Jack Lisowski – Tian Pengfei Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 14:00

In an astonishing finish to the match, O'Sullivan missed a simple final black off its spot which would have levelled the score at 44. Despite these results, he was not awarded a wild card by World Snooker to compete on the main tour. As a wild card, Tian defeated Ronnie O'Sullivan 53 in the last 32 of the 2010 China Open at the Students University Stadium in Beijing. He also recorded some impressive victories in the Wuxi Classic, by beating Mark Selby 53 and Joe Perry 51, before being whitewashed 60 by Ding Junhui.

He began his professional career by playing Challenge Tour in 2004, at the time the second-level professional tour.[3] Tian played on Main Tour in 2006 and competed on the World Snooker Tour for two seasons until he dropped off in 2008. In 2010, he won his first professional title, the Beijing International Challenge, and returned to the Main Tour the following year. Tian Pengfei (Chinese: , born 16 August 1987) is a professional snooker player from the People's Republic of China. During this period he also served a one-year ban for sexual harassment.

Tian made a 106 break to trail Rory McLeod 32, but lost the next frame to finish as the event's runner-up.[29] Wins over Cao Yupeng and Liang Wenbo saw him reach the third round of the International Championship, where he lost 61 to Mark Allen.[28] He exited the UK Championship 62 to John Higgins in the second round.[30] Tian's final earlier in the season ensured that he made his first appearance in the PTC Finals, but he lost 41 to Robert Milkins in the first round.[28] At the China Open he defeated Barry Hawkins 54 and Michael Holt 52 to play Ricky Walden in the third round. Tian defeated Noppon Saengkham and Yu Delu both 51 and Matthew Stevens 50 to play in the final qualifying round of the 2015 Shanghai Masters, losing 54 to Mark Davis.[28] He eliminated reigning champion Shaun Murphy 41 to reach the quarter-finals of the Ruhr Open and then edged past Alan McManus and David Gilbert to progress through to his first professional final.

Countries

Tian qualified for the 2011/2012 main tour as a semi-finalist from the second Q School event.[8] As an unranked player, Tian would need to win four matches to qualify for the main draw of the ranking event tournaments.

Lisowski started the season with a trio of qualifying wins for the second year in a row to reach the Australian Goldfields Open and, just like last year, he was whitewashed 50 in the first round this time by Judd Trump.[36]After beating Ali Carter 65 at the International Championship, he lost 63 to Marco Fu in the second round.[37] Lisowski knocked out Zak Surety and Graeme Dott at the UK Championship, but bemoaned the fact that he could not translate that form to the main arena in the third round as he lost 64 to David Grace.[38] He was narrowly defeated 43 in the second round of the Welsh Open to Martin Gould.

He therefore entered the UK Championship in good form and looked to be progressing into the second round as he led Michael Leslie 40. Lisowski began the 2013/2014 season by qualifying for the 2013 Wuxi Classic where he whitewashed Tian Pengfei 50 in the first round, before being narrowly beaten 54 by Mark Williams in the second.[25][26] At the European Tour event, the Antwerp Open, Lisowski won five matches to advance to the semi-finals where he lost 42 to Mark Selby.

Tian Pengfei

Tian beat Ronnie O'Sullivan 42 to reach the quarter-finals of the Paul Hunter Classic, where he lost 43 to Judd Trump from 32 up.

Lisowski had a very good season in the Players Tour Championship series of tournaments in the 2011/2012 season. He reached the quarter-finals of Event 6 and Event 9 and went one better in Event 5, where he was knocked out in the last 4 against compatriot, and eventual winner, Andrew Higginson.

Lisowski progressed through to the last 16 of the Northern Ireland Open by defeating David Lilley 43, John Astley 41 and Joe Perry 43, but was thrashed 40 by Barry Hawkins.
