Irishman Robert Murphy qualified today from his group in the World 6 Reds Championship in Thailand with a number of great performances this week in Bangkok. He will now face Welsh Professional player Andrew Pagett early Thursday morning in the Last 32 Knock out round.
Earlier Robert had group wins over 2011 World Amateur Champion Hossein Vafaei Ayouri from Iran and Thailand Profesional Passakorn Suwannawat. He played very good in the other matches losing 3-5 to Judd Trump and Robert Milkins and he bounced back after his first game loss to Laxman Rawat from India.
