Haney on fire

England’s Richard Haney handed Israeli Maor Shalom his first defeat of the U21 tournament this morning, with some excellent play. Richard restricted Maor to just 59 points in three frames, in which Richard scored 91, 65 and 67 himself. As a result Richard takes over at the top of Group N and looks favourite to hold that position when the round robin concludes later today.

Swiss national Alexander Ursenbacher is now the sole player to have completed his group matches without dropping a frame.
