China Open, Shoot-Out & Welsh Open

A win in the China Open qualifiers against Alan Taylor sees Sam through to the main event later on in March. 

The Shoot-out is a bit of a lottery but never-the-less fun.....not so when you get a heavy kick on a simple red with the balls there for the taking! Jack Lisowski the benefactor saw Sam exit early. 

The Welsh Open has, mostly, been good to Sam in past seasons. First up Thor Chuan Leong and a comfortable 4-2 win. Sam's next opponent was always going to be tougher, John Higgins. After a close first frame Higgins ran in a 137, 115 and a 72 offering Sam just four shots.....vintage Higgins, no complaints! Euro Tour 6, Gydnia Open next at the end of February, opponent unknown.
