Cao Yupeng 4-0 Ricky Walden
Here is what he had to say to Worldsnooker.

Cao top scored with 54 as he set up a match with Ryan Day. “Neither of us played well and I haven’t been practising much recently,” said Cao. “I knew I wasn’t able to score heavily against Ricky so I tried to play a better tactical game. The opening frame was vital. I got in first, then he could have cleared up but he left the last red over the pocket. Once I was 3-0 up I didn’t leave him any chances and my safety worked. I think I’ve found some form for my next match against Ryan Day.

“I didn’t qualify for Chengdu so the Haining Open is the one I’m focussing on. It’s a pity that I can’t play in Chengdu. I was ranked 41 a couple of months ago but now I’m 51. Every tournament is important as the rankings can change significantly – there’s a chance I could drop out of the top 64 by the end of the season.

“I’m not bothered who I play, I will have a chance to win because it’s the nature of the game. It’s more about playing yourself, not your opponent. If you play to your best you can beat anyone, that’s my theory. “

Round 3

Ryan Day 4-1 Cao Yupeng
Congratulations to Ryan for his first competitive 147 in the last frame of the match.

Tian Pengfei 4-3 Li Hang
Li Hang came back from 3-1 down to force a decider, that went very close but Tian prevailed in the end.
