IBSF World U21 Snooker Championship 2018

The 2018 IBSF World Under-21 Championship continued on the Day 2, with some outstanding performances.

One of the memorable performance was by Haris Tahir from Pakistan, who scored 142 in the 3rd frame during the match with Sybren Sokolowski of Belgium. This was the the 2nd highest break of the tournament.

Tahir Haris had a rather weak start and lost one frame; won another. At this stage his only option was to score by playing aggressively, which he did and got the unplanned break. Having got the perfect opening he went with the drift and after potting three pink balls; then 10 black ones and finally two more pink balls to achieve his memorable break with 142 points.

Harsi did not have a easy game and lost another frame, however, having entered the final frame with a break of 35 points he won the decider frame to win 3-2. He finished No.1 on top of group Q, with his third consecutive win.
