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

POTTS STILL ON COURSE FOR A TRIO OF TITLES

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​.
