What a way to finish Snooker Nation season 2. Having played 28 matches over the last 6 months, both Jason and I have won 14 matches each and, incredibly, have won 130 frames each. Under these conditions the winner is the player with the most century breaks of the season which, in this case, is Jason with 38 centuries to my 34. I however win the highest break prize having scored 3 maximum breaks of 147 to Jason’s 2, which, in itself, is pretty impressive to have 5 maximum breaks between us.
This was a pretty good result for Jason, winning 6 frames to 1 in a best of 11. I have to say, I feel like I was pretty unlucky this week, but, I can’t blame it all on bad luck as I also missed some pretty easy shots. There were no century breaks but considering this is the last month of our Snooker Nation season, a 6-1 victory is just what Jason needed.
Disaster strikes for Jason, losing 6-1 in a best of 11. Nothing seemed to go right for him while I kept getting quite lucky. Unfortunately I only capitalized enough to secure 1 century of 107 in the 3rd frame, but as the season is coming to an end, I am just happy to take the win to give me the advantage.
After the disaster Jason had last week it’s a bit of a miracle that he has kept himself in it by winning 6 frames to 1 in a best of 11 and scored 3 centuries in a row. 120 in the 3rd frame, 135 in the 4th and 102 in the 5 frame. I at least got a century of my own of 100 in the 6 frame, this however still means Jason has a 2 century lead. Ordinarily this would not matter but it could prove crucial in our final match of the season.
This is an amazing finish to our Snooker Nation season with 6 century breaks between us. The match started with Jason needing to win the match 6 frames to 4 to guarantee season 2 victory or, win 6 frames to 5 with more century breaks for the season, which he was leading by 2. I had a great start and was leading 4 frames to 0 and had two century breaks, 100 in the 1st frame and 104 in the 4th. Somehow Jason found a way to hang on and played some careful and calculated snooker to win 6 of the next 7 frames with 4 century breaks of 117 in the 5th frame, 124 in the 6th, 112 in the 9th and 110 in the 11th and final frame of the season. Somewhere in there I clawed back a frame which put us even on matches won and frames won, but Jason secures victory having scored more centuries than me in the season. I feel a little gutted, it’s like in football losing a tournament not on points or goal difference but by number of cards issued or something similar. For the most part however, I am happy that we had such a grand finale, where we both played decently, and were both in it until the final 260th frame.
