Mark Joyce continues his great run
It’s been quite an exciting day here in Sheffield as one more group of snooker players have disputed their place into the next round. We had 18 matches that also meant 18 players who got the bye to the second round of this year’s German Masters qualifying.

Unlike the first day, yesterday we had only two tight battles, first being the one between the PTC 6 event winner, Dominic Dale and the Irish David Morris (5-4 in favor of Vienna’s resident) and the one between Robert Milkins and Jimmy Michie (5-4 in favor of the first).
Alan McManus succeeded in booking himself a place into the next round by crashing Jak Jones 5-0, the mighty strategist Dave Harold sent Dermot McGlinchey home by the same result and Adrian Gunnell whitewashed the Thai Noppon Saengkham. Also a very good result was registered by Jamie Jones who eliminated a very tough competitor from the tournament, the Chinese Liu Chuang by a 5-2 scoreline.

Needless to say that Michael Judge and Stuart Pettman were missed, as both of them withdrew from the tournament, but I can’t help of noticing the really good form Mark Joys is in, as he continues his series of winnings by defeating Andrew Pagett 5-1. Well done for this year’s UK Championship quarter-finalist!

Below is the complete list of scores for yesterday’s matches:

Joe Jogia 1 - 5 Jamie O'Neill
Anthony McGill 5 - 2 Michael White
Stuart Pettman w/d Xiao Guodong
Dominic Dale 5 - 4 David Morris
Mark Joyce 5 - 1 Andrew Pagett
Alan McManus 5 - 0 Jak Jones
Matthew Selt 5 - 3 Ben Woollaston
