World number 13 – Stuart Bingham recorded a remarkable four centuries in five frames to see off Mark Selby from the World Open.
The Jester from Leicester had taken a 2-0 lead in their round three matches in Yushan, but the three-time world champion who won in 2014, 2016, and 2017 barely got a sniff after that.
The Ball-run as he fondly called reeled off five frames in a row to secure his place at the quarter-finals, scheduled later in the week.
With this win, Bingham sets off an encounter with one of the most successful players in the history of the sports – John Higgins in the quarter-finals after the Wizard of Wishaw secured a final-frame victory over fellow Patriot Graeme Dott 5-4. John Higgins had a tough encoubter with Dott, who has been amazing the the tournament. John Higgins and Stuart Bingham is indeed at mouthwatering clash that everyone will look forward to.
Dott got off to a great beginning with breaks of 104 and 80, but a 71 and 99 saw Higgins taking the match to a decider.
The Wizard of Wishaw then trailed 3-2 and 4-3 but rallied to successfully resist Dott and grab the last two frames with a 60 and 69.
Elsewhere, the all-Thai clash of the last 16 saw Thepchaiya Un-Nooh gaining the upper hand over Sunny Akani in a match that ended 5-3.
Un-Nooh returned back from losing the first frame to take the lead by 3-1, only for 24-year-old Sunny to level at 3-3.
Breaks of 62 and 74, however, helped Un-Nooh get over the line and will now have to contend against David Gilbert.
Gilbert, on his part bade farewell to Mark Allen after winning him 5-3, the 38-year-old Englishman won four of the last five frames to reach the quarters.
