Some news from the under-21 WC currently ubder way in Ireland
China's Li Hang is the man to beat in Letterkenny as he maintained his unblemished record at the top of Group B with four wins from four without dropping a single frame yet.
However he is now having it all his own way as Thailand's Yuttapop Pakpoj and Israel's Shachar Ruberg keep hot on his heels with four wins each.
However Hang and Pakpoj face off against each other tomorrow afternoon when something will have to give in the battle for the No.1 spot in the group and possibly top seeding in the knockout stages.
Group A sees Robert Carlise and Vincent Muldoon lead the way with Carlise having a 4-0 win over Mostafa Gebaly today to make it three wins from three. Muldoon also ran out a 4-0 winner today as he saw off Al Urfy Bairaq for his third win of the campaign and will have a tough match tomorrow against Thailand's Patchara Mayoe before facing Carlise on Thursday and Li Yan on Friday.
Yan is also in with a shout of the top spot after three wins from four and it could go all the way with Friday's match against Muldoon a big deciding match in that group.
Other pre tournament favorite Stephen Craigie also notched up his third win today with a solid 4-0 win over Khalid Khamali with Khamali, Devaney and Zielinski competing for the other three spots at this early stage with two wins.
Stephen's younger brother Sam is firmly in control of Group D with four wins from four and should join his brother in the knockout stages this Saturday.
Most of the remaining groups are still fairly competitive at this early stage although England's Nick Jennings is looking good for Group J with three wins to date.
Play continues tomorrow and live scoring and live streaming are available here: http://www.esnooker.pl/ .

Anyone knows who'll advance to the KO stages in Letterkenny? Can't find this info at IBSF or elsewhere. :confused:
There are 10 round-robin groups, so how do we get down to 32 players?
> top 3 of every group, two top-seeds get a bye into last 16
> top 3 of every group, added by two best numbers 4
> top 3 of every group, numbers 4 play extra round to reduce to total of 32

5th August 2010, 12:22 PM
No. Brecel should play in PTC3 :)
5th August 2010, 12:24 PM
He's better off mixing it with the 'big boys', because he is that good.
5th August 2010, 12:27 PM
Don't think luca was given much option and was advised to play in ptc.
Englands players are Stephen and Sam Craigie and Nick Jennings.

I need some help please.
The IBSF website says there are seven players in Group J. There is no mention of Daniel Dempsey.
And yet we hear that group winner Nick Jennings beat Dempsey but hasnít played Daniel OíRegan.
Initially I assumed the names had been mixed up. However, Ferret reports above that OíRegan has played Dempsey.
Can anyone explain?

