Chee Keong Chan of Singapore pulled out a difficult match against former World No.3, Manan Chandra from India to keep his hopes alive for the knockout stage in the 2016 IBSF World Snooker Championship 2009 here at Doha.
Chee Keong made her intentions clear from the very first frame where he posted a recovery break of 51 points not only to cover his trail but to win that narrowly. He continued the same dominance in next frame too and gained 2 frames lead.
However, Manan recovered with a clearance break of 78 points to cut the deficit 1-2. Manan was gaining his control back but on his score of 44 points in fourth frame he failed to place a proper snooker properly. Chee Keong immediately grabbed that opportunity and posted another recovery break of 69 to win the frame and enhance his lead further to 3-1.
Although Manan pulled out next two frames to come at par but Chee Keong held his nerve better in the decider and caused upset.
