"I feel that this season I have really come of age. My game has really improved over the last couple of years and at this moment in time I am ready to step up," he said.
"However, my scoring isn't quite as heavy at the moment and if I get that back then I think I will be tough to beat."
Matchroom Sport chairman Barry Hearn believes Grimsby is the ideal host for this year's play-offs.
He said: "Grimsby has always been a real hotbed of snooker going back decades, so it seemed a natural choice to bring the play-offs here for the first time.
"Over the years, the Grimsby Auditorium has always been one of the fastest selling venues on the league calendar so we're delighted to be staging the finals there.
"I know all the players love playing in Grimsby in front of the biggest crowds of the season."
