Maltese snooker player experienced mixed fortunes at the European Championships that are currently being played at the Dolmen Hotel.
Philip Ciantar maintained his strong run of form when he brushed aside Dutch player Mario Whermann 4-0.
It was another impressive display from the Maltese player who has now set up a Last 64 clash against David Vaitzman of Israel.
Ciantar has a tough task on his hands as his Israeli opponent is only one of three players who have yet to drop a frame in the tournament.
There was heartache for Aaron Busuttil as the Maltese player lost a tense decider against Finnish player Robin Hull to bow out of the tournament 4-3.
It looked as though Busuttil was set to complete an impressive fightback against Hull and looked on course for victory when he led in the final frame.
But the Maltese player could not finish the job as Hull used all his experience as a professional snooker player to prevail.
Frans Mintoff also bowed out of the tournament after he suffered a 4-0 defeat to Israel player Eden Sharav, who compiled a best break of 60 during the match.
