the deciding frame to secure his place in the final.
Even for a player as decorated as the Australian, the Alexandra Palace cauldron has brought out plenty of emotion; this is a venue every player wants to play at and almost all of them have said this week it is the best atmosphere in snooker.
We expect that to go up another notch when they come out for the final.
Robertson with his laser-sharp long potting and almost robotic break building and cue action feels almost a certainty to score heavily and so can be backed at Evens to land more than 2.5 centuries.
You could also bacxk him to make more than eight 50+ breaks in the match at 13/8.
Don't write off Hawkins for landmark moment
For Hawkins, these showpiece occasions come around a little less often but this is another opportunity to land his first ever major.
His previous two Triple Crown finals have seen him take on Ronnie O'Sullivan and while Robertson knocked out the Rocket en route to this match, Barry may well be pleased of the respite from facing the greatest player of all time when he reaches this stage of events, especially given the 10-1 drubbing he was on the receiving end of in his last Masters final in 2016.
While Robertson is looking to add another big title to his already-impressive CV, Hawkins has the chance to land what would be without doubt a career-defining win - one which would cement what a fabulous player he is with a big title next to his name.
We saw what it meant when he got over the line against Trump and fist pumped into the crowd which was the trigger for the fans to get so loudly behind him after such a tense battle on the baize.
There are a couple of things to note about Hawkins. Not only is he probably the most under-rated player in the world's top 16, rarely spoke about at the start of these major events as a contender to win them but he is also talked about as arguably the best player never to have landed one either.
Today he has the chance to join the elite players who have done that and with it fulfil a lifetime ambition and get his name on a trophy of huge prestige after more than four decades as a professional and into his 40s.
Hawkins will be the underdog but this is a role familiar to him on this stage. He shouldn't be written off and is 2/1 to win the match or 10/11 with a handicap of + 2.5 frames.
