European Under 18s – Last 54

The knockout stage is well underway now and there have been some fine displays of cuemanship by some of the players.

Poland’s Bartosz Utkowski opened his match with a break of 86, but his German opponent Umut Dikme dug into his reserves and turned the match around 3 frames to 1. The third section of the draw was very closely fought, with 4 of the matches going to the deciding frame and even the final black. Ukraine 11 year old Iulian Boiko nearly sprung a surprise by taking 16 year old Taylor Fish of England right to the wire. At the bottom end of the draw, Welshman Dylan Emery stays on course for a last 16 match with compatriot Jackson Page after a strong 3-0 win over young Antoni Kowalski of Poland.
