Another big game of 278 from Tseng put the Hong Kong national bowler in front as his compatriot and top qualifier, Wu Siu Hong, who almost shot the tournament's first 300 but settled for 299, to take up second spot.

Despite a 215 in the fourth, Wu took over the lead and followed it up with consistent scores of 259, 223, 214, 237, 238 and 247 to end the round with 2404 and advanced in to the knockout stage as top seed.

Khaled settled for fifth spot with 2246 with a second Thai, Annop Arromsaranon firing 256, 238, 246 and 258 in his last four games to earn his place in the quarter-finals in sixth position with 2243.

UAE's sole survivor, Shaker Al Hassan took seventh position with 2202 while a third Hong Kong national bowler, Joshua Chow snatched the final and eighth spot with 2187.

2009 TOC champion, Ryan Lalisang of Indonesia and last year's TOC champion, Hussain Al Suwaidi of UAE both failed to advance.
