The end of the first Season 3 month sees Jason and I level on games won, however, I have fallen short on frames won and number of centuries. These should not matter too much, but given how close it was last season, I have learned that every frame and every century could count in the long run.
After a tense end to the second season of Snooker Nation, having lost it not by matches won or frames won but number of centuries, it was nice to start season 3 with a clean slate and no pressure. Jason did well and won the match 6 frames to 1 in a best of 11 while picking up the only century break of 117 in the 4th frame. I am a little disappointed that I lost, but since it’s the start of the season, there will be many more opportunities.
I played much better this week, winning 6 frames to 3 in a best of 11. I got my first century break of the season of 108 in the 1st frame, however Jason got 2, 106 in the 2nd frame and a massive 139 in the 5th. Hopefully this is the beginning of a win streak.
Snooker Nation was incredibly buggy this week. Over the years I have found that every 4 or 5 matches or so the game crashes during one of our frames. This week however, it crashed at least 3 times and always when Jason was at the table. We resorted to me hosting the match, which seemed to stop the crashing. I felt bad for Jason, while I tried to play fair, and gave him back the advantage, it must really suck to have the game crash when you’re well on the way to winning the frame. Ultimately I won 6 frames to 5, but I am not sure I deserved it. There were two century breaks, 133 in the 1st frame belonging to me and 119 in the 3rd frame belonging to Jason.
To end the month Jason claimed victory 6 frames to 3 in a best of 11. At one point however it was looking like it could be a complete white wash for me with Jason leading 5 frames to 0. As such, I am pleased to have clawed back 3 frames so that I could at least hold my head high. There were 3 century breaks, 113 in the 3rd frame and 131 in the 5th belonging to Jason, while I got an almost last minute 103 in the 8th frame.
