EPTC4: 29-31 October 2010, Gloucester

30 October 2010 No Comment

The MIUS Cup – the fourth game in the EPTC series – was the first event held at the South West Snooker Academy in Gloucester.

A great performance from the Grove’s Liu Chuang who reached the last 16 after three good wins on Saturday, first beating Joe Swail 4-0 and then defeating world no 25 Andrew Higginson and world no 27 Ryan Day, both by a scoreline of 4-2. Chaung then followed this up with a great 4-2 win against world no 6 Shaun Murphy but then lost to Joe Jogia 2-4 for a place in the semi-finals.

A great first day also for Jack Lisowski who won all three games to reach the last 16. Jack beat Simon Bedford 4-1, Dave Gilbert 4-1 and Mark Joyce 4-2. However Jack’s next opponent was world no 7 Stephen Maguire who ran out the winner 4-2.

Judd Trump once again made it through to the last 32 by beating Les Dodd 4-1 and Thanawat Thiraponga 4-1 but then lost to an in-form Shaun Murhpy 0-4.

Liu Song followed up a 4-3 first round win against Sam Baird with a fantastic victory against world no 1 and world champion Neil Robertson, 4-2. Sadly Song wasn’t able to keep the momentum going and lost in the third round 2-4 to world no 20 Stephen Lee.

Matthew Selt was another Grove player who enjoyed a good start, beating Kurt Maflin 4-0 and then defeating six-times world champion Steve Davis 4-3. However his next opponent was world no 9 Mark Selby; Matt was defeated 2-4.

Zhang Anda lost his first round match against Ben Woollaston 1-4 and amateur Chen Zhe also lost at the same stage, to Mark Joyce 2-4.
