IPT eliminates 18 more players

The IPT North American Open is getting tougher and tougher. There are now only 18 players left from the original 200 strong field.

Notable players eliminated last night included 6 times world champion Earl Strickland, Mick Hill, NIck van den Berg, Mika Immonen, Raj Hundal and Corey Deuel.

A player that is setting the world alite is former snooker pro Quentin Hann, he won 4 out of 5 yesterday and advances into the last 18.

Round 5 Groups

Hann (Aus), Stalev (RUS), Reyes (PHI), Nevel (USA), Appleton (GBR), Luat (PHI)

Bustamante (PHI), Matlock (USA), Peach (GBR), Orcollo (PHI), Alcano (PHI), Souquet (GER)

Manalo (PHI), Pagulayan (PHI), Hohmann (GER), Chamat (SWE), Owen (USA), Diks (NED)

Astonishingly (or not!) the Phillipines still have 7 players standing going into round 5. Favourites are still Reyes and Bustamante, however, a dark horse that has just been staying out of the limelight is Stalev of Russia.

Tonights action is live on Eurosport from 9pm.
