|Open Knockout Competition 2009|
The Open Knockout Final was held in the
Talbot on 23rd September 2009, and after the first round the four highest
scorers were Mike Turner (82), Dave Cooper and Nigel Walker (both 81) and
Ted Randles 76. Of particular note, Mike Turner scored 29 his first
stick and then proceeded to play the best stick of the night, scoring a
magnificent 53, his final shot being a 1 off the cushion to 'fill them
In the final itself, Nigel won the toss
and elected to go first. He played brilliantly and scored 43 + 47 =
90 and it looked a tall order for Dave to follow. However, Dave
played perfectly and potted every ball until he had scored 52 and was left
with one ball and the 1 cup to go for. He could not quite equal
Mike's shot and missed the cup by a 1/4", but still scored 52 which left
39 needed for victory.
The general consensus of those present was that it was the best final ever as no-one could remember two players both getting 90+ in a final before.
Congratulations to Dave who received the winners trophy for the second year running (and £300!), and to Nigel who received the Runners-up trophy and £150.
Thanks also to Pat at the Talbot for hosting the event, and for the excellent buffet which was much appreciated by all.
On a personal note, I would like to thank Dave Cooper, Ray Lamb and
Mike Turner for their help in refereeing throughout the competition,
all of the pubs and clubs for hosting the competition, and each and every
entrant for making the whole thing such a success. The
competition will be back in 2010!!! John P.
