Tom Ford – Chang Bingyu Match Prediction | 03-10-2019 09:30

Scott Donaldson is a testament to any young player who is willing to grind his way to cement his place onto the snooker tour. He turned professional back in 2012 and qualified for the tour again via the European Order of Merit in 2014 and in 2016. Since then, he made four ranking semi-final appearances. As well as two quarter-finals, he reached the semi-finals of the 2018 Paul Hunter Classic and the 2019 China Open. His China Open run in Beijing was most impressive, defeating Joe Perry, David Gilbert and Ben Woollaston along the way.

He beat Robertson again in the World Open and Mark Davis in the China Open. Clearly, he can play extremely well. Hell, we have Si Jiahui and Lei Peifan two 16 year-olds who are in the mix and goodness know what impact they will make! I do wonder if it is too early for these players to go on tour early and if they can adapt to the gruelling travel, the non-stop snooker, especially since most of the events are far away from home.

The championship began on 4 August 2019, with the first round alongside heldover qualifier matches.[8] Two matches in the heldover qualifier rounds were decided on a deciding frame.

Qualifying[edit]

Dott defeated Michael White before defeating two world champions in Stuart Bingham and John Higgins to reach the quarter-final.[16] Murphy, who had reached only the Scottish Open final in the previous season defeated Yuan Sijun 65 and Riga Masters champion Yan Bingtao 64 before drawing a rematch of the second round match at the 2019 World Championships against Neil Robertson. Graeme Dott qualified to play Shaun Murphy in the second quarter-final.

Selby's win was his 15th professional ranking event win. Mark Selby won the event, defeating John Higgins in the final 109. It was the fourth ranking event of the 2018/2019 season.Luca Brecel was the defending champion, but he lost to Martin O'Donnell 35 in the first round. The 2018 Evergrande China Championship was professional ranking snooker tournament, that took place between 2430 September 2018 in Guangzhou, China, with qualifying took place from 19 to 22 August 2018 in Preston, England.

Page is rated as the most exciting and talented British prospect in recent times at just 17 years of age. In 2016, he reached the 2016 EBSA Under-18 Championship and the 2016 World Under-18 champion. He received a wildcard in the 2017 Welsh Open and beat professionals Jason Weston and John Astley to reach the third round. Ive already blabbered on Jackson Page in one of my recent articles, so Ill try and not be repetitive.

Murphy won frame 13 to need just one more frame for victory. Murphy won the first five frames of the match, with Allen not scoring a single point until frame four.[18] Allen fought back to trail 36 after the first session.[18] Murphy won the first frame of the second session, before Allen won the next two. The second semi-final was a rematch of the 2019 Scottish Masters final between Murphy and Allen. Allen won the next two frames to push the match into the interval.

The 2019 China Championship was a professional snooker tournament that took place from 23 to 29 September 2019. The tournament was the fourth edition of the China Championship and the third ranking event of the 2019/2020 season. The event was held at the Guangzhou Tianhe Sports Centre in Guangzhou, China. Qualifying for the event took place from 15 to 18 August 2019 at the Barnsley Metrodome in Barnsley, England.

Allen, however, lost 96 to England's Shaun Murphy in the semi-finals. Reigning world champion Judd Trump won the event and his 12th ranking championship with a 103 win over Murphy in the final. Northern Irish cueist Mark Allen was the defending champion, after defeating Australian Neil Robertson in the previous year's final. In winning the event, Trump returned to the world number one position, that he had last held in 2013.

The event series is sanctioned by the International Billiards and Snooker Federation. A number of IBSF champions have gone on to successful careers in the Pro ranks, notably Jimmy White (1980), James Wattana (1988), Ken Doherty (1989), Stuart Bingham (1996), Marco Fu (1997), Stephen Maguire (2000) and Mark Allen (2004). Both Ken Doherty (in 1997) and Stuart Bingham (in 2015) have gone on to win the professional World Snooker Championship . The IBSF World Snooker Championship (also known as the World Amateur Snooker Championship) is the premier non-professional snooker tournament in the world.

It will be interesting to see if he can cope with the pressure and of course, how difficult the main tour is compared to the non-professional events. Jackson Page kept blossoming on the amateur circuit, winning a trophy cabinets worth of European and World titles. He finally qualified for the main tour by winning the European U-21 Championship. We will soon know. He beat Irelands Ross Bulman 5-1.
