Thepchaiya Un-Nooh continued his return to form with a 4-1 victory over Chris Wakelin to reach the final stages of the BetVictor Northern Ireland Open.
Thailand’s Un-Nooh narrowly avoided relegation from the pro circuit at the end of last season; only a run to the last 32 of the World Championship kept him on the tour. He is now looking to climb back up the rankings and with today’s result he can look forward to a trip to Belfast in October. Breaks of 66, 85 and 51 helped him to a comfortable win over Wakelin.
Jackson Page fired runs of 59, 51 and 107 as he saw off Robbie Williams 4-2 , while Martin Gould cruised to a 4-0 whitewash against Michael Judge. Sean O’Sullivan, returning to the tour this season after a three-year absence, top scored with 60 in a 4-1 win over Jamie O’Neill.
The BetVictor Northern Ireland Open at the Belfast Waterfront runs from October 16-23. Mark Allen will be defending the title, with the likes of Ronnie O’Sullivan, Judd Trump, Neil Robertson, Mark Selby and John Higgins also in the field. For ticket details click here.
