When life was hanging by a thread, Joyce simply let it go. In the fourth game, he showed the level of the world’s 40th qualifying player. With 140 points in a single stroke, Ding Junhui had just shared the highest score in a single stroke with Selby, and the score was 1-3.

In the fifth game, Ding Junhui fell behind 5-34 and scored 53-34. He accidentally overtook himself to snooker, and the offense was interrupted.
