'Jack Saraburi' fouls out at Crucible

- +

SHEFFIELD, England - After lighting up the Crucible with his crowd-pleasing antics, jovial snooker player Dechawat Poomjaeng was left with a scowl on his face at the world championship after three straight misses. 

Dechawat, widely known by his nicknam Jack Saraburi, failed to hit a red ball three times in a row during his second-round match against Michael White. Under snooker's rules, three misses when a red can be hit leads to the frame being conceded.

It's only the third time a frame has been lost in such fashion at the championship.
