Congratulations to Troy Brett on winning the Senior H'cap Snooker Championship by defeating Andy Diacopoulos 4-3 in an enthralling final held at BCI last night.
Andy stormed into a 2-0 lead taking the first two frames 87-10 including break of 35 and the second frame 83-1 making breaks of 24 & 30. This looked very ominous at this point.
The 3rd frame Troy potted everything in site and left Andy virtually glued to his seat, he took the frame 87-0 with breaks of 24, 34 &21, this lead to troy trailing 2-1 overall.
The fourth frame saw Andy make a spectacular 50 break taking mostly pinks as the black was tied up. Troy battled his way back and was on a 31 clearance only to miss a simple black by playing with an element of safety. A couple of shots later Troy knocked in the black to take the frame 55-54 and levelling the match 2-2
Troy took the fifth frame 59-41 with a break of 33 included, taking the lead for the first time in the match leading 3-2.
The next two frames both players failed to take chance after chance, after seeing both players struggle to pot more than 2/3 balls in any break Andy levelled the match the 3-3 by winning 65-52.
The deciding frame had the same pattern as the previous one, both Andy and Troy struggling to make any real breaks. it was nip and tuck all frame but neither player was able to take advantage of his opponents mistake. It came down to pink and black, Troy needing a snooker, he plays a fantastic shot to leave the pink a few inches from the the top pocket on the rail (yellow) then the white behind the black which was very close to the green pocket, any attempted an escape caught the pink but went went in off. Troy potted the long pink and black to take the Championship and his second title of the season.
Congratulations to Troy again and commiserations to Andy.
Many thanks to BCI and Pete Trout for allowing us the use of their fantastic facilities.

A tough draw away from home against two very capable players,
First frame Keith beat Nav in a nervy exchange on one of the Academy tables, which is a real test of cueing.
Next frame Mat beat Dave, can't remember much about it, no breaks.
The Scotch doubles was a very cagey affair, which Keith and Dave won with Nav and Mat needing snookers on the brown.
At 2-1 to K and D we played the last two frames on fwo tables. Dave knocked in a great 59 break winning his frame easily
Keith managed to win fairly comfortably with no breaks to speak of.
Always good to play Nav and Mat, never a dull moment.

Thanks for the game Jamie, thought you was going to turn it round when you won the second frame with a Loverly 27 dish from 24 behind.

End of season match for myself in what turned out to be a very mixed season but nice to end on a win.
1st frame very scrappy and cagey neither of us got going and missed plenty. I had a 20 point lead going into the colours but martin fought back and took the frame on the black.
frames 2 3 and 4 all very 1 sided I found my potting boots and raced into 20-30 point lead in all the frames martin again fought back but to no avail this time.
Being pretty much a nothing match my main aim was to get a 30+ break and even though I potted well I think by putting to much into getting a 30+ I maybe over thought myself some times on shots.
Unlucky martin and hopefully see you again soon your shoulder permitting.
