An outraged Allen maintained his innocence – which was apparently supported by TV images and the young referee Marcel Eckardt, who implored the reigning world champion to continue the game.
After O’Sullivan did so, he lost the frame and the match when Allen faced Judd Trump in Saturday’s semifinals.
“I don’t know what it was about,” said Allen. “I won’t let go of it if he wants to make up trash. It was fun – he was completely gone and I was able to take advantage of it.
“I just had to hear Marcel say, ‘Mark, I know you didn’t do anything’. Ronnie is just trying to bully the people out there.
“It was the worst thing he could have done – it just cheered me on. Sometimes he just has to go back to his place. ”
“I was just like ‘let’s get it out of the way’, there is no point in ignoring it. It started 3-2, just with little things. I thought ‘I won’t play that shot until you sit down in your chair, hopefully you get the message’.
“I just thought I need to talk to him. There are no hard feelings. He deserves his victory. ”
The incident affected an excellent game in which the right man won. Allen rattled in images four and six over centuries in a representation that had improved significantly over his narrow victory over Scott Donaldson earlier in the day.
The Northern Irishman should have recorded a maximum interruption in picture six that exceeded the penultimate black and red before he missed a fine cut in the middle and chastised himself for it.
Even so, he maintained his composure and was his usual tender self among the balls. As O’Sullivan’s pace slowed and his temper flared up, Allen focused more on the job at hand and did it in style.
Ronnie O’Sullivan raced past Michael Holt and was definitely the most impressive performance at the Snooker Champion of Champions so far.
The reigning world champion was confined to his seat after dropping out for the first frame when Holt rattled in a century, but from second to last it was all O’Sullivan as he tossed around the table.
Pauses of 65, 86, 71, 49 and 87 meant that Holt spent most of the game in his chair, from where he could certainly only admire a silky smooth performance by arguably the greatest player in history.
O’Sullivan is set to return against Mark Allen, who beat Scott Donaldson 4-3 thanks to a measured century in the crucial context of a chaotic game.
Allen was never ahead until he compiled a break of 125 on the seventh and final frame. Donaldson will resent that he let it go this far after missing Black from the spot in the previous frame when the match was at his mercy.
This was evidence of his last chance to shut the door to anyone who had intermittent problems, made mistakes more than once, and generally lacked the flowing balls to support his play.
Even so, he put together a final century with an opening to earn a meeting with O’Sullivan. The winner met Judd Trump in the semifinals.
