PTC7 PHOTOS - FRIDAY - SATURDAY - SUNDAY
Ronnie O'Sullivan didn't attend PTC6 in Poland so it was going to be interesting to see how his recent form was. He his first match against youngster Jordan Winbourne went well, it wasn't vintage Ronnie but he sailed through 4-0. Next up he had India's top pro Aditya Mehta who he performed better against, another comfortable 4-0 victory for the rocket. Last up he had Martin Gould who had already dispatched Rod Lawler and Craig Steadman earlier in the day.
Ronnie O'Sullivan, through to Last 16
The match went 1-1 and in the third frame Gould compiled a 60-odd break and looked to be going 2-1 ahead but Ronnie only needed one chance to clear up the rest of the balls for the lead. Martin did exactly the same in the next only for Ronnie to come back to win for 3-1. It didn't take much time for the Rocket to finish up and he came through 4-1 to face Stephen Maguire in the last 16.
Stephen Maguire's form has been looking a little patchy recently but three good wins against Liam Monk 4-1, Barry Hawkins 4-2 and then a 4-1 win over Ireland's David Morris (who beat John Higgins 4-2 in the second round) secures his place in the last 16. Also through is Mark King who also has been struggling for form since he dropped out of the top 16 recently who recorded strong wins against Ian McCulloch 4-2, Patrick Wallace 4-3 and Ryan Day 4-0 to reach the last 16 on Sunday.
The first player through to the last 16 who isn't in the worlds top 32 was Wales' Michael White. The youngster who has been tipped for success from a young age came through strongly against Martin O'Donnell 4-2, Andrew Pagett 4-2 and in the all On Q Promotions clash against Gerard Greene he wasted no time in beating him 4-0.
Joe Perry has reached his third PTC last 16 of the season by beating Adam Wicheard 4-1, Joe Delaney 4-1 and lastly seven-times world champion Stephen Hendry who he came from 2-0 behind to beat 4-3. Joe seems to be having a better time of it this season compared to the last and seems to be finding his footing again. He will need to improve in the ranking events to continue the march back on to the top 16.
Some of the other players through included Liu Chaung who finished past midnight by beating Rory McLeod 4-0 and another young OnQ player, Kyren Wilson finished at a similiar time to go through to the last 16 by beating Michael Holt 4-1.
