Roewe Shanghai Masters 2008: Wenbo into last 32

Liang Wenbo defeated Mark Allen 5-2 to reach the last 32 today in what was a vastly improved performance on yesterday’s win over Atthasit Mahitthi. Indeed Liang started well to take the two frames but Allen showed why he is so highly regarded to level it up at 2-2 at the interval…

When play resumed it was to be Wenbo who was able to step it up a gear however, taking the last three frames with breaks of 62, 81 and finally a 105 to seal his place in the next round.

Liang will now face Ryan Day in the last 32 tomorrow.
