Sir Hendry Fan of Scotlandshire. Thank you for your enquiry.
1. Not bad. Had a couple of weeks off for a holiday, played last couple of weeks though, and played OK
3. No, have been on the losing end of a couple!!
4. No. Twenty's plenty....
5. He beat me last week 3 nil, but they were close and I played well so I didn't mind. The previous week I beat him 2-1 and in the two I won it was drubby McDrubstone so YAY!
How about you? how's your game?
"Sir Hendry Fan of Scotlandshire".
I was tryin to think of a Sir type name for you,but i then though,i,ll stick to callin you Dan-
as you love that.
Sounds like you,ve been doin ok.
So you have no BIG breaks,but you,ve had "Twenty's plenty",that sounds brilliant!,i,d be absolutely delighted if i could make plenty o twentys.
I,m rubbish at makin breaks,often when i see the 20 mark,i blow it,i knock in a lot of 15,s,16,s,17,s,my highest break this year so far is a measly 22,but i have to add,that i,ve not played many frames so far this year,i,ve probably only played bout 25 frames,but only being able to make one 20+er in 25 frames is pathetic really.
The last time i played,was bout 5,6 weeks ago,i lost 4-1 to 1 opponent,then i lost 2-0 to another.
The guy i lost 2-0 to annoys me tbh,i,ve actually only played him bout 5,6 times and most matches i,ve played against him followed the same,a similar sort of pattern.
Eg,often when i play a very good safety,he goes and pots one,in fact,some of the pots he makes are unreal,he does,nt half pull out some difficult pots,when it happens,i sit in my chair and think,not again,not another one ffs!.
I also have more bad luck when i play against him,than when i play others,i,d pot a crackin one,what happens,the buckin cue goes in and he often gets lucky snookers and often gets away with misses.
I,m really determined to beat the bugger,i,ve only managed to beat him once so far,it was the very first match we played,it was last year,i beat him 3-2.
In fact,the last match we played,where he won 2-0,in the first frame i knocked in my highest break of this year so far,the 22,at one point i was about 30 ahead,but then he started his usual pottin balls off the lampshades,down to the colours,he got a lucky snooker,i missed,gave him a easy yellow,he then potted up to the blue and that was that.
The 2nd frame,he knocked in an incredible 31 break,once again,he potted some very difficult pots to keep the break goin,shortly after,i potted one,only to see the buckin cue ball unlucky go in,after that he potted a few and i was then about 48 behind,too much for me to comeback.
When we then shook hands,he said,that that 31 break he rattled in was one of the best breaks he,s ever made,i thought,Aye,typical you had to do it against me.
