Three former tournament champions were knocked out during the preliminaries yesterday morning. In the quarters, Kruch Chantarith will take on Samrith Ser, Chan Brathna will face Keo Vanank, Seng Chan will play Su Sophy and Pav Sonkna vies with Cheav Bora.

According to event organisers, each quarter-final will be settled by a first to two victories format.
