Ben started his winning campaign in the last-32 with a 8-3 victory over England’s 8ball professional Marc Farnsworth before overcoming the challenge of Ireland’s top international junior player Ben Mc Moran (Tyrone) in the last-16 with a 8-3 win.

The Welsh wizard kept his great run of form going, with another fantastic victory over Ronan Mc Carthy (N.