If the semi-finals are best of 13, Vinnie Muldoon missed the final. No idea what happened to him -bad day maybe. He was 6-0 down, attempted to hit back but.... 7-3. Li Hang is in the final.
The Craigie tussle is still too close to call. At the moment, it's 5-5.
Not that the people now in charge with updates on the Global-snooker seem to give a damn about the event and I'm very, very sad about that.... :(
Decider. What a game that must be!
I remember the buzz one could feel on that site when Janie was there. Of course, I couldn’t check but I just knew as everybody knew that we were hundreds if not thousands of us fans waiting for the new frame score, being together in that invisible, unpalpable way> being there. I miss that more than I could say.
Sam won 7-6.
10th August 2010, 11:16 AM
Vincent Muldoon from Ireland met Li Hang from China in the first semi-final .
It was Li Hang who made a great start to this semi final. The first session of 4 frames all went to Hang. The first frame was over in just over 5 minutes, with Hang winning by 71 points to 23. The second frame Li Hang won by 67 points to 16. The third frame saw Hang clear the table with a 105 clearance with the first century of this semi-final match. The fourth Frame Muldoon did not manage to score a point as Li Hang saw out the frame with a 55 break to end the session 4-0 up.
The second session saw Li Hang in the same mood as he won the next two frames by 62-3 and 95-1 to go 6-0 up and only 1 frame away from a place in the final. But Muldoon started to relax with nothing to lose and compiled a lovely 74 break to take his first frame of the match. Muldoon then put together a 53 break to reduce the deficit to 6 frames to 2. The ninth frame saw Muldoon compile a clearance of 122 to win the frame by 134 points to 0 and reduce the gap to 6-3.
The Tenth frame saw Muldoon go for a long red into the pink pocket but he missed the pot and set up Li Hang a chance to win frame and match. Li Hang settled himself and put together a well taken 78 to win the frame by 93 points to 8 and booked himself a place in the Final of the IBSF World under 21ís Snooker Championship 2010.
The Second semi-final saw the Craigie brothers, Sam and Stephen fighting for the other place in the Final. It was Sam who started stronger with a 76 clearance to win the frame by 97 points to 13. Stephen edged the next frame with a point score of 63 to 53. Stephen Craigie composed the first century of this semi final with a 115 break.
Sam then levelled the match at 2-2 with a 63 point to 47 frame. Sam Craigie took the next as well to lead the match again by winning 56-14. Stephen then made his second century with a clearance of 113.
Sam won frames 7 and 8 to take a 5-3 lead, but his brother Stephen came back to win three frames on the trot including a 129 total clearance in the 10th to lead by 6 frames to 5 and leaving himself needing just one more frame to win the match. But it was Sam who had a break of 76 in the 12th frame to leave the semi final going into the final frame decider.
The final frame was to go to Sam by 68 points to 6 and give the 17 year old a place in the final of the IBSF World under 21 snooker Championships 2010.
10th August 2010, 02:42 PM

To answer my own question> it has just started! :D
10th August 2010, 04:58 PM
Great final so far, poised at 7-7 first to 9... watch here...
10th August 2010, 06:11 PM
I gather Sam won 9-8, so many congratulations to Sam.
10th August 2010, 06:13 PM
yes 98 (I think) break in the decider - great nerve under pressure
10th August 2010, 06:13 PM
Great last two frames with a couple of cracking snookers laid by Sam with pink and black left to almost steal the frame and then a superb 90-odd to seal the championship. Well done from a fellow Geordie!!!!!!!:-)

Final Day Ė IBSF World Under 21 Snooker Championship 2010
Li Hang (China) V Sam Craigie (England)
Li hang starts by taking the first frame by the score of 64 points to 9. Th second frame of this best of 17 final is Samís with a marvellous century break of 102. Sam also takes the third frame by 84 points to 45.
Li Hang plays a very good tactical frame in the next and wins the frame by 73 points to 1 to level the match at 2-2. Sam wins a very low scoring frame in the next to lead again by 3 frames to 2.
Li Hang was to go on a roll in the last3 frames of the first session, Hang managed breaks of 65 and 64 in frames 6 and 7, and managed to win frame 8 by 62 to 34 to close out the session leading 5 frames to 3.
Li hang came into the second session where he left off from the first taking frame 9 by 53 points to 32. Sam Craigie was now 6-3 down and needed to dig deep to try to close the gap. The comeback started with a break of 86 in the next frame to reduce the gap to 6-4, Sam convincingly won the next as well by 65 points to 8.
Sam had reduced the gap to just 1 frame. The next frame saw Sam put together a 57 break to help him level the match for the first time since the score was 3-3. Sam then won his fourth frame on the trot to lead the match by 7 frames to 6. Hang needed to compose himself to get back into the match and that he did by making a break of 99 in frame 14 to level the match at 7 frames all.
With 3 frames to play it was anybodyís match to win. Sam settled after a great pot on a red to finish with a 96 break and leave himself needing just one more frame to win the match and the title.
The penultimate frame started well for Craigie but a miss from Craigie on 46 left Hang a chance to come back and level the match with a frame score of 69 to 46.
The match had come down to the Final Frame, the atmosphere had been fantastic all week at the Northwest Snooker Club, and all the spectators were on the edge of their seats as the two Finalists came back to the table to play the deciding frame.
Sam Craigie made the final frame his own with one visit and only missing the final yellow while on a break of 98 stopped him from closing out the Championships with a century break.
Sam Craigie is the IBSF World Under 21 snooker Champion for 2010.
