With just 1 more month of the Snooker Nation season Jason and I are playing, with only 4 games in hand, each match is more vital than ever before. At the end of May I have a two game advantage which means I will need to win 2 of the next 4 games to guarantee victory whereas Jason will need to win all 4. If I win 1 game and Jason 3, it will come down to frames won difference.
This is perhaps the best Snooker Nation match Jason has ever played. I don’t think he missed a single shot and won 6 frames to 3 in a best of 11 while securing 3 century breaks including an impressive maximum break of 147 in the 3rd frame, 128 in the 5th and 135 in the 8th frame. To be fair, I didn’t play especially bad and got a century of my own of 133 in the 4th frame.
Compared to the previous match, this was the polar opposite for Jason who missed shot after shot which ultimately cost him the match by losing 6 frames to 3 in a best of 11. I didn’t play especially well but did secure 2 century breaks, 130 in the 1st frame and 100 in the 9th and final frame. Jason did at least get a century of his own of 104 in the 4th frame, but I get the feeling this a match he will not want to remember.
This was not a good match for either of us. Both Jason and I missed a lot of easy shots and made some terrible mistakes. Ultimately however, Jason won 6 frames to 3 in a best of 11. There was just 1 century break of 122 in the 3rd frame belonging to me.
Once again both Jason and I played poorly which is strange statement to make as I did score a maximum break of 147 in the 5th frame. This however was the only century of the evening and the only ‘clean’ frame with the others being scrappy at best. I did however win 6 frames to 3 in a best of 11, not that either of us deserved to win. With just over 1 month to go of our second Snooker Nation season, we have only 5 games in hand with me leading 13-10. With this in mind Jason can only afford to let me win 1 more game if he has any chance of winning the season, and even then he will need to beat me on frames won difference.
Yet another poor match but Jason did play a bit better than the last couple of matches. This time he won 6 frames to 3 in a best of 11. There were 3 century breaks in total, Jason had 101 in the 3rd frame while I had 108 in the 5th frame and 101 in the 7th frame. Could this be the start of a 5 match win streak needed to win Snooker Nation season 2?
