Tom Ford – Chang Bingyu Match Prediction | 03-10-2019 09:30

He beat Robertson again in the World Open and Mark Davis in the China Open. Clearly, he can play extremely well. Hell, we have Si Jiahui and Lei Peifan two 16 year-olds who are in the mix and goodness know what impact they will make! I do wonder if it is too early for these players to go on tour early and if they can adapt to the gruelling travel, the non-stop snooker, especially since most of the events are far away from home.

Scott Donaldson is a testament to any young player who is willing to grind his way to cement his place onto the snooker tour. He turned professional back in 2012 and qualified for the tour again via the European Order of Merit in 2014 and in 2016. Since then, he made four ranking semi-final appearances. As well as two quarter-finals, he reached the semi-finals of the 2018 Paul Hunter Classic and the 2019 China Open. His China Open run in Beijing was most impressive, defeating Joe Perry, David Gilbert and Ben Woollaston along the way.

Murphy won frame 13 to need just one more frame for victory. Murphy won the first five frames of the match, with Allen not scoring a single point until frame four.[18] Allen fought back to trail 36 after the first session.[18] Murphy won the first frame of the second session, before Allen won the next two. The second semi-final was a rematch of the 2019 Scottish Masters final between Murphy and Allen. Allen won the next two frames to push the match into the interval.

The championship began on 4 August 2019, with the first round alongside heldover qualifier matches.[8] Two matches in the heldover qualifier rounds were decided on a deciding frame.

Allen, however, lost 96 to England's Shaun Murphy in the semi-finals. Reigning world champion Judd Trump won the event and his 12th ranking championship with a 103 win over Murphy in the final. Northern Irish cueist Mark Allen was the defending champion, after defeating Australian Neil Robertson in the previous year's final. In winning the event, Trump returned to the world number one position, that he had last held in 2013.

The event series is sanctioned by the International Billiards and Snooker Federation. A number of IBSF champions have gone on to successful careers in the Pro ranks, notably Jimmy White (1980), James Wattana (1988), Ken Doherty (1989), Stuart Bingham (1996), Marco Fu (1997), Stephen Maguire (2000) and Mark Allen (2004). Both Ken Doherty (in 1997) and Stuart Bingham (in 2015) have gone on to win the professional World Snooker Championship . The IBSF World Snooker Championship (also known as the World Amateur Snooker Championship) is the premier non-professional snooker tournament in the world.

In reaching the semi-finals, Trump was guaranteed to return to world number one after the tournament for the first time since 2013.[23] Selby won three of the first four frames to lead 31.[19] However, Trump won the next four frames to lead 53 after the first session with breaks of 97, 108, 97 and 116.[19] In the second session, Trump won the first three frames to lead 83 including two more 90+ breaks. The first semi-final took place on 9 August 2019, between Selby and Trump.

Page is rated as the most exciting and talented British prospect in recent times at just 17 years of age. In 2016, he reached the 2016 EBSA Under-18 Championship and the 2016 World Under-18 champion. He received a wildcard in the 2017 Welsh Open and beat professionals Jason Weston and John Astley to reach the third round. Ive already blabbered on Jackson Page in one of my recent articles, so Ill try and not be repetitive.

Another young Chinaman destined for greatness. Like many young Asian prospects, he has featured as a wildcard on many occasions. In the 2018/2019 season, he collected many professional scalps. Another players to watch article. In the China Championship, he beat Jimmy Robertson and Robert Milkins to reach the second round. He was only halted by eventual winning Mark Selby. 16 year old Chang Bingyu has qualified as one of the best players on the CBSA China Tour. But he is not just an unknown player.
