2012 Australian Mens – Perth

A summary of my matches in the 2012 Australian Mens Open held in Perth

Round 1 v Jock Capobianco

Game 1 was a scrappy game at first, having made a couple of errors and Jock hitting some good roquets. Eventually pulled my finger out and completed the triple, with a cheeky penult & rover peel when making penult. I must say it makes it easier to complete the straight double! Score 26tp-12.

2011 Australian Men’s

Australian Mens, Launceston, Tasmania

Round one of the Australian men’s championship involved quite a long match against Dean Patterson. For some reason could get going but was able to graft out and win 2-0.

In round two had to play Pete Landrebe. Surprised myself somewhat and probably Pete as well with a 2-1 win (26tp-0, 0-26tp, 26tp-3). As an aside Pete is now my triple bunny, having tripled him three times in five games 🙂 Continue reading

2011 NSW 5 & Under doubles

5 & Under doubles

Given the last week was spent moving was very grateful to share the ride with my doubles partner Stephen Richards from Goulburn up to Sydney. We both played well on day 1, despite missing a couple of opportunities to triple, won 3 from 3. On day 2 was very happy to make two breaks of nine (error free). We won our first game, however we lost the game against Pete and Tim in a close encounter 26 – 23 after Pete TPO’d Stephen with Tim for (I think it was) 4 and I was for 4back. Overall was a good weekend with Pete and Tim the eventual winners and Stephen and myself as runner-up.
