Day 6 Results

Day 6 seemed the most spectacular and bizzare amongst the days of competition as a total of 9 seeded players started and ended their venture at the 24th National Snooker Championship 2010 at A-Que Snooker & Pool Club. Seeded No 1 Rory Thor Chuan Leong was forced to the wall and had to dig very deep in his match against multiple SEA Games medalist Sam Chong. After losing the first frame, Sam showed the junior his former playing form as he won 2 frames in a row and took lead by 2-1. Rory however kept his cool, playing slow and steady to win the next 2 frames and match 3-2 after a 2 and a half hour ordeal.

The Top 4 seeded players had no difficulty in winning their first match as Mohd Reza, Moh Keen Hoo and Lai Chee Wei brushed their opponents away with 3-0, 3-1 and 3-0 against Choo Gim Pin, JH Leong and Peter Lee respectively. The other seeded players were not as fortunate as they were shown the exit in their opening match, only being able to wait and participate next year's edition.

The Last 16 round matches will start tomorrow at 7pm followed by the Quarter Final matches at 10pm. Both session matches will be played over the Best of 7 frames.

  1. It shows that the current ranking system may not be suitable for the Malaysian snooker environment. After 20 years, perhaps MSBF should explore other ranking systems for a more accurate reflection of the player's strength and form. Even MSBF does not use the current ranking system for selecting the national players.

    As for the fallen seeded players, it is easy to fall when your opponent has already gone through a few matches whereas the seeded start their 1st match. this is not the pro circuit where the qualifying and main draw are held on separate months and different venues. for the seeded players, it'd be good for them to start early, say at the 64 or 96 stage. i'm sure 10 seeded players plus few that survived would agree.
