There weren’t any real surprises yesterday in Barnsley, at least at the tables. Here are the results on snooker.org. Elliott Slessor played extremely well to come bacj from 4-2 down to beat Ryan Day 5-4. Li Hang celebrated his 29th birthday with a good win over Mark King.
The story of the day was Neil Robertson failing to show up for his match against Ian Burns. He went to the wrong place… trusting his satnav blindly in went to “another” Barnsley. Asked how that was possible, he said that usually a friend would drive him, but he’s entered Challenge Tour 3 … so he let him down.
Neil has some history of missing – or near missing – matches for, well … unexpected reasons.
