2014 Bradford Open

29 Mar 2014to30 Mar 2014

 

Congratulations to David Causier who defeated Martin Goodwill 836 – 331 in the final of the Bradford Open today, making the highest break of 731 in the process.

“As I was entering Dave’s breaks for the Last 16 (63, 124,123, 135, 121, 215, 94, 85) he was looking over my shoulder. I complained to him about my data entry task, lots of piddly breaks separated by commas. I asked if he couldn’t be a bit more considerate and just score one big one. What did he do in the Final ?”
Jim

The Plate competition was won by David Nichols, who put in an ominous performance on his return to competitive play after an absence of 7 years. He compiled the highest break of the event (156) in his 475 – 75 defeat of Peter Johnson in the one hour final.  His other breaks were 88 unf, 84, 72 unf, and 57.
