Another week, another tournament is underway in the Far East.

This one is the General Cup in Hong Kong, which features Liang Wenbo - fresh from his Beijing triumph - as well as Ricky Walden, Tian Pengfei and, of course, Hong Kong's greatest ever player, Marco Fu.

Also in the field are young prospects Chan Wai Kei and Li Yan, who beat the reigning Asian under 21 champion, Anda Zhang, to book his place in the round robin stage.

Full daily coverage is available at Global Snooker.

Chan Wai Kei cannot be said to be young prospect. In fact he is a veteran amateur player in HK.

Chan Wei Kei looks useful. He's just lost a very close 4-3 to Ricky Walden

and Li Yan looks good too. He's playing Marco Fu live at the moment

Janie said...

well yes he's veteran now but that doesn't stop him being a very good player.
not sure he'll thank me for calling him veteran. he's certainly been around the international amateur scene a long time.

all today's frames scores are available on Global Snooker.
Ricky made one century and Marco scored quite well too.

Wai Kei usually appears in the IBSF World Championship knock-out stages, so it's not new to us.

Yes i know him better as Au Chi Wei and got rather confused by the name until I saw him playing.

Sorry, Dave,

That headline is a little racist, mate.

Even though it's a clever play on words, our Chinese compatriots (who hold the key to our future) may be offended, and rightly so, you Limey!

Don't piss-off them off, FFS or we're doomed!!

No it isn't. It's a pun based on the cartoon Hong Kong Phooey.

Janie Watkins said...

not as good as the "Pink Ball Wizard" though Dave!!

Snooker The Fine Art Method
A secret is wasted if not shared
Dear ian croker
How you are dear chap sorry my "wisdom" Your word Ian, on my poor attempt to introduce some integrity into snooker coaching.

Your assurances that "No ones listening" was the very proof that many were listening and were at last reading something new and refreshing after seventy years of "Watch Me" and I'll show you again method of coaching the game.

I have no hard feelings lad at your spouting and at times ranting against the Fine Art method as you were only doing your job.

You failed Ian to say what you were objecting about: Was I a menace to all players or just professionals and snooker pundits?

You did your job well Ian and contributed with others on my being excluded from all posting on the Eurosport website.

The truth sadly, is now treated like a commodity as opposed to its standing as a virtue that should be cherished.

There is so much unemployment around Ian that some people would almost sell so much for financial gain or to enhanced a reputation. Take care lad. Mr hey you
