Graham Bryan fought his way to the finish line, beating Liam Buchan to win this week’s Mr Pools competition.
Graham hit the ground running, facing Stuart Byford in the first round. With a bonus -2 frame start Graham comfortable overcame the mighty Byford with a 4-2 result. Round two was a hard fought match, with Danny Henderson staying until the deciding frame (4-3), and the semis were much the same story, this time against Mark Huffer (4-3).
In the final, Bryan faced Liam Buchan who up until now had enjoyed very little contention. This match proved to be a different story, seeing both players into a deciding frame. True to form and staying with the trend, Graham dug deep to take the top prize (4-3).
Graham received £56 and runner-up Liam receiving £24. In the next event, Graham Bryan starts on -2 frame each round and Liam starts on -1.
