On October 12th, Beijing time, the Snooker England Open kicked off. Star contract player Ding Junhui ushered in the first round of the Chinese derby against the "post-00" teenager Si Jiahui.
The first round of the English Open was a 7-game winning system. Ding Junhui was in poor form at the start, and Si Jiahui seized the opportunity many times to win two games first. In the third round, the two entered the black ball battle, and Si Jiahui narrowly won 70-68 and came to the match point 3-0 first.
Ding Junhui, whose life is hanging by a thread, finally broke out. The experienced, unhurried pace, made snookers one after another, and scored 77, 50, 66 points in a single stroke, dragging the game into a decisive game. In the deciding game, Ding Junhui found a chance and scored 53 points in a single stroke. The total score was 81-12. He completed the big reversal and successfully advanced to the second round!
Ding Junhui’s opponent in the next round is the winner between Burns and Brecher, and the match will be held on Wednesday.
