ALI Carter is celebrating his third ranking title victory after winning the Betfair German Masters, in Berlin.

The Colchester-born potter beat Marcu Fu 9-6 - having stormed back from 5-3 down - to pocket 60,000 Euros.

The 33-year-old, who grew up in Tiptree, had earlier beaten Fraser Patrick, Anthony Hamilton, Michael Holt and Neil Robertson to book his place in the final at the 2,000-seater Tempodrom.

And after finding himself 5-3 down at the mid-session interval, he roared back with breaks of 116 and 121 to make it 5-5.

He then dominated the next frame to nose in front, before taking control and wrapping up victory.

His other ranking titles came at the 2009 Welsh Open and the 2010 Shanghai Masters.
