Click to follow
Marco Fu of Hong Kong continued his winning run through the qualifying rounds of the Embassy World Championship in Blackpool yesterday, beating the experienced Mike Hallett 10-2.

The world amateur and Under-21 champion led 7-2 at the interval and duly collected the three frames he needed to reach the 11th qualifying round and edge nearer a debut in the final stages of the pounds 1.32m tournament.

The 19-year-old Fu, seeking his 43rd consecutive match victory, recorded a break of 126 in the fourth frame and then piled on the agony for Hallett, limiting him to just 76 points in the final six frames.
