World Seniors Irish Masters 2019 in Pictures – SF and Final – 6 January 2019

The afternoon session saw the two semi-finals being played.

In the first semi-final, Rodney Goggins beat Joe Johnson quite comfortably by 3-0

The second semi-final was a very close affair. Jimmy White eventually beat Patrick Wallace by 3-2, on a deciding re-spotted black. This was another black ball heartbreak for Patrick …


In the evening, the final was played in front of an absolutely packed Goffs arena. Both players got a tremendous reception. Eventually experience prevailed, as Jimmy White beat Rodney Goggins by 4-1. Jimmy finished the match with a beautiful 96. Rodney was understandably disappointed, but really, he did give an excellent account of himself. For someone who has never been in that situation, playing a final in front of a packed house, in Goffs, can be intimidating.

Of course, on the Finals day also, the fans had the opportunity to meet the players and officials.
