Williams is in the semifinal for the seventh time at the Crucible Theater. At 47, he is also the oldest semi-finalist since Ray Reardon in 1985.
Williams, who had already led 6: 2 after the first session, failed on Tuesday night. Yan Bingtao was able to equalize at 8: 8 and also got off to a better start on Wednesday. The Chinese moved up to 10: 8 and then to 11:10, but Williams had more stamina at the bottom.
With breaks of 69, 66 and 78 points, the Welshman won three frames in a row until 13:11 and thus freed himself for the quarter-finals.
