Sunday 29th of October ~ Sunday 5th of November at the Baihu Media Broadcasting Centre, Daqing, China

Kyren Wilson made a maximum but lost 6-5 to Martin Gould from 4-0 up and Yan Bingtao carried on from his win over Ronnie and beat Ricky Walden.

Also in the last 16 are Judd Trump, John Higgins, Neil Robertson, Mark Allen, Ali Carter, Shaun Murphy and World Champion Mark Selby after a tense battle with Tom Ford winning 6-4.

Who will make the last 8?

Do agree with TR on the earlier thread...

Robbo is scoring as well as ever, and this win over Selt from 5-2 down might give him the boost he needs. I get the feeling this season that's all he needs... a click and he'll win big tournaments again... and I think he'll win one this season. He did win the Hong Kong Masters but was an invitational.

Selby v Robbo in the Quarters would be very interesting, always love their matches and been quite a while since they played each other.

But I want MJW to win v Selby though.

The other ideal Quarters would be Bingtao v Higgins, Allen v Trump (even v Wenbo wuld be great) and the other Quarter cant be fussed.

Until 2012 they pretty much only played at the CL.

Ever since they have had some very high profile matches, including Finals of the UK and Masters, plus that great semi at the 2014 Worlds.

Robbie Williams 5-1 up against Robertson, still best of 11. Will need a massive comeback like yesterday or he'll be packing his bags.

On a side note I'm very happy there's a snooker player called Robbie Williams. If he ever gets a maxi the hashtag on social media has to be #shestheone47

It seems Joyce has chances first in Most frames but scores very low and Higgins finishes the job

Higgins 5-1 Joyce

Still 3 more tournaments to go and theres only about 1000 between him and Ryan Day in 15th no disrespect to them i fully expect Robbo to be at the Masters

Is his UK money not going to drop off?

Yan Bingtao is definitly the real deal how many times have we seen players flop after a win like he had against Ronnie but hes in to only his second Quarter Final following his Geman Masters run earlier this year when he lost 5-2 to Stuart Bingham.

Ah right I've been thinking Robo's situation was worse than it is then.

Oh and Neil has just two events to make it as he didn't qualify for Shanghhai.

Joyce had chances in most frames reaching 50+ points in 4 of the 7 frames played and couldnt convert i will sugest Higgins needs to up his game considerably to beat Yan Bingtao.

That makes me think that prime Williams would have beaten Selby a lot. At least more often than not.


Williams regularly beat Ronnie, Higgins and Hendry during his peak so he would have had no problems whatsoever with Selby.
