The snooker superstar lost £ 30,000 for a mistake

The No. 1 Chinese player and number 3 seed of the tournament missed the chance to score the maximum score on the snooker table, thereby winning £ 30,000 for the wrong reason.

The snooker world championship round 1 continues to take place. Top seeds such as Ding Junhui (3rd seed), Neil Robertson (4), Barry Hawkins (5) have all entered the match and they all won tickets to the second round.

Ding Junhui had an emotional game against British player Mark Davis. A bad start, the Asian muscle hand let the 42-year-old Davis lead 4-0, suddenly awakening the former world No. 1 to get back 3 games quickly before allowing the British muscle to lead 3-5.

Drama took place in game 9, when Ding Junhui had a chance to break 147 points (the maximum number of points in a game), after having eaten 12 red balls (1 point each) and 12 black balls ( 7 points) to get 96 points and if you continue to hit like that and then clear the hand, China will get a bonus of £ 30,000.

But due to his lack of focus on breaking records, he managed to get the green goal ball (6 points) in the middle of the table and missed the chance to set a record. Needless to say how regretful a 28-year-old muscle hand was after that situation, he held his head regretfully and forced a smile, the audience and rival Davis were also surprised by the heartless situation of the Asian muscle arm.

“I didn’t think about it (record) until I knew I could score 147. I’m just trying to score more than 100 points, but I don’t think I’ll set a record. I don’t know, it’s true, I’m sorry… “. Ding Junhui expressed regret after the match.

After that rare mistake, Ding regained his composure and continued to show his class with a 10-7 victory over Davis. In the second round, Ding Junhui will face the legendary 39-year-old John Higgins four times world champion.

Another former world number 1 and former world champion 2010 – Neil Robertson has a convincing 10-2 victory over Jamie Jones. Worth mentioning in this match, the Australian player also had 3 moves over 100 points, especially in the third game Robertson scored 143 points, the score was almost absolute and he almost got 30,000. In round 2, the Australian mechanic will meet Allister Carter, the world’s number 13.

The Prince of Persia hopes to inspire the development of snooker

Iran’s top player Hossein Vafaei netted a stunning 4-1 win over Ding Junhui in the final round of 16 of the World Grand Prix and believes his success could spur the development of snooker.

Vafaei became the first Iranian professional player when he entered the tournament in 2015, and has since been joined by Soheil Vahedi. In recent seasons, he has had remarkable success, which helps him reach three semi-finals of the ranking event and climbing to 37 world place.

Today’s performance against Ding showed his ability as he hit breaks at 86, 134 and 51.

He had lost. There, he played good sports, people supported him. They loved him to play well.

Selby went on to win a second consecutive championship, beating Anthony McGill 4-2. Leicester’s Selby beat Ronnie and Oullivan 9-3 in the final of last Sunday’s Scotland Open final and have continued their momentum. In the eight frames he won this week, he’s made a century and seven more over 50.

Stays 134 and 58 gave him a 2-0 lead over McGill, then his opponents hit back 2-2 with 87 and 128. World number four Selby responded with 86 and 91 to reach the final eight.

Four-time world champion John Higgins failed 4-3 against rising Chinese potter Zhao Xintong. 111 and 137 clearances gave Zhao a 3-1 lead, then he missed the ball twice in the fifth frame and that opened the door for Higgins to make a 3-3 comeback.

The decider went down to red in the end, and Zhao slashed an awfully long pot into the top corner, before turning pink to win.

Zhao now faces Jack Lisowski, who played better in the Gloucestershire derby against Robert Milkins, winning 4-0. After an erratic opening frame, Lisowski overcame the last three in just 32 minutes, making breaks for 130, 127 and 56.
