Scottish veteran Graeme Dott was sent packing in the fourth round of the qualifiers at the World Championships in Sheffield.
Tian Pengfei defeated him 10-7 and scored heavily throughout. He took the first four frames with breaks of 82, 108, 110 and 78, and added three more 50-plus breaks, including a 114 to keep him in contention.
While Dott was in decent form himself, with half-centuries of his own, it was the Chinese player who won out to reach the tournament proper.
