HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam have left for Turkey to take part in the World Cup 3-cushion to be played between February 10 and 16.
Part of the seven-member team, Tran Quyet Chien and Ngo Dinh Nai will start with the qualification round beginning on Thursday.
The rest of the team members have to compete in the Pre-Qualification round tomorrow due to their low world rankings.
Some 155 top players are arriving in the beautiful city of Istanbul where the heavyweight local players always take the lead.
The top four players, led by Frederic Caudron of Belgium with 451 points, followed by Swiss Torbjorn Blomdahl who won convincingly in the 2013 World Cup series and has 418 points, Filipos Kasidokostas of Greece in third place with 31 points and Italian Marco Zanetti in fourth place with 311 points, are awaiting their rivals. – VNS
