The UK is a key tournament in the professional snooker calendar where players get to play a few more frames than is the norm these days and it also carries decent prize money. Sam was in a reasonably confident mood going into the tournament and in the first round he played well, posting back-to-back centuries to win 6-2 against Sean O'Sullivan. In the next round he faced Mitchell Mann and it was to be a different story.....Mitchell handled the indifferent conditions better and played solid snooker, finishing the match strongly to win 6-2. Sam was left disappointed but philosophical, down but not out!
