Ireland’s Ken Doherty has suffered an early exit in the Six-Red World Championships in Bangkok, Thailand. The Dubliner went down to a 6-0 whitewash against home player Dechawat Poomjaeng.

Doherty had progressed through the preliminary round-robin stages but fell at the first knockout round hurdle. Ireland’s Robert Murphy, meanwhile, progressed into the last 16 with a 6-3 win over Wales’ Robert Pagett.

Six-red snooker is an alternative snooker format with only six red balls on the table as opposed to the standard 15. The format was designed to feature shorter frames.
