Craig MacGillivray’s fine run at the World Amateur Masters Snooker Championship in India ended yesterday at the semi-final stage, losing 5-2 to Thailand’s Phisit Chandsri.
The Granton ace recovered well in his quarter-final match to defeat Brazil’s Noel Rodrigues Moreira.
After losing the first two frames, MacGillivray responded with breaks of 41 and 77 as he won the next three frames. Although Moreira took the match to a deciding frame, MacGillivray won it comfortably to reach the semi finals.
Against Chandsri, MacGillivray started well by winning the opening two frames. However, the Thai came back in style to win five frames on the spin to secure victory, making breaks of 64, 41, 70 and 48.
Chandsri will now meet former World No. 8 Darren Morgan (Wales) in the final today.
