Ireland’s Masters Team of Michael Judge and Anthony Bonnar reached the Final of the 2017 European Snooker Masters Team Championships here in Albania. The Irish pair faced Kristján Helgason and Jón Ingi Ægisson from Iceland for the title.
Each match was the best of seven frames in an exciting format of singles, singles, scotch doubles, singles, singles, and scotch doubles. If the match is tied at 3-3 the captains choose the player for the one frame shoot out to find the winner.
Iceland won frame 1 and Ireland levelled the match at 1-1 after that the Iceland team won a number of close frames to win the title 4-1. Anthony and Michael should be very proud of themselves on reaching the final as the standard was very high this year and with John Farrell and Mark Tuite reaching the men’s final along with Michael Judge reaching the European open final, it was a good week for our RIBSA players. Well done to everyone.
