Favourites trip up in Manchester and Bristol
Seventy-four more players tried for the cheap route into the 2014 UK Open by entering the most recent qualifiers at Grosvenor Casinos in Didsbury, Manchester (March 15th) and Bristol (April 6th).
Whereas Brighton and London followed the form book, the favourites in the finals of these recent events didn’t quite make it over the finishing line. In Manchester, Brian Lever managed to pull back to DMP after going down 0-6 to Bob Slater, only to have his hopes dashed in the final game. Well done Bob!
