Nicky Brett saw his dream of a second World Indoor Singles title dashed yesterday.
The Huntingdon IBC star - winner of the title in 2016 - suffered a second-round exit of the major tournament.
He was beaten 2-8 6-6 by Mervyn King at Hopton-on-Sea.
King was always in control of the opening set, but Brett stormed into a 6-1 lead after five ends of the second set.
But King battled back to within one shot before drawing a single in the final end to advance to the quarter-finals.
