Liang Wenbo made a 147 then missed the final black for a 2nd 147 in the same match against Rod Lawlor. The 147’s are flying in lately.


#3284

Jimmy wins!!


#3285

He’s done it! Jimmy wins 10-6 :clap:


#3286

Daunting task for Jimmy in the next round, he faces world #22 Gentleman Joe Perry.


#3287

This is just the start for Jimmy.

This is going to finally be his year.


#3288

Just 7 wins away now from being World Champion.


#3289

Or, to put it another way, 91 frames.


#3290

Jaysus what a miss!


#3291

In the big all Ireland clash, Ken Doherty leads Josh Boileau 6-3 at the end of the session. Fergal O’Brien is 6-3 down in his match.

Doherty wins 10-8 O’Brien loses 10-5.


#3293

Gérard Greene has just upset the world #20 Mark King 10-9 and will play Ken in the next round.


#3294

Jimmy trailing Gentleman Joe Perry 4-5 after this morning’s session. They play to a finish tonight.


#3295

Ken leads Greene 5-4 at the end of their first session.


#3296

Jimmy’s dream appears to be dying for another year. Gentleman Joe has won the opening three frames of the evening session to open an 8-4 lead.


#3297

The dream is over for another year . Jimmy loses 10-5, lets hope he learns from this and comes back stronger in 2019.

Ken Doherty is leading 9-4 and is one frame away from a berth in the final round.


#3298

Ken through to the final round.
Cmon Ken


#3299

He’ll face one of the great Crucible nearly men in the final qualifying round in a repeat of the 2000 Master Final. Matthew Stevens has come from 7-9 down to beat Yuan Sijun 10-9.


#3300

That’s a pity, I thought this was finally going to be Jimmy’s year to claim that elusive first world title.

However, I’m optimistic that next year will be his year.
