Pankaj Advani swats away Paul Schopf
On Friday, it appeared as if Advani was in a great hurry. Even before some of the latecomers could settle in, the 29-year-old Bengalorian shot out his Austrian opponent Paul Schopf in about 45 minutes.
Advani floored his rival with sizeable breaks en route a 4-0 win, his third in as many matches in Group ‘H’. The 12-time world champion constructed a gritty 71 in the first of the best-of-seven-frame encounter. The 29-year-old knit together a couple of 40plus breaks in the next two frames. He then closed out with a flourish.
