The 15-year-old, from Portsmouth, climbed two places to seventh. And he was one of three players to match their highest breaks in the week-14 action.

Left-hander Russell recorded a 13, Billy Reid made an eight and Zak Truscott chalked up two 15 breaks.

Harry Wilson, 11, won the top group and closed the gap to his twin brother and league-leader Lewis to four points.
