The International Group of the Chinese World Championships: Mei Lin staged a dominant performance, the Chinese Taipei Legion was unfavorable
On the morning of March 18th, the 2019 “Yaqi Group” Cup Chinese Billiardsinternational team kicked off. The huge international team of nearly 300 people appeared in three sub-fields at the same time, which became a unique scenery.
The three days from the 18th are the international group side events, led by the former World Championship runner-up, but the overall level is still much lower than the previous domestic group. The international side matches need to pass 5 consecutive levels to advance to the main match. On the first day of the international group today, only the first three rounds of the men’s and women’s groups will be played.
Despite his super popularity and expensive as the last runner-up, the British star Merlin still had to play outside the tournament. However, for him, the side game is a piece of cake, and it is more important to take this opportunity to warm up. Today, Merlin won three games in three games a day without any effort. He lost only one game in the third game, and his dominance is evident.
The ChineseArmy is also one of the highlights. As we all know, Chinese Taipei is strong in the field of fancy pool, and dozens of people have played in the side games this time. For the first time in the history of the World Championships, the three Ke family brothers joined hands. Among them, the eldest brother and the second brother directly qualified for the race, and the third brother Ke Binghan must pass the qualifying test. In the early game, Ke Binghan encountered British players in two consecutive games. After a long and fierce battle 7-6, he lost to Bryan 3-7 in the second round and could only fight again tomorrow. Throughout the game, Ke Binghan could not get rid of the habitual play style of pure American players so that he made frequent mistakes.
For the remaining Chinese Taipei players, Liu Riteng lost to South African player Jason Theron in the third round of the deciding game. Zhao Ronghua and Lin Shikai also stopped early in the second round. Xu Ruian was defeated by Li Baixian in the deciding game of a civil war. Luck lore. Only Ye Zhenlun and Tao Yinduo were among the few highlights of Chinese Taipei players. Both of them offered sweeping sweeps and drove three rounds. In particular, the well-known coach Tao Yingduo, after years of immersion in mainland China, has become a master of Chinese billiards. Very deep insight, I believe it is only a matter of time before breaking into the race. However, the two are in the half area where Merlin and Burmese king Yang Shaojie are located, and they are bound to experience a fierce battle.
Some of the women’s Chinese Taipei players are still quite impressive. After all, the deep foundation in pool is still difficult for players from other countries to match even on unfamiliar Chinese tables. It should not be difficult to pass the test in a large area.
On the morning of the 19th, the last two rounds of the first side event will be played. Like the domestic group, the international group also adopts the promotion method of 8 men and 4 women. The draw for the second side game will be conducted immediately, and the final few qualifying places will be determined on the 20th.
