The WSS ROKiT Sheffield Masters 2019- Joe Johnson is the Master!

The tournament was played yesterday over two sessions.

In the afternoon we had three quarter final matches.

Before the session there was a meet and greet for the VIPs, and the opportunity to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Legend’s presence at the crucible with a cake!

Stephen Hendry beat the defending Champion, Cliff Thorburn by 2-0. It wasn’t perfect snooker, but played in great spirit and very entertaining.

Barry Pinches beat Ken Doherty by 2-0, in a fast paced high quality encounter.

Joe Johnson beat Jimmy White by 2-1 (black ball shoot-out). Both were playing well and it went to the wire!

John Parrot unfortunately had to withdraw, due to illness. Aaron Canavan, the Seniors World Champion got a bye!

In the evening session we had the semi finals and the Final.

Again it started with a meet and greet.

SF1: Barry Pinches beat Stephen Hendry by 2-0

SF2: Joe Johnson beat Aaron Canavan by 2-1

The Final: Joe Johnson beat Barry Pinches by 2-1

All three matches were quality and hard-fought. The Crucible fans responded with enthusiasm, but always respectful.

Stephen Hendry’s endorsed game, “This is Pool/Snooker” was available to play at the Crucible.

The event charity of choice, Eden Dora Trust was present in the Crucible lobby and at the “Meet and Greet”. It’s a great cause, please support them if you can.
