Well we had the first Masters ranking event yesterday with the new set up at The Corner Pocket Dalkeith.
Really great set up now, still one table to come and when it does it will be perfect.
93 players in the draw and only a handful never turned up, so lots of pool to play and some of it was really great.
The two who got through to the final were Steven McTernan and Jeff Mathieson and they decided to just share the final and a lag to see who got the extra ranking point , that Stevie won.
As usual the Masters section pay out ALL entry fees, even if a player does not turn up, this is made by the sponsorship that comes from the club and then when the missing players pay later, this money is held back to pay at the Scottish finals.
You see we believe that the players who are playing in that event, should get the entry fees that would have came in , if all players had turned up and played.
Breakdown 310 winner 150 runners up 75 semis 40 quarters and 20 for last 16.
Our thanks to Davy Duncan for running the whole event , using the apps which gets better all the time.
The Masters section is getting bigger all the time and these guys don't just turn up , play and leave if beaten, it's all about seeing people who you used to play years ago and having a laugh about old times.
Full details of the next event will be out shortly and lastly well done to Steven and Jeff.
