Stuart Bingham emphatically defeated Dominic Dale to progress to the last eight at the Sangsom Six Red World Championship in Bangkok.
The world number two had already beaten two-time World Champion Mark Williams earlier in the day with a narrow 6-5 victory. Things were more decisive in the last 16, as Bingham produced breaks of 65, 51 and 60 on his way to a 6-1 win.
Ding Junhui looked to have regained form after struggling in the group stages, as he won two matches to move into the last eight. After defeating former World Six Red Champion Mark Davis 6-4, Ding saw off Welshman Ryan Day 6-3. He’ll face compatriot Liang Wenbo in the quarter-final.
Wenbo secured his passage with a 6-4 win over Ben Woollaston and a 6-5 defeat of Noppon Saengkham.
Luca Brecel produced two impressive wins to book his quarter-final spot. The Belgian first saw off Russia’s Evan Kakovsky 6-1, before edging out world number 8 Ricky Walden 6-5.
Brecel said: “I played Ricky at the UK Championship and won by the same 6-5 scoreline so I was thinking about that. Six red snooker is a totally different game though I’m very happy to come through.”
Multiple billiards World Champion Pankaj Advani used his experience to seal comfortable wins over youngsters Lukas Kleckers and Yuan Sijun. In his opening match Advani whitewashed Kleckers 6-0. He then defeated Chinese 16-year-old Sijun 6-4.
World Champion Mark Selby bowed out at the last 32 stage, following a 6-4 loss to Michael White. However, White also departed on day four, after a 6-1 defeat against Michael Holt. It was later announced that Holt would have to withdraw due to personal reasons.
Stephen Maguire is through to the last eight after a 6-2 win over local favourite Thepchaiya Un-Nooh. Maguire looked to be in fine form, making breaks of 65, 59 and 69 on his way to victory.
Akani Songsermsawad ensured that there would be a Thai in the quarter finals after an impressive 6-1 defeat of Joe Perry. The talented 20-year-old made contributions of 58, 71 and 50 as he swept the world number 10 Perry aside.
