quote:Ronnie O'Sullivan loses to Mark Williams in China
Five-time world champion Ronnie O'Sullivan was beaten 6-5 by Mark Williams in the quarter-finals of the International Championship in China. Despite losing the first three frames, the Welshman claimed his first ranking event win over O'Sullivan since 2002.
Northern Irishman Mark Allen beat Wales' Michael White 6-3 to book his place in the semi-finals.
England's Robert Milkins saw off Marco Fu 6-5 and compatriot Ricky Walden was a 6-1 winner over Scot Jamie Burnett. Englishman O'Sullivan, 38, who compiled three century breaks in his 6-1 second-round victory over Anthony McGill, managed a best of 72 against Williams.
O'Sullivan started strongly before the Welshman, 39, opened up a 5-3 lead, only to allow O'Sullivan to level at 5-5. O'Sullivan potted only two reds in the deciding frame as Williams, world champion in 2000 and 2003, made breaks of 50 and 22 to maintain his hopes of a first ranking title since the 2011 German Masters.

Is dat nog ergens te zien?quote:Op woensdag 5 november 2014 18:09 schreef Modus het volgende:
In de UK wordt nu de Champion of Champions (non-ranking) gespeeld, in een wat ongebruikelijk format. Trump en Ding staan al in de halve finales terwijl 4 spelers hun 'groepswedstrijd' nog moeten doen (Allen, Carter, Robertson, Walden). De winnaar van die groep speelt dan tegen Trump.
Vanavond Ronnie tegen Marco Fu, de winnaar daarvan speelt tegen Ding.

Six-time World Championship runner-up Jimmy White says he "strongly believes" he can still win the title.
White, 52, has not reached the Crucible final since 1994 and has failed to qualify for the event since losing in the first round in 2006. But he told BBC Radio 5 live: "I'm not finished yet. My eyes are good, I'm still playing good. "Make no mistake, I'm really knocking on the door. I still have very strong belief that I can win it."
