BWPPA Tour Stop 3, Liverpool

16th – 17th June 2012

This was the first event in 7 years I’ve not been ranked number one, so I was determined to do well.  The first day went to plan as I was playing some good pool.  I won all 3 matches beating Adam Pearson, Frankie Gillen and Aslam AbuBaker, securing a semi final spot.

Sunday morning saw me against the old enemy Danny Luton and unfortunately the match didn’t produce the level of pool both players were capable of.  I lost the match 7 – 4 and was really disappointed the way I played.

Without trying to make excuses I do feel my role as chairman is having an impact on my game, I’m just finding it difficult switching off from Chairman to Player role.   It’s something I need to address as I’m finding the weekends more stressful than enjoyable.
