Hard Lines for Oliver as Lisowski hits form
JACK Lisowski was in fine form as he romped to a 5-0 win over Oliver Lines in the China Championship qualifiers in Barnsley.
The Churchdown man, ranked 11 in the world, has breaks of 50-plus in every frame as he swept aside practice partner Lines.
He had his highest break, a 77, in the opener and followed up with 56, 65, 67 and 50 to reach the final stages in Guangzhou next month, where he faces Daniel Wells in the last 64.
Rob Milkins missed out as he let a 3-0 lead slip to go down 5-4 against Sam Craigie.
The Gloucester man won a tight first frame then knocked in a 67 break to make it 2-0 and won the third frame 73-0.
Milkins had a break of 57 in frame four but lost it on the black and Craigie took advantage with breaks of 80 and 51 to level the match,
He then went 4-3 in front but Milkins produced a 102 break to force the decider - but Craigie’s break of 72 sent him through.
