Senior Grand Prix Winner - Tony Kay
Senior Grand Prix Runner Up - Dave Styles
National Senior Grand Prix 2011
Players Lounge Stoke on Trent 25th Sept 2011
Our Senior Referee for today was Robert Shore.
This event was played in 4 groups of 8 with 2 players from each group going through to the Quarter finals.
Over the days play there was some very interesting matches played and a lot of quality shots played too.
Into the Quarter finals. 2 matches Tony Bowles v Dave Styles and Tony Carr v Tony Kay were 1-4 respectively.
Chris Littler v Brian Robinson,well what can I say, Brian was definitely on a mission here and stormed through 0-4.
John Betts v Bill Rigby went to the deciding frame,with Bill just edging it.3-4.
Brian v Dave went to the wire,with a good finish from Dave to take the final frame 3-4.
Bill v Tony this was a whitewash for Tony 0-4 but in all fairness to Bill did not portray the actual pool played in the frames.
So on to the final between Dave Styles and Tony Kay. By this time a lot of people had gone,but I can honestly say some excellent pool was played. Tony Kay eventual winner 2-5.
Although I must mention that Dave played my shot of the tournament in frame 5. Sweet as a nut to pot his last ball and get on the black to win that particular frame.
Congratulations to Tony Kay National Senior Grand Winner2011.
Once again thanks go to everyone involved and Lee/Gareth and all staff at Players Lounge for looking after us.
