In Snooker China's Ding Junhui took on Welshman Jamie Jones in the third round of the UK Championship. This event has, so far, been a good one for players from Wales with Jones's countrymen Mark William and Mathew Stevens also booking their places in the next phase and despite Ding being ranked 5th in the world, he would also be on the losing end to a man from the vally.
