'I'm reborn,' Parrott said. 'I'm playing the best snooker for two years and it feels great. I discovered a couple of technical faults in my game that I've since ironed out. For the last six months of last season I just couldn't pot a long ball. But now if I'm left one I know I can make the most of the opportunity.' Parrott will now meet the world No 9, Nigel Bond.
In another third-round match the Irishman, Ken Doherty, trails Ronnie O'Sullivan, a 17-year-old fellow member of the Ilford Snooker Club, 6-2.Reuse content
