DODGY maths helped a Hampshire student clinch a bizarre final frame in the fifth leg of the Cuestars South of England Under-21 Gold Tour.
Hedge End potter Daniel Woods, who hadn’t played for four months prior to the tournament at Chandler’s Ford Snooker Club, defeated Romford’s Stuart Scott 3-1.
Woods led by seven after waht he thought was a match-winning break.
Convinced the gap was more than that, the University of Portsmouth student nonchalantly stroked a tricky black into the middle pocket.
A relieved Woods said: “Thinking I’d won, I just hit the black down as if it didn’t really matter.
“I probably would’ve missed it if I actually thought it meant anything. So it was quite lucky.”
A miss would have given his opponent the chance of forcing a re-spotted black.
