Morgan gives a snooker masterclass to Szafransky
filed on Tuesday, November 22, 2016.   14:06 PT/USA

The former World Snooker professional top-16 player Darren Morgan gave the United States' Jeff Szafransky a snooker masterclass during their Group C encounter in the Masters' Event of the 2016 International Billiards & Snooker Federation (IBSF) World Snooker Championships at the Al-Sadd Sports Club Stadium in Doha, Qatar.

The 50-year-old Welshmen, who was a semifinalist in the 1994 World Snooker Championship at the famous Crucible Theatre, only conceded two points in the whole of the match to his opponent from California, as he initially cruised into a 2-0 advantage assisted with breaks of 41, 44 and 47.

It was then in frame three in which the 1987 IBSF World Snooker Champion fired in a tremendous break of 132 to wrap up a comprehensive 3-0 victory.

Szafransky now has two remaining matches in order to try and qualify from the group, with his next match against Farhad Sayfoo of Mauritius getting underway tomorrow, November 23, at 1pm local time (2am Pacific Time / 5am Eastern Time in the United States).

Laszlo Kovacs was the only other American player in action today, as in Group S of the Men's Event he faced Daegyu Lee.

While Kovacs gave the 21-year-old from South Korea something to think about in the first frame as he ran him to the final colored balls, Lee then proceeded to away to a comfortable 4-0 victory.

Kovacs will play his third group match tomorrow, November 23, against Russia's Ivan Kokovsky at 1pm local time.
