Fifteen-time World champion Pankaj Advani advanced to the quarter-finals of the IBSF World Snooker Championship after two successive victories in Doha.

Defending his 2015 title, Advani stayed on course with identical victories in the last-32 and the Round of 16 matches. The ace cueist overcame Pakistan's Babar Masih and then Keen Hoo Moh of Malaysia with 5-3 scorelines.

The last-16 tie against the Malaysian included a stunning 126 break
