2019 Reventon Masters updates

QUARTER FINAL RESULTS

The quarter finals produced some incredible displays of skill as each player was determined to book their place in tomorrow’s semi finals.

 

Fortunately for our referees, only one match required a deciding frame but somehow was also the first match to produce a result.

 

THE MIFSUD SHOWDOWN

There were a further 2 centuries in this round: a first frame 102 by James Mifsud only seeming to inspire Joe Minici who reacted with a 103.

 

The Mifsud showdown as mentioned kicked off with James producing a century, he then moved out to a 2 nil lead before his brother notched up not just one frame but three of the next 4 levelling scores at three apiece.

 

This was where Steve had just too many answers for James going on to win 4-3.

 

JOE MINICI v BEN JUDGE

Joe Minici and Ben Judge had the slowest match of the round but should have finished much earlier after Joe moved out to a 3-1 lead including the above century needing only one more to clinch victory.

 

To Ben’s credit he fought the whole way taking the next frame and nearly the next one but Joe was too strong and eventually won 4-2.

 

KURT DUNHAM v SOURAV KOTHARI

Kurt Dunham and Sourav Kothari were involved in a tense affair trading blows splitting the first four frames.

Sourav relied heavily on his billiards skills trapping Kurt in some high quality snookers that allowed him to clear the balls in the sixth frame to also win 4-2.

 

JOHL YOUNGER v TYSON CRINIS

Our last two quarter finalists of Johl Younger and Tyson Crinis also produced a great match to watch for the spectators and nearly required a seventh frame to split them.

 

Johl was roughly 20 points behind in the sixth needing to pot all the balls to win and after some cagey play managed to do just that and claim his place in the last four.

 

SEMI FINALS (11am Sunday)

After surviving these matches, I am pleased to announce that our Reventon Masters semi finals are to have Steve Mifsud against Johl Younger with the victor to proceed into the final against the winner of Joe Minici and Sourav Kothari.
