9-6 darren, safety battle going on over the 1 ball.

Darren makes a great shot on the 1, gets shape on the 2.

PoolBum

Appleton just scratched cross side on the 5.

PoolBum

Corey gets out, 9-7 Darren. If Corey wins, that last rack will probably be the difference. He really needs to get some opportunities from the break though.

Is anybody out there following this?

No problem. Corey makes two balls on the break, but has a very difficult shot on the 2, jacked up over the 8.

Darren plays safe, Corey kicks and hits the 2, leaves a tough shot.

Corey runs out from the 2, after Incardona dogs the call from the 2 to the 4.

9-8 Darren.

Easy table for Corey, he runs to the 8 and plays bad shape on the 9, but makes a thin cut.

Corey makes nothing on the break. Darren plays safe on the 1, banking the 1 up table and trying to leave the cue behind the 8, but leaves a window for Corey.

Corey makes a nice shot on the 1, nearly misses the 2 and inadvertently runs into the 6, but has a shot.

Corey has a long shot on the 5, makes it and gets shape, but then runs way top long off the 7. Corey plays safe, leaving the 8 up table for a bank.
