Damian Massey (friend of mine) has made the last 64 of the Eurotour Czech Open. He is still undefeated going into the second stage and will now have to face one of Europe's top 32 players.
The former main tour snooker pro has taken some time out over the last year to practice hard and in his first Eurotour event is already in the money!
Other Brits Daryl Peach, Imran Majid and Craig Osbourne now enter the event in this new format.
Another player that has gone through undefeated through the double elimination rounds is none other than Filipino sensation Marlon Manalo also playing in his first Eurotour event.
