Australia Day in Gloucester!!

NEIL ROBERTSON performed brilliantly in his Qualifying Match for the Wuxi Classic, in China, next month. NEIL defeated Mohammed Khairy 5-0, and, in the second frame, made his 2nd Ranking Event Maximum Clearance - 147!! There were a number of difficult shots including "cannoning" the pink on the side cushion, when potting the brown.

VINNIE CALABRESE then produced his own great performance in defeating Anthony McGill 5-3 and obtaining "a ticket to China". VINNIE hopes to travel early to China, and play in the 1st Asian PTC Event before the Wuxi Classic. This is the best possible start to the new Season on the World Snooker Tour for VINNIE.

In associated news, the 9-times World Women's Champion, REANNE EVANS, has defeated Thepchaya Un-Nooh 5-4 and will travel to China. This is REANNE's first trip there, and many Chinese fans will be delighted with this opportunity to see a Champion Lady Snooker player. REANNE will play her first match in China against NEIL, and VINNIE will play against 4-times World Champion, JOHN HIGGINS.

RONNIE - The Best Ever!!

RONNIE O'SULLIVAN and BARRY HAWKINS have produced a Final for the Ages! Ronnie triumphed 18-12, but only the Best Player We've Ever Seen could have resisted so well against an inspired Australian Goldfields Open Champion!

The other professionals now understand the level to which they must raise their game to produce incredibly entertaining Snooker that also wins matches.

NEIL ROBERTSON won 10,000 English Pounds & "The BETFAIR Golden Cue" for his break of 143, in the first round loss.

BARRY HAWKINS - Brilliant!!

Barry Hawkins, the 2012 Australian Goldfields Open Winner, has produced superb performances here in the Crucible Theatre, in Sheffield. Barry defeated World No. 1, Mark Selby, and then Ding Junhui in the Quarter-Final, both times as a "massive" underdog. After triumphing 17-14 against Ricky Walden in the Semi-Final, Barry has to face the defending Champion, Ronnie O'Sullivan, in the Final.

Ronnie had never trailed in any match this year, and lead 2-0, however, Barry produced his own high-class break-making skills and lead 3-2! Ronnie needed 2 successive centuries to lead 5-3 at the end of the afternoon session. Barry again "stormed" back to reach 7-7, after a break of 133, whereupon Ronnie produced 2 successive centuries again!

Barry was unlucky to lose a black ball game in the final frame of the evening and trails 7-10 overnight.
