NewsThe qualifiers rounds for the 2012 Welsh Open start today in the Academy in Sheffield.

Steve Davis 4-3 Ricky Walden

Ricky looked out of sorts for a big part of the match and was not able to overcome Steve Davis. This means that, unfortunately, Ricky will have to qualify for the World Championship in Sheffield as this was the last tournament before the crucial cut-off.

Ricky is due to play on Saturday, February 11 at 10 am for a possible clash with Ali Carter at the venue.

in the press Ö Snooker: Steve Davis may stand between Bagilltís Ricky Walden and a place in world top 16

Feb 9 2012
by Alec Doyle, Flintshire Chronicle
RICKY Walden is in line to face six-time world champion Steve Davis in the final qualifying round for the Welsh Open at the World Snooker Academy in Sheffield on Saturday.
The snooker legend will set up a meeting with Bagilltís world number 18 Walden if he wins his third qualifying round match tomorrow.
Walden will go into the seven-frame clash on the back of a 5-2 second-round defeat to world number six Shaun Murphy in the last 16 of the German Masters in Berlin on Thursday night.
If Walden comes through Saturdayís challenge, he will go into the Welsh Open next week for the final tournament before the seeding cut-off for the World Championships.
If Walden can deliver his best at the Welsh Open, he could nail a top 16 place before the cut-off, guaranteeing his place in the main draw for the World Championships in April without needing to enter the qualifiers, as only those outside the top 16 are required to battle for their place.
After the Welsh Championships, Walden will head to Haikou for the China Open.

It took seven attempts over seven years for the old maestro to beat Ricky . . . and then he went on to beat Ali Carter with patient break building to reach the final 16.

No wonder he has accumulated millions . . . he has a mind of steel, fantastic spirit and enjoys himself

Good lessons to learn
