Nick Phillips was the king of the dishes once again this month, despite a handicap of 10 frames.
His tournament started with Aiden Britton, who put up quite a fight before facing a 66-46 defeat. In the semi’s Scott Sutton failed to launch, knocking up a paltry 16 before exiting the competition.
In the final, Nick and Stuart Byford (also on a -10 handicap) went head-to-head. The 29 frames that Byford accumulated, however, weren’t enough to make the winner’s podium. Although getting the highest break prize could well have softened the blow a little.
