Robert Milkins and John Higgins once again took to the table to settle their scores. As it was expected, Higgins, world number five came out tops.
However, only very few could have assumed it was going to be an overwhelming win. Higgins completed a 3-0 whitewash over Milkins such that the latter was not allowed any chance to force himself back into the game.`
Elsewhere, Graeme Dott saw off his Chinese opponent, Lyu Haotian to add some more flesh on the log standings. The Scot completed a 3-0 whitewash win over Haotian as the Chinese woes compound even further. Haotian has been no match for anyone else since the start of this qualification process and the next couple of months might be no different.
Graeme Dott could have been excited for such beautiful win over his opponent. Yet, he suffered by the same score line at the hands of Ricky Walden. The Scot was shown no way back into the game as he failed to win any frame. Walden was the superior cueist from the very start of the encounter till when an end was brought to the proceedings last night.
Haotian also played host to Higgins earlier in the day and in the same way it’s been in most other games, he failed woefully. His biggest positive however was the fact that he could manage a frame win. Otherwise, he was battered and bruised by John Higgins who posted a 3-1 score line in a game of 5 frames.
