24Hr Sessions: Wetlands Peg 10 (Mon 23/04) and Peg 8 (Mon 30/04)

Published at 03:00pm on 14th May 2018.

What on earth have carp fishing and world championship snooker got In common? Well quite a bit it seems. Like many others I greatly enjoyed watching the recent 2018 world snooker final when Mark Williams finally triumphed over John Higgins in a monumental battle that had viewers on the edge of their seats, especially through the last two stages. One aspect that stood out to me was the advantageous impact of breaks between sessions. It was very obvious that both players benefitted from a chance t...
