The final between Nick Davey and Gareth Hibbott wasn’t the potting festival most would have expected from these two top players, but with both players struggling to adapt to difficult table/ball conditions the match was certainly the longest we have seen for many years. Gareth initially raced into a 3-0 lead but his frustration with the reaction on the balls allowed Nick to get back into the game and at the break Nick was leading 5-4. Clearly the break came at the right time for Gareth to get his head together. The fact we didn’t see the first ‘break ‘n dish’ till the 13th frame shows how difficult the table was playing. This was definitely the turning point in the match when Gareth was clearly getting his confidence back to go 7-6 up. He then went on to win the next two frames before Nick pulled one back after a slightly over hit shot by Gareth meant he potted his yellow instead of covering the pocket as intended. What proved to be the final frame saw Nick fail to take control of the table following an in off the break from Gareth. It was a long wait for the presentations to finally get under way and our thanks go to the Volunteer Arms for hosting the semi-finals and finals and of course to Kev Catterall of County Insurance for presenting the trophies.
