He had beaten Mark Wildman, Alex Higgins, Steve Davis and Neal Foulds before facing Jimmy White in the final.[2] During that match Williams took a 5–2 lead which he had made a break of 125 in the 7th frame and 6–4 before White took the last 6 frames to win his first Grand Prix title by 10–6. White had beaten 17-year-old Stephen Hendry in the quarter-finals and Silvino Francisco in the semi-final.
