UK Qualifiers Day 3 - Tornado On Top

Third day of Qualifying for the UK Championships in Sheffield and the second round has began. All the players who won their first round matches and the players ranked 49-64 were battling it out for a third round place, one of these was Malta's best; Tony Drago. Another victor was Peter Lines who made it to the quarter-finals in last year's tournament.

Tony Drago at the SWSA

Since returning to the professional tour last year, Tony Drago has been the most consistent player in the qualifying rounds, winning at least his first round match in every major ranking event. In his trademark fashion, he didn't waste any time in beating Liam Highfield 9-4. He now faces PTC winner Tom Ford in the next round, could he make his first televised ranking appearance since last year's Welsh Open?

Peter Lines at the UK Championship

In last year's UK Championship, Leeds journeyman Peter Lines stunned the snooker world by reaching the quarter-finals and beating Mark Williams on route. He is on path back to Telford once again after a tense final frame decider against Andrew Pagett, eventually clearing on the colours to win the match 9-8. He now faces strong opposition in the form of experienced pro Nigel Bond.
