Indian cueman Pankaj Advani's history-making run at the Wales Open came to an end with a 5-2 quarter-final defeat by Judd Trump in Newport on Friday.
The 27-year-old from Pune had become the first Indian to reach the last eight of a snooker ranking event when he defeated Graeme Dott 4-1 on Thursday.
But Advani, a former world billiards champion, saw his hopes of further progress in south Wales dashed by world number two Trump.
Advani then gamely prevented a whitewash and overcame a 58-point deficit in the sixth frame before Trump sealed victory.
