Ronnie O'Sullivan claimed his sixth Betway UK Championship title after 10-5 victory over Shaun Murphy in a high-quality final in York.
With this victory, O'Sullivan levelled with Steve Davis' haul of six UK Championship titles. He also drew level with Stephen Hendry's 18 'Triple Crown' titles of the World, UK and Masters events.
The two were on equal terms in the first eight frames with each of them knocking in a century apiece, but O'Sullivan seized control with four breaks over 50 and two further tons.
O'Sullivan pocketed £170,000 in prize money by winning five frames.
The result means O'Sullivan now has 31 ranking titles, just five behind Hendry's all-time record.
O'Sullivan said, "The records are great. I tried my best all week and there's nothing left. I'm over the moon to win any tournament, let alone the UK Championship.
"I just love playing and love competing and I can't believe I'm still playing at 42, with all these grey hairs."
