NEWLY crowned 6-red champion Lim Kok Leong continued his impressive form to reach the semi-finals of the snooker singles competition in Hanoi.
Kok Leong, who is from Penang, brushed aside the 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games gold medallist Siththideth Sakbieng of Laos 4-1 in the quarter-finals to be assured of a second medal last night.
Kok Leong won the first two frames (73-0, 83-30) before Siththideth fought back to win 62-55.
However, Kok Leong handled the situation well after that to take victory 60-48 and 70-40.
Standing in Kok Leong’s way and a place in the final is Thailand’s Passakorn Suwannawat, a former world amateur runner-up.
Passakorn beat Win Ko Ko of Myanmar 4-1 in the quarter-finals.
