World Open Qualifying, Sheffield: 21-24 August 2010
Great news for two Grove players, Judd Trump and Liu Song, who have made it through to the final stages, to be played in Glasgow from 18-26 September 2010.
Liu Song fully justified his inclusion in the Pro draw – he was a late replacement for the currently-suspended John Higgins. Song had three great wins, against Allan Morgan 3-2, in-form Barry Pinches 3-1 and Michael Holt by the same score, which included a break of 104.
Judd started in round 3 and defeated Thailand’s Thanawat Thirapongpaiboon 4-0, including breaks of 108, 76 and 69.
Jack Liswoski was drawn against the winner of the Grove’s pre-qualifying event, Ryan Casuton, in round one. Jack won 3-1 but went to lose by the same scoreline in round two to Andy Hicks.
Matthew Selt beat Lasse Munstermann 3-1 in his first game, but lost in round three to Martin Gould 3-0. Liu Chuang was defeated in round 1 by Brazil’s Igor Figueiredo 3-2. Zhang Anda also lost in round by the same scoreline, to Sam Baird.
