Former world number one Judd Trump trails Stuart Bingham 5-3 in the semi-final of the World Championship.
Bingham, who beat Ronnie O'Sullivan in the quarter-final, took control in the fifth frame after the pair shared the first four at the Crucible.
A break of 74 moved Bingham 4-2 ahead and although Trump responded with a 75, Bingham took the last frame of the session.
In the other semi-final, Shaun Murphy leads Barry Hawkins 6-2.
Murphy, the 2005 champion, made the better start, taking the first three frames before his opponent got on the scoreboard.
Hawkins, who finished late on Wednesday night in a deciding frame against Neil Robertson, won just one of the next three as Murphy made two centuries.
They resume on Friday at 10:00 BST.
Meanwhile, World Snooker has confirmed there will be no further action in their investigation of O'Sullivan using chalk to line up a shot after speaking to referee Terry Camilleri.
The 39-year-old placed the chalk on the table in his quarter-final match against Bingham, but was not reprimanded for breaking the rules.
