Snooker - Bingham topples Doherty to reach Asian PTC3 semis

Stuart Bingham defeated Ken Doherty 4-1 in quarter-final action at the Asian PTC3 event as English players flooded the last four in Zhengzhou City, China.

Bingham racked up his third victory of the day, with the eventual semi-finalists having made their way through the last-32 and last-16 stages in prior sessions, in overcoming the 1997 world champion.

Next up for Bingham in tomorrow’s penultimate round is compatriot Tom Ford, who also clinched a 4-1 success over local amateur Hu Hao.

The other semi-final will pit Robert Milkins, who whitewashed Cao Yupeng 4-0 in their last eight encounter, against the only remaining Chinese Li Hang, 4-2 conqueror of Zhang Anda.

The final will also take place on Friday, shortly following the semi-final results.
