Jimmy White’s hopes of reaching the Crucible for the first time in 13 years were dashed by Ali Carter in the World Championship qualifiers.
Carter, ranked 19th in the world and a two-time runner-up at the Crucible, beat the 56-year-old White 10-4 in the second round of qualifying at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.
White, who lost in six world championship finals, was two wins away from a return to the Crucible after his 10-5 victory over Ross Bulman on Saturday.
