Ronnie won an excellent match against Anthony Hamilton, beating him by 4-2.
Those are the scores and stats:
Ronnie had 97% pot success, 83% safety success and 75% long pot success, and yet it wasn’t an easy match. Anthony Hamilton won the first frame, with a well constructed break, and the feeling was there all along that any mistake by either player was likely to be punished. Just like he had in the previous rounds, Ronnie applied himself and always played the right shots.
Here is the match, without commentary, and, unfortunately with some background noise. (I will replace this if I find a better version).
Thank you, Tai Chengzhe for those great pictures!
This result puts Ronnie on 17th place on the one year list, but he still needs to win two more matches to get in the top 16.
There is no WST report on that session.
