The MTL Plate final saw Gedling take on Spot on Bears at BCI

PIotr 1-0 Glenn
Dan 0-1 Rob
Dan 1-0 Adam
Harvey 0-1 Glenn
Piotr 0-1 Adam
Harvey 1-0 Rob

So after 6 frames it was 3-3 some good close frames non more so than the 1st between Piotr and Glenn which went to a re-spot black and the final frame saw Rob coast to a 30+ point lead but some juicy run of the ball on 2 occassions and the miss rule coming into force Harvey saw Harvey gain about 30 points in fouls and towards the end a bad DDK saw rob stick the pink over the corner pocket for harvey to take us to a 7th frame shootout.

Dan choose himself with Glenn chosing Adam to play the decider.

Fair to say Dan never really got going in this frame a few teen breaks and some good solid potting from Adam saw him ease to victory.

So Congratulations go to Gedling who are this years Winter MTL Plate winners and hard luck to Spot On Bears who put up a good battle in a tight final

Also many thanks to BCI for the use of the tables.

Congratulations to Chris Winter on reaching the NBSA Senior Championship final.

Chris easily defeated Wayne Martin to setup the final with Keith Holgate.

Frame 1: A tight frame with Chris making a nice 35 break to take the opener.

Frame 2: Another tight one, this time it was Wayne with a break of 38 to level things up.

Frame 3: Chris making an opening 39 break, Wayne had a great chance to get back in the frame but poor position stopped this. Chris then punished Wayne with a great 80 clearance to get the lead again.

Frame 4: Chris gettimg 30 plus in front, Wayne came back to within a point. Great opportunity for Wayne to win the frame but a missed green off the spot and other simple misses allowed Chris to deservedly take the frame and match.

Well done Chris, definetly the better player on the night. Good luck in the final.

For anyone not familiar with 6 red rules, the main differences to standard snooker are:-
1.  There are only 6 reds obviously.
2.  There is a five-miss rule (not 3 or unlimited)
3.  If you do not hit the object ball on the fifth miss then your opponent has ball in hand (which is often end of frame)
4.  If you snooker behind the ball you hit/nominate it is a foul (no roll -ups)
5.  The remaining rules are the same.

Congratulations to BCI Masters on winning the Tuesday Cup

Masters won a close match played in the right spirit.  No shoulder barging at any point.

Nick Bentley 2-0 Geoff Merry
James Robinson 1-0 Andy Carnell
Paul Bell 0-1 Andy Carnell
Cary Davies 1-1 Joe Major
Troy Brett 1-1 Don Marry

Nick Bentley had a 48 break helping him to a 2-0 win over Geoff Merry.  On the other table Joe looked on course for a 2-0 but Cary turned it around to put his team in pole position.

Andy Carnell battled hard to win his second frame against Paul Bell after dropping his first frame to the opposing captain - James Robinson.  Unfortunately for Andy it was to no avail as Troy Brett had already won his second frame with a 56 break to draw with Don Merry and haul his team over the line.

Congratulations again to the winners and thanks to Mapperley for playing your part in a good match.  Finally, many thanks to Lynne Howard and the Spot On Team for supporting the event (cheers Casey).



A quick reminder to captains that the entries for the summer leagues need to be in before the AGM on 17th May.  Also all summer singles league entries need to be in by the same date.  There is a link to the entry forms at the top of the page.  Alternatively contact a member of the committee and let us know you wish to enter.

Stapleford Cue Club Win the Monday Cup

The MTL cup final saw BCI Elites take on Stapleford.

In order of play

The 1st match to finish was between Joe Reynolds and K Oneil, Joe pretty much romped to victory in this as K oneil struggled somewhat. On the other table it was Ben cooper v Mike Lee this was a close frame to begin with but mike soon found his potting boots and dominated the frame in the end.

Joe Reynolds was back in the action on the other table this time playing Stapleford's Joe Trout, this was quite a close frame but it was BCIs Joe that won it on the blue (I think) a hop skip and a jump over to the other table saw the battle of big guns Wayne martin taking on Ben Monk, Ben took a early 40 point lead but Wayne came back was pretty much neck and neck from then on but Ben pulled away again to level the match at 2-2.

Wayne then took on Ant Mcmahon (welcome back Ant) while Ben took on Phil Minchin. Ant struggled somewhat at the start with the pace of the table but one thing for sure is he still knows how to pot a ball and did pull out some gems, the frame was back and forth but it was Ant who came out on top. Ben and Phil were having a bit long battle on the other table and it looked like it was going to go the way of BCI with Ben leaving Phil needing a snooker with 18 on and one thing you know for sure is Phil will never chuck the towel in, Phil got his snooker and despite ben having chances to win the frame he couldn't capitalise, Phil took his chances to win frame and match for stapleford.

J Reynolds 1-0 K Oneil
B Cooper 0-1 M Lee
J Reynolds 1-0 J Trout
W Martin 0-1 B Monk
W Martin 0-1 A Mcmahon
B Cooper 0-1 P Minchin

Well done Stapleford and hard luck to BCI Elites

Also a shout out and thanks to Spot on Sneinton for the use of the tables.

This was played at Spot On Sneinton, table 9

This semi final match was tense from the very first break off. Both players making small contributions and near the end of the frame it was wayne who pinched it on the pink ball (i could have had a respot black) which wayne missed and rolled into black pocket.

2nd Frame i had to up my game as wayne was struggling and not having is A game. I played some very good safety and snookers to keep wayne off the table and managed to also pot some great balls along the way to take the frame. 1-1

3rd frame was very similar to the previous frame but managed to get some distance in score and took the frame. Wayne was coming back strong but left me easy yellow to take that frame.

4th frame . I eventually had some fluency and started to pot some good balls and put a decent 30 odd break in this frame and could have been 40 , dont really remember . 3-1

5th frame , it went down to the final few reds and had some luck by not leaving wayne on a few times i missed, but when i did get in i managed to get 40 plus break to take frame and match.

Wayne definitely struggled and i know his game and is one of the grittiest and tough opponents in notts snooker and im happy that managed to compete to a decent level.

So off on holiday then Notts Am final against Bash McSood.
