Ben Woollaston scored a tremendous 5-4 win over Neil Robertson to reach the last 16 of the German Masters in Berlin. World number 27 Woollaston knocked out the player ranked 20 places above him to set up a meeting with Barry Hawkins at the Tempodrom. Leicester’s Woollaston is now up to 34th on the provisional one-year ranking list so one more win in Berlin could make him one of the 32 players to earn a place at next week’s tournament at the Preston Guild Hall. Woollaston built a 4-2 lead with top breaks of 83, 61, 117 and 68. In frame seven he missed a tricky blue when just two pots from victory. Australia’s Robertson knocked in an excellent long blue and added the pink for 4-3, then took the next with a run of 59 to force the decider. But it was Woollaston who won the last frame with runs of 38 and 40.

World Champion Mark Selby eased to a 5-0 win over Thepchaiya Un-Nooh with top runs of 53, 100, 70, 64 and 85. Selby now meets Anthony Hamilton, who kept his excellent season going with a 5-3 win over Mark Williams. David Gilbert saw off Scottish Open champion Marco Fu 5-3 while Michael Holt beat Stuart Carrington 5-1. China’s Yan Bingtao remains just inside the top 32 of the one-year list thanks to a 5-2 win over Dominic Dale. Stuart Bingham top scored with 129 in a 5-3 win over Zhang Yong while Barry Hawkins beat Michael White 5-1.
