Billiards & Snooker
Four top players from this event will join Pankaj Advani, Yasin Merchant, Dharmendra Lilly and Siddarth Parikh in the super eight league phase for selection for the Asian snooker championship.
Mannan in his maiden appearance at the Embassy World Championship had earlier recorded creditable wins over the likes of Gary Ponting and Jason Ferguson before bowing out to World No. 47 Dave Finbow. And, as if to prove that his wins there were no flash in the pan, Mannan potted with pin-point precision today.
However, the day's upset was recorded by Mukesh Rehani of Delhi who stunned Rupesh Shah with a 36-66, 81-65, 78-24, 0-112, 68-18 win in another pre-quarterfinal.
