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.
