Yes, Pankaj continued with his terrific run and defeated another former World champion, this time Graeme Dott.

This is by far the best performance by Indian on professional snooker tour ... First Indian quarter-finalist, as mentioned he will face winner between Judd Trump and Andrew Higginson ... Mostly in-form 23 yrs old young WR #2 Judd Trump, few weeks back who was WR #1 for 5 weeks ... Trump was finalist at the 2011 World Snooker Championship ... Also at the age of 14 he became the youngest player ever to make a competitive 147 points break.

Wow! what a fantastic run for Pankaj! 4 wins on the trot now including the Qualies... This should boost his morale considerably and help him in the later rounds.... GL

Pankaj's terrific run ended in the quarter-final against highly rated young Judd Trump ... Trump started confidently and take 3-0 lead quickly ... Trump won 4th frame also but in that Pankaj scored 39 points break ... Pankaj gained momentum and managed to win his first frame ... In 6th Trump take 59-1 lead but Pankaj had different plans ... He played tactical snooker game and with help of 2 small breaks of 26 and 33 points won this frame ... Trump played flawless game in 7th and with help of 69 points break he won the match comfortably.

Creditable performance by Pankaj to reached in quarters of this big quality tournament where he back to back defeated former world champions ... He also picked up highest pay cheque of his career, 10,000 pounds.

At £250K Welsh Open 2013, Newport, Wales

[QF] Pankaj Advani (IND,71) l Judd Trump (ENG,2) 2-5 (20-73, 19-72, 3-69, 78-39, 18-62 59-66, 98-0)

Jaydeep,
The above results are for R1 (of four rounds) of world championship qualifier. The other four rounds are called pre-qualifying which our guys did not play.

India is hosting its first ranking tournament. Everyone bar Mehta (who won his R32 match earlier) and Advani (leading his R32 match 3-2 at the moment) are already out.

Edit: And Pankaj wins the 6th frame to win the match 4-2 against world #11 Mark Allen woohoo

Both Aditya Mehta & Pankaj Advani won their matches to make it to the SF with wins over top 20 players. This is the first time that we have 2 players reaching QF of such a high level professional snooker tournament.

At £300K Indian Open, New Delhi, India

[R3] Pankaj Advani (IND,70) d. Stuart Bingham (ENG,12) 4-3 (99-26, 1-117, 80-15, 69-16, 11-72, 8-119, 86-30)
[R3] Aditya Mehta (IND,72) d. Mark J Williams (WAL,18) 4-2 (34-65, 79-21, 85-0, 45-74, 63-49, 70-41)

They meet each other in QF.

[QF] Pankaj Advani (IND,70) vs Aditya Mehta (IND,72)

Mehta beat Advani 4-3 to reach the semifinals. Not sure whether that is the better result for Indian snooker.
