Malta Open 2007

I started in the Malta Open with a great win against Mark Williams.
It was a late finish in the match but I enjoyed every minute of it.
I was disapponted to eventually lose to Ryan Day, 5-4.
It was a great match and Ryan made a good 60 break to win the match.
I felt like that match presented a great chance to progress in the tournament and maybe go on and win it.
Ryan was in good form also that week and went all the way to play in his first final.

My next match is on Thursday March 1st. when I will play Mark Joyce
in the qualifiers for the World Championships.
This match will be held in Prestatyn and will be the best of 19 frames.
If I win that match I will play Stuart Bingham for a place in the Crucible in April.
That match will be played on March 14th. at the Academy in Sheffield.

I had to miss out on the Crucible last year and I aim to get back playing there this year.
It will not be easy but I will be giving it everything to qualify
as there is nowhere better for a professional player to perform than at the Crucible.
