Another Thai player Suckakree Poomjang survived in the deciding frame against Indian player Aayush Kumar 4-3. At one stage, Suckakree was down 1-3 but then he geared up and won rest of the three frames having decent victory margins to make his place for the Last-32.
The last player from Thailand, Thanawat Thirapongpaeboon also reached in the Last-32. He beat Mohamed Ibrahim of Egypt 4-2. His match swung like a pendulum where they both secured alternate but towards the end Thanawat put extra weight in the deciding frame and won it to secure his berth in Last-32. However, Ibrahim had made break of 73 in fourth frame which is second highest of this competition.
