Fantastic 147 break from the master Stephen Hendry in the 1st round of the 2012 World Championships in sheffield....enjoy.
Today I have been playing in the last 8 of the NW Individuals Snooker comp held at Squires snooker club in Lancaster. I was drawn against Ste Whalley from Preston in the Q/F and played well, together with a good bit of running to eventually win 4-1. I was then drawn against professional Craig Steadman and although he was always going to be too good for me I didn't disgrace myself, played some excellent safety, acknowledged by Craig later but I didn't score enough when in the balls and eventually lost 4-1. Well played Craig.
On Saturday night me and 8 others went to Hoddlesden Con Club to see World No3 Mark Williams in an exhibition match in which I was one of 10 players due to play a frame with him. So when I get there I have to pick a card to determine when i'm on, of course I pick a 10! which means I am on last.....i might have had a few cider's by then.
So we settle down to watch the best welshman of all time, and oh how good was he, breaks of 93, 80, 75, 123, 90, 131...on he went hardly missing a ball.
It was my time to play around 10:30, the frame lasted 16 minutes, the room fell silent and I played a good game potting some great balls to win on the black 58-49!.....everyone went wild it was great fun, of course mark could have won if he hadn't taken a few exhibition shots but the fact was I was the only player to score a few points against him and I did alright , the new Mike Wooldridge cue working wonders haha
I am trying to upload the video of the frame for posterity but am having a few difficulties, I will persevere.
