Gilbert dominates morning session, nears quarter-finals at Cazoo World Championship

Posted : 26 April 2024

David Gilbert displayed exceptional form in the morning's second session, notching back-to-back centuries and inching closer to a quarter-final berth at the Cazoo World Championship with a commanding 12-4 lead over Robert Milkins. Gilbert's momentum stems from his thrilling victory over defending champion Luca Brecel in the opening round, placing him on the brink of his second Crucible quarter-final appearance after his 2019 semi-final run, marred by a heartbreaking defeat to John Higgins.


Despite entering the match with a 5-3 deficit against Gilbert, world number 16 Milkins faces a daunting task to avoid elimination unless he orchestrates a remarkable comeback. Milkins, buoyed by a crucial 10-9 triumph over Pang Junxu in the first round, aims to salvage his position in the top 16 amidst stiff competition.


In a session marked by Gilbert's dominant performance, Milkins struggled to find his rhythm, visibly affected by apparent discomfort in his neck. Despite clinching the tenth frame to narrow the gap to 6-4, Milkins faltered, allowing Gilbert to assert his dominance with successive frames and impressive breaks, leaving him on the brink of victory. The conclusion of their encounter awaits in the evening session, promising further suspense and drama at 7pm.
