Well, a marathon eight hours of snooker in one session. It was not the highest quality match you could see, but it was certainly exciting.

There were some good safety battles, a couple of really nervy ones at the black end. We both also made some high breaks and won some frames from behind.

I actually had the chance to win the match 7-4, but saw a red go in when I played the split. Bieniek cleared up and won the next frame in one visit as well.

It looked like I would only get one shot in the decider, as Beniek immediately knocked a great red in and scattered the balls everywhere. He made a good 60, but broke down on frame ball. The table was a mess at that point, so a clearance would have rivalled the one I made against Dott in the UK last season. I got down to the last two reds, but lost position and had to play safe. It was Bieniek who prevailed in the safety battle though.

I can only say well played and thanks for a great game. Good luck next month. :)
