If results are anything to go by then the route to the final for both Ben Flack and Ryan Bodsworth seemed fairly straightforward! Neither player dropped more than 2 frames in any match on their way to the final. That alone is some achievement considering the high standard of opponents that they faced. For Bodsworth, however, this is an especially tough feat as it is the young Huddersfield players first year on the tour. Results such as a 5-1 victory over former World Champion John Roe in the semi-final indicate that Ryan could well be a player to watch for the future!
Ben Flack on the other hand is well versed in making the final stages of tournaments having been a previous World Masters Champion and World Champion with the England Men’s Team. Flack is renowned for his slow and solid style and he again showed his class and consistency as he took the final 6-2 and along with it the title and the £1000 prize money.
