30 September 2011 No Comment

Grove players Judd Trump and Jack Lisowski both made it through to the quarter finals at the first ever ranking tournament to take place in Poland, the Warsaw Classic, at the Arena Ursynow in Warsaw.

Judd made it through to the last 16 after three wins on Friday. Judd started his campaign with a 4-0 win against Rafal Gorecki and followed this up with a tight 4-3 victory over Tian Pengfei and a 4-1 win over Alfie Burden. Judd started on Sunday morning with a 4-3 win over Matthew Selt but then lost in the quarter-final stage by the same scoreline to Ricky Walden.

Jack continued his recent run of good form with a 4-2 against Kyren Wilson in the first round, followed by an excellent 4-3 win against world no 11 Stuart Bingham, and a 4-0 victory against David Singh of India. He then beat Liang Wenbo 4-3 to reach the last eight but lost 2-4 to a resurgent Steve Davis.

Chen Zhe reached the third round proper after three straight wins. Zhe started in the second qualifying round this time and defeated local player Michal Zelinski 4-1. Zhe then enjoyed possibly his best win to date against world no 33 Rory McLeod; Rory took a 3-0 lead but Zhe won the next four frames to book a place in the last 64. He then beat David Grace 4-1 to reach the third round but was unlucky to lose 3-4 against world no 25 Mark King. Zhe can be very happy with his week’s work and his best ever tournament performance since joining the Grove two years ago.

Liu Song joined in round two after his first round opponent, Mike Dunn, withdrew, but then lost 0-4 to Peter Edbon. Zhang Anda lost 3-4 to Adam Duffy in round one and Yu Delu lost his first round match 2-4 against David Singh.
