If Steve Davis beats Adrian Gunnell today he will make his 30th appearance at the Crucible and will appear there in a fifth different decade.
The good news for Davis fans is that the six-times world champion is 6-3 up although his 6-1 lead was trimmed by Gunnell making two successive centuries.
The first of those could have been a 147 but he missed the penultimate red with the rest on 104.
Davis looks very determined. He may have generally taken his foot off the gas but this is the one match of the year he really wants to win.
The 52 year-old has certainly brought in plenty of support. There's a huge crowd in watching, most of whom are watching him.
He needs four more frames from 4pm.
