This month both Jason and I scored a maximum break of 147 and, with a lot more time on our hands, we squeezed in 7 matches. We have agreed however that we shouldn’t play more than once a week moving forward as we both found that playing too often took the fun out of the game. I have ended the April with a 3 match lead which is pretty big given that there are only two months left of our second Snooker Nation season.
A nice start for me this month winning 6 frames to 4 in a best of 11, putting me ahead on matches won. I got lucky this match as at one stage I was down 4 frames to 1 but somehow managed to win 5 frames in a row to claim victory. There were three century breaks, 101 in the 3rd and 133 in the 5th frame belonging to Jason, I myself secured a break of 136 in the 8th frame.
Winning this match 6 frames to 5 in a best of 11 gives me a 2 match win streak. There were 4 century breaks in total, I got 122 in the 1st frame which incidentally could have been my 3rd maximum break of 147 if I hadn’t of messed up the positioning on the final green ball. I also got 131 in the 11th and final frame. Jason bagged 2 centuries of his own, 114 in the 4th and 109 in the 8th frame.
Jason ends my win streak beating me 6 frames to 4 in a best of 11 and, perhaps more importantly, scores a break of 147 in the 4th frame, the maximum break possible in a game of snooker. This is after 438 hours of Snooker Nation playtime and is an excellent achievement which I captured in the video below. Jason also scored 111 in the 7 frame which further demonstrates how well he played this week.
After the domination Jason showed in our last match, including scoring a maximum break of 147, I am relieved to have won this match 6 frames to 3 in a best of 11. There were numerous opportunities for me to score century breaks but I was not able to capitalize. As a result Jason scored the only century for the evening of 115 in the 3rd frame.
I felt a little bad after this match. At times I was somewhat lucky with the balls but from the offset Jason had all the bad luck, resulting in me winning 6 frames to 2 in a best of 11 with the only century break of 139 in the 7th frame. We agreed that we have been playing far too much Snooker Nation lately. With this extra time on our hands we have been playing more than we normally would which is taking the fun out of it. Perhaps it’s time we looked at playing a different game as well as Snooker Nation while we, more so I, have all this spare time.
This was a far more enjoyable match, we both played really well and it could have gone either way. In the end I was victorious winning 6 frames to 4 in a best of 11. There were 4 century breaks between us, Jason got a massive 141 in the 2nd frame and 119 in the 8th. I am chuffed to get a 147 in the 3rd frame which makes 3 maximum 147 breaks in my Snooker Nation career. I also scored a break of 106 in the 9th frame.
After winning 3 matches in a row, Jason once again breaks my win streak winning 6 frames to 3 in a best of 11. I am slightly annoyed with myself because the shots I missed were by a large margin. Usually, when missing, the ball will rattle around the pocket but most of my misses this week were not even remotely close. There were 3 centuries, Jason scored 104 in the 5th frame and 128 in the 8th frame where as I got a massive 142 in the 7 frame.
