Chinese Pool World Championship Fields Down to Eight

Mick Hill
Day two of the 2017 Yaqi Group Cup Chinese Pool World Championship is complete, and the field in each division has now been cut down to just eight players. 
The men’s division is sure to have a new winner, as last year’s Champion, Shi Hanqing, was eliminated in the round of 32 by Myanmar’s Phone Myint Kyaw in a lopsided 11-3 match. Last year’s runner up, Mick Hill, will have his hands full with Jayson Shaw in the round of eight on Wednesday. 
In the ladies division, defending champion Siming Chen will face China’s Wang Ye in the round of eight. Other notable ladies still in contention include Ga-Young Kim, Sha Sha Liu and Kelly Fisher
