Grand Final RESULT

2019 Reventon Masters semi summary and GF updates

As can happen in snooker, we had one short semi-final and one very long one.

 

Sourav v Joe (the short battle)
After qualifying by the skin of his teeth to reach the quarters and then winning again to reach the semi Joe found a much tougher opponent in this round.

Sourav was at his best putting on a masterclass for those that watched it heading out to a rapid 3-0 lead with a 70 break in the second.

Joe was unlucky not to win the fourth and instead of the scoreboard reading 1-3, Sourav took his chance and converted a three frame lead into a 4 nil start.

Joe managed to salvage some pride by taking the 5th but the penultimate round proved to be the end of the road for Joe when Sourav completed the match with a 5-1 score line.

 

Johl v Steve (the longer battle)
In the other semi final we had Johl Younger and Steve Mifsud in a lengthy display of talent.

With one place in the final taken by Sourav in the other side of the draw, the battle was on to find his opponent.

Steve got off to a better start taking the first frame but Johl had his chance and took both the second and the third frames.

After four it was level again due to Steve taking this one convincingly.

The next two frames were both close but were both claimed by the same player as Johl stretched out to a 4-2 lead.

After 5 hours and 20 minutes, we had our winner after Johl took the seventh frame and a 5-2 victory.

 

Grand Final
With just one match to go, our Reventon Masters Final is to involve the international wonder that is Sourav Kothari against the last Australian standing in Johl Younger.

These two played each other earlier in the tournament as they both qualified from the same group.

I am not sure how much of a psychological edge it will create due to the shorter format but in that match Johl won 3-2 so this one is just as likely to go the distance.
