Last 128

Yu Delu 4-2 Matthew Selt
Yu won another close and hard fought match where none of the players had any big break. By what people on the site report it’s very hot in there and conditions are tricky.

Joel Walker 0-4 Li Hang
The score line is a bit misleading as all frames but one were very close. Joel made 60 in the last and Li Hang still won it with a 69 …

Judd Trump 3-4 Ding Junhui
Judd won an excellent but rather tactical first on the pink; both players looking good in all department of their games. Ding makes it 1-1 with a break of 73 after Judd missed the black off it’s spot and opened them all having scored only 9. Ding takes the third with 48 (all reds+blacks) and 60, Judd had a great chance after Ding lost position on 48 but missed another black off the spot at only 14. After a rather scrappy start, the 4th goes to Judd who finished with a good break. 108 for Judd in the 5th after Ding – playing a very aggressive shot – opened all the reds and left one over the pocket. Some impressive exhibition shots from Judd to finish as well. Ding’s answer was massive: he took the next with 54 and 51, then finished the job with 82.

Jimmy Robertson 4-3 Zhang Anda
And lost this despite scoring breaks of 53, 58 and 84. It tells the story: a high quality, close encounter. Shame there had to be a loser.

Mark Williams 4-3 Yu Delu
Another hard fought match, but this time most frames were one sided. Eventually the experience (and class) of the double World Champion prevailed.

Li Hang 4-1 Gerard Greene
Gerard made the highest break of the match, 91, but it won him only one frame. Li Hang scored well – 57, 58 and 50 – and managed to take the close ones. That won him the match.

Last 32

Li Hang 3-4 Anthony Hamilton
Li hang started with an impressive 105, but then found himself 2-1 down. He took the two next ones, both close frames, to regain the lead. From there though Anthony got his break building boots on – he’s one of the best break builders on the tour – and he sealed the match with 67 and 79.

Neil Robertson 3-4 Liang Wenbo
Wenbo made breaks of 65, 100 and 52 in beating the World n°1. Easy? No! It was, very, very close: in fact he won on the final black in the decider!

Jack Lisowski 2-4 James Wattana
Jack won the opener, but James responded like the class act he still is: breaks of 50, 82 and 67 gave him a 3-1 lead. Jack kept his hopes alive with a 106 in the 5th. But James sealed the match by winning the close next one 68-48.

Daniel Wells 3-4 Chen Zhe
At 3-1 down Sleepy looked dead and buried but he made a good 88 in the 5th frame and went to win the next two as well for the match. Well done!

David Gilbert 4-1 Li Yan
Li Yan won the first by 68-50. After that he only scored 13 points in total as David racked up big breaks: 71, 124 and 61 …

Last 64

Liang Wenbo 4-2 Mike Dunn
71, 81 and 101 gave Wenbo a 3-0 lead. Mike replied with 83 and 65 to close the gap to 3-2. Wenbo then finished with a 63. High scoring boys …

Tom Ford 4-1 Chen Zhe
Despite the shoreline this was pretty close as frames scores show. Sleepy made 63 in the third and still lost it, he won the fourth by 62-61. But how close it really was doesn’t matter, Tom Ford was the winner, making break of 69 and 86 in the process.

Stephen Maguire 4-2 Liang Webo
The high scoring continued in Wenbo’s next match. He made 54 and 63 whilst his opponent made 51, 68, 55, 51 and 67. That’s 7 breaks over 50 in only 6 frames …
