Barry Holt 8,490* v Terry Molloy 2,520 Barry whipped the 100 hole with his first split and came off at the back of the table. Terry made a solid start before missing on 2.5k, Barry had to work hard to get the break back but made enough next visit. 1-0
Dave Ingram 8,560 v Dave Jones 2,580* Dave J looked comfortable to start with but then managed to 4 times the break trying to put his one up near to the 50 hole, I broke down on 6.5k giving Dave with just about enough time to catch me but he came off on 2.5k leaving me to finish off. 2-0
Martin Cole 0* v Alan Hitchman 3,650 A strange start to this game with Martin pegging his opening 3k plus break and then Alan also pegging a 4k opener. Nothing went right for Martin after that and a couple of breaks from Alan pulled the Alex back into the game. 2-1
Steve Beach 4,560 v Chris Cox 8,110* Chris opened with just over 5k, Steve replied with 2k and then got the break back again but was off again just after another 2k, Chris got the break back again to make sure and level the match. 2-2
Barry & Dave 7,680* v Chris & Terry 1,280 Barry came off early but Chris never settled during his opening break, catching the split too thick. I got the break back and then had to play a wide range of recovery shots to keep the break going before touching up with about 4 minutes left to take the win. 3-2
Enjoyable evening in good company, many thanks to the Henty for the usual warm welcome and a very tasty Chilli Con Carne with Rice.
