Odrl : 147 | Attilahun : 147, 118

Very very lucky to win this match. It was very even throughout, but I had two outrageous flukes that ultimately made the difference.

I won the first frame with a decent break, then took a liberty in the next one and left an opening for Attilahun. He made a textbook 147 break, never in trouble. It was his first tournament maximum, so well done to him. :)

I then prevailed in the next frame on the colours. The key shot was my ambitious attempt to pot the yellow, which ended up as a snooker and won me the frame. Attilahun made it 2-2 with another century, then I won an unremarkable 5th frame to go within one of victory.

I had the first chance in the next frame, potted the early balls, then played a stupid hit-and-hope positional shot, instead of playing with more control. I ended up with nothing easy, so I went for an extremely thin cut. I almost missed the red altogether, then the white hit a red on the side cushion and doubled it in the opposite middle, insanely lucky. After that I went for a 147 and secured the match.

Thanks for the game and good luck for the rest of the tournament. :)
