Congratulations to Palestine who go through to face North America in the semi-final of the World Cup.

Cornwall will play Belgium in the semi-final of the National Cup.

Two very good matches in prospect there :-)

Congratulations to Sheffield, who join North America and Palestine in the World Cup Semi-finals.

Commiserations to Coventry, who put together some good breaks. They have the consolation of joining Cornwall and Belgium in the National Cup Semi-finals.

Coventry and Sheffield will discover their next opponents when South-East England complete their opening match.

A reminder to Badsnookerplayer, the deadline to complete your frames is today. If you haven't had chance to get 5 frames in by the end of the day, you need to submit your 5 highest breaks from the frames you have played. If you haven't played any frames, you will lose by default.

Apologies to all for not posting on this in a while. I PM'ed Badsnookerplayer but haven't heard back. I guess he has been busy and hasn't been able to visit the island in a while.

So that leaves us with the following Semi-final line-ups:

World Cup
Palestine (1) v North America (4)
Sheffield (3) v Southwest China (7)

National Cup
Belgium (5) v Cornwall (8)
South-East England (2) v Coventry (6)

Scores are already in from North America

Scores are in from North America and Coventry.
I'm playing tomorrow, hopefully will get all 5 frames in. Quietly confident of getting 2-3 good breaks and putting up a contest with Sheffield :-)

In the little table time I have put in since summer, I feel like I have not played well. I always do better against my preferred opponent....my son....and he is of course home for the holidays now.

I have not seen any activity on the World Cup on the forums. Have I missed something? Clubs shut down so we are postponed at the moment? I don't know but anyway, with the boy home for a few weeks, I need to get my frames in now. I am pretty sure I am in a match with Pink Ball, but I don't know if we are supposed to wait until the other Semi-Final match is set? So if I have to wait, no problem, I will post new scores when time comes, but if I can post now then my scores for this match, 5 best breaks over 5 frames, are as follows:

25
22
20
17
16

If you can't take these scores now, just let me know and I am happy to re-record when time is right.

Thanks guys!

Congratulations to Palestine who are through to the World Cup Final (possibly for the first time in the nation's history, in any sport (happy to be corrected))

I played 4 frames today and have another game set up for Friday to round off my frames. Very happy with my game today :-D

Hi Chengdu, I won't be able to get my 5 frames this week, too busy.
I hope maybe next week.
I don't know the deadline, but if necessary I'll forfeit to not let things drag on unnecessarily long.

25 - Very pleased with this, my second 20+ break, matching my high break. It ran red-blue-red-brown-red-black-red-blue. At the end of the break, there were two reds remaining, both in tricky positions. I got as good a position on the red as I could (my cue ball control was very good throughout the break), but it was a tough one and one I don't normally get, so I didn't mind that I missed it.
16 - Simple red-black-red black at the start of the frame with balls around the black spot. I didn't get position on a third red.
12 - A good four-ball break for me with some medium-difficulty pots. I potted the third red, but the white went into the middle pocket heading back down to the black end of the table. I knew where the white was heading when I lined it up, but thought I could get enough bottom on it to avoid the in-off. It wasn't to be though.

You have my sympathy, RS. Had a nasty shoulder injury myself a few years ago. Couldn’t play for 18 months. Hope yours is less debilitating!

Wow,feeling devastated missing a few weeks, don't even want to think about 18 months. Injured myself lifting a crate from over head high, still think I'm 30 in my head, felt a twang and instant pins and needles.

You’ve probably jarred a nerve. Take ibuprofen and rest!

I was lifting weights, shoulder dislocated in a big way, and I broke my glenoid (the socket). Surgery worked, but recovery was long. It was my bridge arm, which I couldn’t even lift fully above my head for about 6 months.

Really sorry to hear about the shoulder Runners. Get better soon! Maybe it will give you some time to buy a new cue :chuckle:

Well, it did put me in a bit of a quandary as to what to do with the competition, but thankfully Pink has sorted that by confirming he'll wait. Cheers Pink!

In the National Cup, as Bad has gone awol recently I don't suspect he'll get his frame scores in for th match with Judders. We'll give him until Rekoons has played.
Once Rekoons' scores are in, we'll know who's in the final.
Judders and Yanfan have already submitted scores.

Not going to happen. How's the shoulder?

I sent: 29, 25, 19, 17 and 16.

It should have been: 29, 25, 19, 17 and 15.

Not much difference, I know, but I like to have it right.

Cheers,

Very happy with the 25 (4 reds & 3 blacks) and 26 (final 3 reds with black + yellow. Missed a relatively easy green and Brown was also doable :( ) in consecutive frames.

Thanks for the organisation!


Cornwall 3-2 Belgium
