England's Reanne Evans and Hong Kong's Ng On-yee continued to show why they are considered among the favourites to win the World Women's Snooker Championship after completing unbeaten group stage campaigns in Bangkok today.
World number one Evans made it a perfect four wins out of four in Group Two by registering 3-0 victories over India's Arantxa Sanchis and Malaysia's Sook Kwan Lee at the Thai capital's Hi-End Snooker Club.
Awaiting the 11-times champion in the last 16 is Australia's Jessica Woods, who beat Hong Kong's Pui Ying Mini Chu 4-1 in the last 32 after ranking second behind defending champion and world number two Ng in Group One.
Ng added a further two Group One victories to the two she managed yesterday, defeating England's Fran Calvert 3-0 and Woods 3-1.
Standing between her and a place in the quarter-finals is compatriot Yee Ting Cheung, who overcame England's Steph Daughtery 4-1 in the last 32 having finished second in Group Nine.
