The world no.54 from Bexhill was beaten 5-2 by Thai player Passakorn Suwannawat in round two of the Shanghai Masters Qualifiers on Tuesday afternoon.

Robertson won the opening two frames at the World Snooker Academy in Sheffield, but world no.89 Suwannawat, the 2011 Asian Championship winner, proceeded to reel off five in a row with a top run of 110.

St Leonards-based world no.18 Mark Davis, who beat World Championship runner-up at the Australian Goldfields Open two weeks ago, will enter the tournament at the final qualifying round stage tomorrow (Thursday).
