Open B-Grade and 147 Report

Posted on Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

147 Snooker

A very high standard of potting in this headed by Gordon Dong with 590 points from 7 x 21 minute frames including 117 in one frame.  In the afternoon re-draw he also had the highest score of 477 followed by Lee Rudolph with 463.  Rudolph was in front by 24 points going into the last round and looking like winning the event but Carlson failed to hit the yellow in his last round game against Dong who got 20 points before the bell went.

B-Grade Snooker

Also a time frame tournament, player of the day would have to go to Junior, Pravil Kant who played some impressive snooker end up with 4 wins in section play then beat Ashwin Kumar in the Quarter-finals 2/1, Cliff Keach in the semi-finals 2/1.  Unfortunately in the final he had a rush of blood in the final frame losing to Evan Carlson who had beaten Lee Rudolph 2/0 in the other semi-final.

This tournament was filled with suprises.  The first one was last year’s winner Greg Moreton not qualifying for Post Section play.  Veteran, Kenny Joyce in the last match of the day against Nyan Win Aye winning 2/1 to qualify as the best overall 4th much to the delight of the players staying for the Post Section Draw.  Unfortunately Joyce of course drew the No 1 qualify Henry Killian who went on to win the event.  Section One saw three players on 3 wins each top was Vinny Gounder +5 next Deepak Bala +4 and Evan Carlson +1.  Junior Mikey Stewart had a mixed day qualifying 3rd in his section but had a great day on Sunday getting through to the semi-finals where he went down to Killian 3/2.  Last 16, Henry Killian beat Kenny Joyce 3/0.  Cliff Keach beat Dave Gourley 3/1.
