I'm in correspondence with PTP and he seems genuine, though that could be a red herring as I'm still not unconvinced its one of the Northants lot on a windup.
I have to say Chris that he gave a name that is familiar to me which leads me to believe that he could be genuine. :)
Apologies to Pete if he is :)

I played in the Wellingborough 4-pin league for one summer season years ago. I found that the game was won and lost AFTER the bar had dropped because all scores are then doubled, including the requisite 200 last ball shot where, if the red was kept for it, 800 could be scored. If you bear in mind that good scores were in the region of 1500 - 2500, you will see that the first 15 mins of the game were almost irrelevant.
It was probably on another thread where the 4-pin game was being discussed. No time to search myself (just back from my latest bb disaster and very tired) but I did play this for one season many years ago
I have visited the Wellingborough 4 pin league since honchair moved up there. The 4 pins are over the main pockets, 30 and 10 holes reversed. I am assured by one of their players that the perfect break pushes the red to the 20 or 10 and leave the white so next shot you stun the red into the 200 pocket off that white!
You have to play the red if available, an alternative is to have the peg in front of the 100 as a second black!!
The bar did seem to run over 15 minutes!
A little white horse walks into a bar.......puts his hoofs on the bar.......and says to the barman........can I have a whisky please........
