Davo Sullivan : 133, 144

An interesting battle with both players having chances in most frames even the first where Barteek scored 8 followed by Davo hit a decent 133. Barteek did well to take a 2-1 lead and was at the table in the 4th but an awkward split with reds around the black spot prevented a 3-1 lead. A precise break was required and Davo delivered to draw level at 2-2, super score that.
Barteek won the 5th frame falling short of the century hitting 93 after an early missed long red by Davo.
Davo failed again, this time on 38 but Barteek only managed 46 leaving two safe reds. Davo won the safety battle, developed the remaining red and cleared to level at 3-3. In the deciding frame Barteek missed the reds leaving a freeball below the black. The brown was on the side cushion which Davo potted followed by a total clearance of 144, dropping 11 points through the break so unfortunately no supermaximum. Thanks for a great match, enjoyed the challenge.
