Unlucky goes out to Joe Swail who was on a maximum attempt when a kick left him low on his next red.
He potted the red quite easily and then left himself what would have been a thin cut into the corner on the next black - he decided to take the pink after long deliberation and attempted what would have been a Crucible first - 146 break. It was not to be as he missed an easy black off its spot off the next red.
There would have been £157,000 for a 147, I would have taken that black on!!!
