The last year champion of 150Up format World Billiards, David Causier failed to save his title and lost to Pankaj Advani of India in Last 16 stage.
It appeared like a storm for Causier where Advani kept scoring constantly in all four games. However, Causier had some chances in first game where he made 94 points break, but he couldn't stay long as Advani secured the same with a break of 89 points.
After that Advani was absolutely unstoppable and crafted breaks of 109, 151 unfinished and 146 unfinished in next three games to write a one-sided story of last-16 stage. Causier had no other option and stayed like a mute spectator with score line of 07, 00 and 00 in last three games.
