World Snooker Championship 2011 - Day 6 Selby is through

21.4.2011 Day 6

Afternoon Session

Match 8 - Mark Selby v Jimmy Robertson

Early graduation fot the debutant J. Robertson

Selby leads widely 8-1 after the first session. Selby gets a very great chance after Robertson miss a red. He hits a 107 to extend his lead to 9-1. In the second frame, some good safeties are from both players. Selby gets a very good chance by making a snooker in the last frame. Selby wins the match by 10-1. Mark Selby had a comfortable win, he meets Stephen Hendry in next round.

Result: Mark Selby 10-1 Jimmy Robertson

Match 21 - Mark Williams v Jamie Cope

It is the first Round 2 match to play today. Few chances for both players in the opening frame, but Williams takes the opening frame. Williams takes the second frame with 51.  Williams holds a 4-0 lead before mid-interval. After mid-session, Cope pulls one back 1-4 down on Williams. Williams trials 7-1 lead over Jamie Cope after the first session. Mark Williams is not at his best so far today, but I think Jamie Cope is too easy for him, always gives him big chances. It is a speedy session for snooker fans, only spent about two hours to complete eight frames! ;-)

Evening Session

Match 16 - John Higgins v Stephen Lee

Lee's new haircut didn't bring him luck

Higgins leads Lee 6-3 before the second session begins. Shortly after the first session begins, Higgins knocks a 124 to go 8-3 ahead. Lee then pulls two back along with 101. But Higgins ended the match with 74, 81 in the last two frames. Higgins wins the match 10-5, he meets Rory McLeod in the next round.

Result: John Higgins 10-5 Stephen Lee

Match 17 - Judd Trump v Martin Gould

Another Round 2 match to be played today. Both players won 10-8 over their opponents in the previous round. Trump takes the first three frames with 54, 92 but Gould pulls one back before the mid session. Gould levels the match 3-3 but Trump goes on to lead 5-3 at the end of first session.
