In a tough competition at the Gibraltar Open, White achieved his best result of the season with a 4-2 win over number 14 in the world, Bingham

58-year-old Whirlwind saved his best to the end and ended the win with a flowing break of 74 to face Chinese Chen Zifan in the third round

White, a 10-time ranking event winner in his 41st year Year on tour, said: “It was a strange game and at the beginning we both had problems and we couldn’t be satisfied”

“But he missed an easy one in the end and gave me a good chance. I put that into practice and it was great to finish on a visit like this when it really mattered in a match

“I’ve really had problems with the tournaments this season. The excitement is there and I’ve played some good players, but I didn’t produce

“After winning this game and a couple of games here, I hope to be able to relax a bit and develop a shape right from the start in the next game

“I was a big second favorite against Stuart … I’m a big second favorite against most people these days but when I play well I know I can win

“There are no easy games, the game against Chen won’t be played on a TV table like this one, but sometimes that’s better. You worry about being missed on TV, it can be embarrassing!” “

Meanwhile, it took Mark Allen a big chance in the last black to beat 15-year-old Iulian Boiko before calling his display “embarrassingly bad”

Former Masters champion Allen made it 4: 3 against tour rookie Boiko from Ukraine in the third round

The 35-year-old Allen from Northern Ireland was 3: 1 behind, but had a great stroke of luck after his 3: 3 win at the decision maker’s last ball

Allen said, “I missed the safety on the black by a mile in the end and made it, it’s one of those games I want to forget as quickly as possible

“I don’t think this has ever happened to me before Get such a coincidence at match point”

“I was embarrassingly bad and that was one of the worst in the first few days, from start to finish a little worrying to be honest

“But I’m still there, so I have to go to the training table and maybe the next round will be different”
