Noppon Saengkham and Graeme Dott Through to Knock-Out Stages

Noppon Saengkham and Graeme Dott Through to Knock-Out Stages

Noppon Saengkham looks safely through to the knockout stages while last year’s winner Ding Junhui needs to beat Tom Ford in his final match; the winner of their match will progress through with Saengkham.

Anthony McGill is safely through the round robin stage; he plays Ryan Day in the final round. Day needs to win that match and hope that Passakorn Sowannawat loses to Mohammad Sajjad; Sajjad has only managed to win a single frame in two matches so things are not looking great for Day.

Group C is wide open, with all players on a single win each. The winners of tomorrow matches will go through, Kyren Wilson plays Ricky Walden, while Thepchaiya Un-nooh takes on Kristjan Helgason.

Michael Holt beat Mark Davis 5-2 to secure his place in the knockout stages; he has only dropped 3 frames in his two matches. Holt plays Liang Wenbo in the next round; a match he doesn’t need to win to go through in group D.

In group E, Stephen Maguire is all but certainly through to the final stages after beating India’s Kamal Chawla 5-4. Maguire plays Stuart Bingham in the final round, who faces an uphill battle for qualification after going down 5-1 to Akani Songsermsawad. Even a win for Bingham may not be enough if Saengkham beats Chawla in the final round.

Mark Williams and Mark King are safely through on two wins a piece in group F; they play each other tomorrow for the group winner.

Graeme Dott has dominated group G; having only dropped 2 frames in his two matches. Dott plays Martin Gould in his final match. David Gilbert looks to have the easier route in to the knockout stages facing Hong Kong’s Lee Chun Wai.

Marco Fu is safely through to the knockout stages; he plays Ben Woollaston next. Woollaston would need to beat Fu by 2 more frames than Michael White who plays Darren Morgan. White looks a dominating favourite over Morgan, who has lost lost his first two matches.
