Thailand’s former professional Dechawat Poomjaeng secured a thrilling 4-3 win over Jeffrey Roda from the Philippines on day two of Asia-Oceania Q School in Bangkok.
Fan favourite Poomjaeng delighted the Crucible crowd with a run to the last 16 of the 2013 World Championship. However, he hasn’t been a professional since the 16/17 season. He faces fellow former professional Thor Chuan Leong up next in the last 16.
Pornpiya Kaosumran knocked in the highest break of the tournament so far, a run of 128, during his narrow 4-3 win over fellow Thai Wiphu Phuthisabodi. Kaosumran is up against Narongdat Takantong in the next round.
Kritsanut Lertsattayathorn came through a 4-3 victor against Iran’s Amir Sarkhosh. Next up he faces Poramin Danjirakjul.
The tournament consists of two events, with the finalists from both to earn a two-year card to the World Snooker Tour. The four successful players will be awarded a place on the professional circuit for the 2022/23 and 2023/24 seasons. The final event finishes on June 11th.
