TOP LINES IN COULSDON
Oliver Lines was the last player standing at the latest Frames Professional One-Day Event on Wednesday evening.
Nine top-tier players each staked £200 to enter the tournament at the famous Frames Sports Bar in Coulsdon - Stuart Bingham, Mark King, Mark Davis, Jimmy Robertson, Gerard Greene, Allan Taylor, Sanderson Lam, Sean O'Sullivan and Lines.
The players were split into Round Robin Groups of 4 (best of 7s) and 5 (best of 5s), with the top 2 from each qualifying for the Knock-Outs.
Both Lines and Gerard Greene won all of their group matches and qualified top. They were joined in the Semi-Finals by Runners-Up Robertson and Davis.
In those Last 4 fixtures Lines defeated Davis 4-0 and Greene eliminated Robertson 4-2. In a reduced final Lines ousted Greene 3-2 to take the £950 first prize.
Greene, who registered the day's highest break with a 143, took home £450, whilst Robertson and Davis got back their stakes.
All nine players will be off to the Colosseum in Watford for the Snooker Shoot-Out over the coming days.
