The Clearance That Secured Jack Lisowski's Win Over Jimmy White | 2023 BetVictor German Masters
Bingham Looks Set To Progress
Stuart Bingham maintained his 100% record on day two at the Sangsom Six Red World Championship in Bangkok.
The world number two secured a 5-2 win over Amateur Six Red World Champion Darren Morgan and a 5-1 defeat of local favourite James Wattana, to leave himself on the verge of qualification for the knockout stages.
Thailand’s Thepchaiya Un-Nooh also preserved an unbeaten record, with a 5-4 win over Rod Lawler. Un-Nooh made breaks of 70, 72 and 70 on his way to victory.
After suffering defeat yesterday, Ding Junhui began his day with a win over Phaitoon Phonbun. The World Championship Runner-Up made breaks of 67, 62, 71 and 71 as he eased to a 5-1 victory. However, Ding left himself with work to qualify from his group, after suffering a 5-3 defeat in the final session of the day against Robert Milkins.
Multiple Six Red World Champion Mark Davis continued to show his prowess in the shorter form of the game, as he maintained an unbeaten record. He only dropped one frame on his way to winning two matches yesterday and defeated the UAE’s Mohamed Shehab 5-4 this afternoon.
“I wasn’t quite as sharp as in my first two, I was a bit lucky today,” said Davis. “The format is a big leveler and in this format anyone can beat anyone.”
Mark Selby lost the opening frame against Australia’s Peter McCullagh, however the World Champion reeled five frames off in a row to secure a 5-1 win.
Stephen Maguire experienced mixed fortunes on day two. He suffered a shock 5-4 defeat against Thailand’s Suchakree Poomjaeng, before beating 16-year-old Yuan Sijun 5-2.
