Hitting the blue on the break shot

Postby Sickpotter

I was watching the WO ROS/Hendry match and saw Hendry hit the blue on his break off to gift ROS the final frame. <doh>

To my recollection that's the first/only time I've ever seen Hendry do that in a professional event.

Does anyone know if there's a stat to be had for that? IMO that's something a professional should NEVER do and I was absolutely floored to see Hendry commit so basic an error. The man really is only a miniscule fraction of the player he was :sad:

Can anyone recall other times pros have committed such an amateur mistake? I'm kinda curious as to how often it happens given I've NEVER seen it happen before :huh:

Not sure but worse than that, Ebdon hit the jaws of the corner pocket directly off the reds and with the white jawing back out almost sent a red into the yellow pocket, never seen anything like it before <laugh>
