Congratulations to Sean Hopkin for going one better than last year and winning this prestigious event for the first time.  It was always going to be difficult for Toby to win it three years in a row, but he certainly gave it a good go.

I managed to pop along for an hour or so and I witnessed some terrific snooker from all five competitors.  They were all a credit to Nottingham Snooker.

I took a few photographs whilst I was there and you can view them in the gallery HERE.
