Odrl : 140

Quite a scrap so far. A lot of easy chances for both players in the first two frames, no big breaks to report. I managed to take both fairly comfortably in the end.

I went for a 147 in the third frame. The reds were not easy, and I had to play two very difficult cuts on the black. The yellow was off its spot with the green on the baulk cushion, only going into one pocket. I did well to pot it. I had another problem on the pink which was also on the baulk cushion. I played an excellent positional shot off four cushions on the blue, but finished dead straight on the pink. I tried a shot with reverse side, the cue dangerously elevated, and finished near the middle pocket. The black proved to difficult for my potting skills unfortunately, so the break ended at 140. :)

The second session started with some brilliant play from both players. I managed a highest break of 14 in the first two frames, while Arekmax made a decent 50 to get back to 2-3.

I then went for another 147 and got to 89, before having to play a long black, which I missed. The last frame was another scrap, but this time I managed to take it on the final black.

Thanks for a nice game and good luck in your last match. :)
