General Cup International: Day Four News

No shocks today over in Hong Kong as both Ricky Walden and Liang Wenbo booked their places in tomorrow’s final…

July 16th – Semi-Finals (Best of 9 frames)

Liang Wenbo 5-2 Li Yan
97(97)-0, 12-77, 66-25, 39-69, 107(59)-33, 104(104)-29, 76(69)-6
Ricky Walden 5-1 Tian Pengfei

Liang Wenbo will be bidding for his second professional title in as many weeks tomorrow as he moved into the final of the General Cup International with a win over Li Yan today.

There he will meet Ricky Walden who came through a potentially tricky tie against Tian Pengfei at the loss of just one frame.
