Geet Sethi shrugged off a first frame deficit to thrash Kuwait's Ayyoub Alsharrah in the masters category while world champion Pankaj Advani continued his brilliant run in the men's event by defeating compatriot Sandeep Gulati in the IBSF World Snooker Championship in Hyderabad on Thursday .

After surrendering the first frame to Zammit, Sethi got his act together and struck the balls with sheer excellence to compile a nice break of 68 to draw level. 

Sethi's potting and smooth cushion work helped him win the remaining two frames. Alsharrah is yet to open his account in the prestigious event at the Hyderabad International Convention Centre. 

Sethi won 15-71 68-29 43-41 83-07 to settle for second position in Group B behind Malta's Simon Zammit.

In the men's event, National billiards and snooker champion Advani got the better off the countryman Gulati 4-1 to retain top position in his Group A from four matches.

Advani tamed Gulati, who is placed second in the same group, 98(66)-00, 70-48, 66(55)-15, 42-65, 77-41. PTI
