Aly and Prabhakar bow out in Doha
filed on Friday, November 25, 2016.   19:57 PT/USA

The United States players Ahmed Aly Elsayed and Ajeya Prabhakar say farewell to the 2016 International Billiards & Snooker Federation (IBSF) World Snooker Championships, as both suffer defeats in the knockout stage of the Men's Event at the Al-Sadd Sports Club Stadium in Doha, Qatar.

The three-times former United States Snooker National Snooker Champion Aly advanced from his group into the round of 78 where he matched up against Khaled Alastal.

It was the player from Brooklyn, New York, who made a wonderful start as he went into a very comfortable 2-0 advantage and looked in a good position to book his berth in the round of 64. However the player from Palestine completely turned the tables on Aly as he sealed the following four frames for a 4-2 victory.

Prabhakar, having finished in second place in his group, had already advanced into the round of 64 and was looking for successful outcome over Thomas Dowling for a place in the round of 32.

It was the Irishman though who proved for too strong on this occasion as in the first frame he compiled breaks of 83 and 51. He then took a 3-0 lead before then knocking in a run of 81 in frame four to seal a decisive 4-0 win over his American opponent.

Alan Morris, the Executive Director of the United States Snooker Association (USSA) said: "I would like to thank all of the United States players who went to Doha to represent their country and they should be proud of what they achieved.

"To qualify from your group is a great achievement, so although I feel they will both be dissapointed by their exits, a lot of credit must go to both Ahmed and Ajeya for doing so."
