Single defeat: Zheng Yubo and Chu Bingjie met in the first round, the second half is desperate
On the evening of March 23, the first phase of the 2019 “Yaqi Group” Cup Chinese Billiards World Championships was over. Defending champion Zheng Yubo and Wu Jiaqing were promoted. Unfortunately, Ke Bingyi, Li Hewen, and several famous snooker players Perry, Ryan Day, and Ford also successfully broke through the defeat. However, several masters, such as Dort, Liu Haitao and Wu Hao, unfortunately stopped at the double-loss stage.
In the men’s international team winning and losing rounds in the morning, only Mark Davis, a snooker player, successfully advanced from the winning team to the top 32. Ryan Day and Dott both lost to major disadvantages. Mei Lin and Wu Jiaqing, Holt, who performed well in the last round, were even directly swept 0-9, which made people surprised. However, Ke Bingzhong, who claimed to have almost never practiced a Chinese table in a systematic way, unexpectedly qualified from this group. He defeated Tom Ford 9-8. The defending champion Zheng Yubo also played in this period, and in the second half of the game, defeated Dade 9-5, easily broke into the single defeat stage.
The domestic group and the international group of the defeated promotion round will be played at the same time. After this round, all the remaining promoted players and eliminated players will be produced. Li Hewen and Liu Haitao, the old teammates of the national team, met in the losing department. The result was a one-sided match. The normal Li Hewen eliminated Liu Haitao 9-4, allowing the latter to end the World Championships journey early. This round of snooker players performed well. Ryan Day, Ford and Joe Perry all defeated their opponents and successfully broke through. Only Dort and Mark King stopped there.
Both Chinese Taipei double stars Ke Bingyi and Zhang Ronglin completed the first phase of the mission, defeating their opponents respectively, and joined forces with Ke Bingzhong, who was promoted by the winning team. Among them, Ke Bingyi laughed at the gift from the opponent at the critical stage of the game, and then killed the game beautifully one after another. In addition, in the domestic group, the teenager He Wenchong beat Yu Haitao 9-8. This wild card player also used a good victory to justify himself. Wu Hao, Chen Shuangyou, and Xu Haobo, the dark horse in the side event, lost to their opponents and bid farewell to the World Championships.
Today’s women’s competition is also exciting. Among them, Liu Shasha and Fu Xiaofang fought for 18 minutes in a decisive game. Finally, they passed the difficult stage, bringing Gao Meng, Tang Chunxiao, Wang Ye and other popular candidates to break through the winning team. Han Yu defeated Zhou Jieyu, a sister of Chinese Taipei 7-5, without any risk, and then advanced.
The women’s losing team was promoted to the round. Kylie Fisher, who claimed to have no knowledge of Chinese billiards, beat Fu Xiaofang 7-2 in an upset. Fu Xiaofang, who has recently gained a lot of international competitions, slowed down a bit. Although they all tasted defeats before, Zhou Jieyu, He Xinru and Wei Ziqian were able to easily defeat their opponents in the losing department, and entered the women’s 16 single defeat stage. A group of young players including Jing Siya and Shi Tianqi also rendezvous with the big team, especially Shi Tianqi, who defeated Oschun 7-6, which also avoided the embarrassment of falling behind in advance.
Subsequently, the organizing committee immediately conducted a single-loss draw. The result of the draw drove the Chinese fans crazy. Zheng Yubo, Chu Bingjie, Liu Chuang, and Shi Hanqing were killed in pairs, and only one of the four could advance to the quarterfinals. It is even harder to imagine that in addition to the above four players, the lower half includes Wang Yun, Mei Lin, Li Hewen, Wu Zhenyu, Yang Fan, Meng Fanyu, Wang Peng and other 11 players who are eyeing the championship. The lineup in the upper half is relatively thin. Except for Zhao Ruliang and Wan Tongle, the rest are mostly snooker and American players. Therefore, it is very likely that a big dark horse will be born from this area in the final.
