Chinese 8 Ball - 2017 Joy Billiards World Chinese 8 Ball Masters (Day 4)
10th-16th January 2017 / Olympic Stadium, Qinhuangdao City, China


Zhang Kunpeng beat fellow countryman Shen ChongYang 13-10 in the 'Hot Seat' match to guarantee himself at least a sliver place finish. The 20 year old is now in the Grand Final, he awaits for the player to emerge from the B Side of the draw.

One of those players still fighting in that section is double champion Gareth Potts. The Englishman produced a terrific performance early in the day to defeat Dai Yong 15-10, but later faced elimination square on when trailing opponent Wang Peng in the evening session.

Wang started the match strongly in taking a 4-0 lead; he further kept that four frame advantage later on into the match (even going 8-3 up at one point). However, the 2013 & 2014 winner eventually got level at 9-9 before going ahead in the final stages. Potts led 12-11 when the 140 minute time limit expired.

In the same round on the Losers Side, Number 1 ranked played Zheng Yubo was comfortably dispatched 13-4 by Zhao Ruliang.

​Overall, it means there are just 6 players left in the event. Potts now plays the only other non-Chinese player left in Francisco Diaz Pizarro of Spain. Zhao takes on Xi Hongyu.

The winners of each of those matches will then play each other, the winner of that will play Shen ChongYang.

Chinese 8 Ball - 2017 'Joy Billiards' World Chinese 8 Ball Masters (Day 3)
10th-16th January 2017 / Olympic Stadium, Qinhuangdao City, China


Two time winner Gareth Potts can still make it a hat-trick of World Masters titles after a successful Thursday in Qinhuangdao.

The 2013 & 2014 champion was pushed to the B Side yesterday, but victories today over Xie Zhaohui & World 9 Ball Champion Albin Ouschan kept his hopes alive in this fifth edition of the event.

Potts is just one of two non-Chinese players remaining - overall there are only 12 players left. The other is Spain's Francisco Diaz Pizarro, who won four straight matches before losing to Zhang Kunpeng.

​Zhang and Shen ChongYang are the only undefeated players (5 wins out of 5) left. They will square off tomorrow where the winner is guaranteed a place in the Grand Final.

Today's double session saw the eliminations of American Pool stars Corey Deuel, Denis Grabe, Justin Campbell and Ouschan​.
