A nice opening session. I needed a few chances in the first two frames, but I managed to win them and race into a 5-0 lead, with three centuries and an 80. Barteek responded by winning two of the last three frames, just missing out on a century when he snookered himself on the final green on 97. I managed to add another century, a superb total clearance of 153, with a blue as the first colour and all blacks after that. It should be a decent contender for the highest break.

We continue tomorrow. :)

High quality snooker in the second session, with six centuries between us. Barteek had a lot of bad luck in the first two frames, so I was able to completely take control of the match with another series of centuries. Barteek then fought back from 10-2 down with two centuries of his own, but it was too late to get back into the match, as I won the last three frames to put myself into the semi-finals.

It was a nice game, very open, with high scoring from both players. Thanks for the game and good luck in 2016. :)
