results and match report club 9 may day tournement

Results Saturday 5th May, Club 9 9 ball open.

Winner Sam Gibson
Runner up Paddy McLaughlin
3rd place Stephen Johnston
4th place Dan Gorman


Sam Gibson 9-6 P McLaughlin

19 player field, Total pay out including calcutta = 545.

Next month tournament with player's back from holidays should be at least 30 player field could push total prize money up tp the 1000 barrier.

There was a very stong turnout of top player's for this event and this showed in the first round with Paddy McLaughlin,Sam,Stephen Johnston,Willie,Paul canavan, the bear, Dan Gorman Gerard Elliman etc all winning their first matches.

Willie was back to his best and sailed through the first 3 rounds, Stephen "stone cold" Johnston hardly broke a sweat as he showed cool determination to dispose of his would be challengers on his way to the final stages, Billy Gorman was playing excellent pool but lady luck wasn't smiling for him as it went 8-8 against Gary Johnston,Billy had played some superb postional shots all he needed was the 9 ball into the corner pocket and at 8-8 that was too much pressure as the 9 ball rattled in the pocket and it just hung there, the cue ball tight to the rail Gary composed himself and clinced the match.Raymond Fields put in a good solid performance but came up against Club 9's finest and it was just too much.

Down to the last four, Sam, paddy, Stephen and Dan Gorman what a line up, too tight to call this one, would it be a bit of luck, a tad of experience, natural talent or sheer determination, these would all have a part to play in the outcome.

In the end maybe Sam had a little of all of the above, watching from the rails it looked liked he held the pressure when others struggled.

"thought of the day"
9 balls missed over the pockets, potting the 9 ball then the cue ball straight into the pocket to lose the game, miss cueing off the break, why does this happen in important matches who knows, but that's what makes 9 ball so entertaining to watch and it all happened at club 9's tournament.

So once again well done Paddy, stephen and Dan but this time the hounors must go to Sam for winning a very very tough tournament. one thing is for sure the standard is getting better with every tournament and now there is great excitement for next month's Club 9 tournament where the prize money could exceed the 1000 target.
