World champion Luca Brecel dumped out of Masters by Jack Lisowski

Jack Lisowski produced a stunning performance to defeat world champion Luca Brecel and book his place in the quarter-finals of the Masters at Alexandra Palace.

Lisowkski, who has failed to win a major trophy after losing finals in six ranking events, was in brilliant form as he wrapped up a 6-2 victory over the second seed. 

The 32-year-old reeled off five fifty-plus breaks, as well as a century, to out the Belgian Bullet. Brecel started sloppily, missing chances in the opening frame before succumbing to a clearance of 70.

Lisowski followed with an even 100 break to double his lead, the 300th century of his career, and fell just four short of another as he took advantage of a potted white to move into a commanding position at 3-0.

The walkover continued in the next frame before Brecel put together 72 and 80 to half the deficit. That was as good as it got for him, with Lisowski regaining control to take the next two and confirm a statement result.

Lisowski will face either Shaun Murphy or Anda Zhang in the quarter-finals, which will take place on Thursday and Friday.
