How many????......63 start I had to give in round 1 against a young lad called tom, to be fair he has not been playing long & he can pot balls but not off the back cush! this frame was easier than I thought and I was in front with 5 reds left on, so into the 2nd round which was in fact the Q/F.
In the Q/F I had to give 30 start to a player from the 1st Div of the bolton league who on reflection should have been off around the same as me, maybe 5 or 10 start but 30 proved too many. It's really difficult to give a good player that start when they can play good safety off the back cush, seems a little harsh buy hey I did have 2 good chances to put a good break together only to fail miserably with the pace of the table, like I had done all night to be honest, so I can't complain.
Jamie fared little better than me going out in the Q/F to Phil, giving him 22 start, which to be fair is rubbish, they should have been off levels, the h'cap for phil is all wrong, that's all I'm saying.
Maybe next time??
