  1. 6:02 PM O’Sullivan pimps out Vafay. Ronnie O’Sullivan eased into the quarter-finals of the Snooker World Cup on Saturday. The seven-time world champion did not have any children in the second round against Iran’s Hossein Vafaei, who lost 13-2. Much has been written and said about O’Sullivan’s duel with Vafaei, who has not been on the best of terms since the Iranian suggested last year that the Englishman should retire. The two have been at odds since O’Sullivan played disrespectfully at the German Masters, according to Vafay. The missile then rammed open balls at the beginning of frame, something Vafaei repeated as a statement yesterday in frame two. But it soon became clear that the Iranian would bite the dust in the mind game with O’Sullivan. The defending champion came out very sharply and gave Vafaei little crumbs yesterday and today. Vafay had to watch as O’Sullivan dominated the match and also pocketed the 1,200th century of his career on his way to a 13-2 victory. Then, the hatchet seemed to be buried, as O’Sullivan and Vafaei fell into each other’s arms laughing. O’Sullivan is on the trot to the quarter-finals, where the Englishman will compete against Luca Bressel. The match takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday. .

He saw our compatriot Mark Williams make three tires in the last session, but he recovered well. & nbsp; In the decisive 23rd frame, Brecel carefully built a winning break. Then he finished it off with a dominant match: 13-11. In the quarterfinals he will meet the winner of the duel between Ronnie O’Sullivan and Hossein Vafaei. .
  5. 22 hours 38. Brecel is recovering, one more tire is needed. After three frames in a row, Brecel was back on the scoreboard. Our compatriot built a break very carefully and did not make any mistakes. 12-11, Brecel is one frame from the World Cup quarter-finals. .
  6. 22 hours 23. Precel Shakes, Williams 11-11. An hour ago, it seemed that there would be no problem for Prissil, meanwhile, the tide had completely turned. Williams showed off a great snooker game after the break, while Brecel made some costly mistakes. The three-time world champion was the best at controlling nerves and won three frames in a row: 11-11. The mental advantage now lies with the Welshman. Can Bresil keep his cool as he reaches a historic quarter-final? .
  7. 21:14 Precel on his way to the quarterfinals. Luca Brecel dominated it all in the final session of his second round against Mark Williams. Pressell won the first shot of the evening with a huge clearance to extend his lead to three frames: 10-7. & nbsp; The eighteenth frame has become a tactical competition. Brecel seemed to be on the way to a smooth match, but an unnecessary mistake on the Browns heralded Williams. Brecel needed two snooker catches to be able to respond, but after a game of ping pong, our compatriot gave up: 10-8. Still, Brecel didn’t let losing a frame bother him. With a big century break – his fourth of the match – he put Williams back in the wall again: 11-8. & nbsp; Brecel needs two more frames to become the first ever player from continental Europe to reach the quarter-finals of The Crucible. .
  8. 6:39 p.m. O’Sullivan’s Vafaye closes. The match between Ronnie O’Sullivan and Hossein Vafaei was one of the most talked about matches of the World Cup. Vafaei had landed some verbal punches at O’Sullivan beforehand and vice versa. For example, Iranian said he finds O’Sullivan “disrespectful”. & nbsp; O’Sullivan said before the match that you shouldn’t be angry. In the afternoon session against Vafaei, he immediately showed why. The “Rocket” did not miss a chance and put its opponent in its place with some delicious balls: 6-2 after the first session. .
  9. 6:25 p.m. Bingham narrowly avoids outright humiliation against Allen. Mark Allen slammed hard in the second round of his Round of 16 against former world champion Stuart Bingham. Allen won 7 of 8 frames in the second session, after finishing the first session at odds of 5-3. With the score at 12-3, Allen could have made the third session unnecessary in the 16th frame, but Bingham grabbed his last straw with his century. Tomorrow Allen needs one more frame to reach the quarter-finals. A clash with Neil Robertson may be waiting for the Northern Irishman. .
  10. 13:53 Precel has the upper hand against Williams. Luca Precel had an excellent morning session against Mark Williams. Our compatriot won 5 out of 8 tires this morning and leads 9-7. Precel missed his start, as Williams took the first two tires of the day. But the Belgian’s answer was worth watching. With breaks of 113 and 100, he leveled the score at 6-6. Pressel continued his momentum. With excellent snooker, he won 3 frames in a row, including breaks of 66 and 80. In the last frame of the morning session, Williams managed to avoid a 4-frame deficit with a break of 81. The score now 9-7 in favor of Brecel, the game will continue tonight. Whoever wins 13 shots first will advance to the quarter-finals. .
