Yasin Merchant notched the tournament's highest break of 134 en route to the knock-out round of the ONGC-IBSF World snooker championship here on Thursday along with other Indians, including Pankaj Advani and Geet Sethi.

Merchant, the former Asian and National champion, posted the 134 in the first frame against Pakistan's Mohammed Asif who, despite a brave fight, could not stop the Indian from posting a 4-1 win. Asif, with three wins, however, qualified for the knock-out rounds. In the women's category, Vidya Pillai topped her group by winning all her five matches.
