CC's commentary on Thursday's play

[<<] [>>] by Chris Clarke
5th July 2001 (World Championship)

A day of upsets left only five seeds in the event. Bamford remained on top form with two triples against Irwin whilst Fulford overcame Suter comfortably.

Mulliner was the first seed out in straight games to Martin Clarke and was soon joined by Toby Garrison who lost to Jeff Dawson. Bob Jackson completed the set losing from game up against Chris Farthing.

Fournier and Louw had a good match in which Fournier came back from a long way behind with two good triples. McBride lost the first but his solid play combined with Trimmer's 2-back failures eventually gave him the match. Robin Brown had a good straight games win against the much-fancied Matthew Burrow. Ed Cunningham went down to Dennis Bulloch in straight games on the tricky lawn 10. Clarke beat Meatheringham, Fleming beat Dyer and Tibble beat Bassett. In the last match to finish, Maugham had a good straight double to win in straight games after Mark McInerney broke down on rover and peg.
