Welsh Open star throws cue on the floor in anger after Mark Allen collapse | Other | Sport

Then in the very next frame, early into the contest, Allen attempted a long pot that did not find the pocket and as Yupeng got up out of his seat with an opportunity to set up a potentially match-winning break, a huge slice of luck went against him.

After rattling the jaw, Allen’s red crashed back into the pack and an accidental plant sent one of the reds straight into the middle pocket. The World Grand Prix semi-finalist was forced to remain sat down as Allen took that frame, before overcoming another huge lead to avoid a very early scare in Llandudno.

Yupeng will have no one to blame but himself, however, having let a huge chance slip in the deciding frame and his reaction to throw a cue onto the floor suggested that he was well aware of the opportunity wasted.
