Ebdon will take the match here, it's just how big this break will be. It stands at 91 at the moment, fantastic stuff from the London man.
Ebdon has not let his slip-up in the last frame affect him as he constructs a considered break, currently standing at 33.
Well played, Steve Davis. A break of 43 wins him the frame - a solid display under pressure.
But that's a bit of luck for Davis there, as Ebdon hits the white too hard and the red jumps up and rolls along the cushion before dropping back on the table, instead of going in the pocket.
That won't help. Davis misses a blue by a whisker and inadvertently knocks the yellow in.
And there it is, masterful play from the Ebdonator. Lot to do here for Davis.
There won't be any coming back for Davis in this frame. Ebdon leads 81-0 with a second break of 34 and counting.
Ebdon is looking on top form here. His break lies at 47 and if he can break up the cluster of reds, it could quite easily be 2-0.
Davis may be a god of the game but Ebdon has a terrific CV himself - with a world title back in 2002 - and takes full advantage, winning the first frame.
Davis will be ruing that. He'd worked so hard to get ahead and he's missed a fairly makeable red with the rest. It's safety time as the legend leads 45-32.
As expected, it's a tense battle out there with plenty of thought going into each shot. Ebdon leads 15-13 with a chance of a decent break.
With Stephen Maguire and Stuart Pettman taking their time in that marathon five framer, it's a quick turnaround for the evening session with Steve Davis and Peter Ebdon locking horns.
