Charlie lost to Vince (Vince choosing all the right shots)
Paul (6k) beat Yvonne
Dave (6k) beat Sheila
Clive made a pig's ear of it v Terri who played exceptionally well and at one stage banged in a 1600 break. (Put me under pressure and forced a bad shot - twice - at the end as I drew level.....Justice was done !)
so we had a 'Desmond' which set up the decider between Martin and James:
First Martin blew a winning break by missing a straight ball to the left hand 30 and the bar went soon after.
James then did a touchup when he thought he was in front by enough. Gasps from his teammates as he wasn't (one more 50 pot would have done it) Martin potted a couple and James went to the table needing 200 for a win or 100 for a tie. He went for 200 but pulled up short. Martin potted the 100 at the second attempt despite thinking he had over-hit the shot.
Good grass roots billiards, Oak's winning run continues, but all could change as next week we visit the League Leaders.

Taz lost to Denise Ian lost to Mick Mike lost to Tom Pete beat Genette Taz lost Martin
First game on the refurbished Bricks table, nice and fast, break, one up and split very good but lots of scores lost last night as the balls came back much faster than they go up the table, taking out a lot of white pegs and nearly some blacks, Genette losing 2 2000 plus breaks which would have won the game, Mick and Denise also losing breaks but recovering to win there matches, playing last gave me the advantage and I took no chances finishing with 6.5K and no pegs! Looks like this could be a very good top with a couple of little tweaks.
