Naoyuki Oi 11 Alex Kazakis 6. The WPM champion is out. Asia has three that have advanced now in Gomez, Yapp and Oi. Japan's Yoshioka trails 10-9 and his countryman Akagariyama also trails in his match. Omar Al shaheen of Kuwait trails 8-5 in his match and his countryman Badar Alawadhi is locked in a tight one with Melling.

Appleton pulls to within 10-8 vs Filler.

Shane's hunting for this title lol. Jayson can't seem to get in gear. He's had opportunities to stay in the game but can't capitalize.

Time for the commentators to stop saying that this is the only big title that has eluded SVB. He has never won the China Open or the All-Japan Championship either, the other two stage majors with giant and super-elite international fields.. He's won just one (the US Open 9-ball) of what have been the four hardest titles to win in our sport over his legendary career. Of course, the most important jewel missing in his crown is the World Championship, and it will be a heartwarming story is he wins it this week.

Good start to the day for Connecticut.

Jeremy Sossei 11 Kelly Fisher 5. For some reason, they have about the same Fargo, but I was expecting a blowout here. No disrespect to Kelly Fisher, an undisputed superstar in our game, but Sossei went double hill with Van Boening in each of their last two encounters: a) at Turning Stone in January 2020, losing 9-8, and b) at the 2019 Steinway 10-ball Classic in which he also lost 9-8. Let's add that Sossei has two different bronze medals at the Derby City 9-ball event, an event typically featuring a field of about 400 players.. I'd rate Sossei, who plays in chiefly regional events these days, a bit above Billy Thorpe as a nine ball player, but a bit below Skyler Woodward and Justin Bergman. Jeremy is not a contender for the title but he's a super-tough out.
Sossei faces Capito next. As I said earlier, Capito and Yapp are two who could be outpacing notoriety

He can't win a tournament if he doesn't enter it.
