An interesting game of snooker...

My play was atrocious in the first half of the match. I wasted chance after chance, always breaking down on something like 30. Neil missed a few himself, but he was still by far the better player and took a 3-0 and a 4-1 lead. I somehow scrapped my way back to 4-4, but again failed to take the lead, as Neil made a good break to go 5-4 ahead.

After that I played my absolute best snooker, finishing with five centuries, including four total clearances in the last four frames. The highlight was my first 155 break in a very long time.

I will have to repeat my play from the second half of the match to have a chance of winning the final. As for Neil, congratulations to him for reaching the semi-finals of such a big tournament, and well done for not being afraid to take control of the match early on. He scored alright and competed in the safety, his only weakness really was leaving long reds on from the break-off shot.

Thanks for a good game and good luck next month. :)
