Advani in awesome form

NEW DELHI, JULY 30. Pankaj Advani displayed his domineering form with a clean record after the four league matches in the 2004 IBSF World under-21 snooker championship in Carlow, Ireland.

The Indian reeled off breaks worth 53, 40 and 91 in his 4-1 demolition of Dutchman Sebastian Kan on Friday afternoon. So far Advani has won 16 frames and lost three with frame average of 3.25.

On Thursday evening, Advani scored his third win, beating Jassin Al-Merri of Qatar, 80-0, 102-2, 58-31, 114-5, registering breaks of 52, 73 and 56.

Sourav Kothari continued with his dogged luck as he went down fighting to Mark Allen of Northern Ireland, his third loss in as many league matches.
