FORMER professional Bradley Jones has ended Sean Harvey’s unbeaten run on the Frames Sports Bar Championship Tour.
The 45-year-old from South Croydon pocketed £150 after an entertaining 3-2 victory over the rankings champion in the final of the seventh leg.
Jones took the opening frame with a run of 66 at the home of the competition sponsor in Coulsdon and doubled his advantage with a 99 that ended with an in-off on the yellow.
Harvey pulled one back with the day’s highest break of 106 and forced a decider on the black in the next.
Into the fifth frame and Surrey cueman Harvey sportingly called a foul on himself while at the table with a good chance to secure the match and Jones eventually won on the pink.
Harvey had won the five previous Championship Tour events that he had entered this season.
Meanwhile, women’s world number seven Emma Parker (Hornchurch) made her Cuestars debut but lost 3-1 in the first round to Premier Tour player Marco Dayao.
Dayao (Battersea Park) later made his highest Cuestars break of 85 in the fifth-frame decider against Labeeb Ahmed (Chessington) in the last-eight.
Dale Prout (Newbury) beat James Cullen (Walton-on-Thames) 2-0 in the Plate final.
The season’s biggest entry of 32 returned 26 breaks of 50 or more.
Greenbaize Snooker Club, Bournemouth, hosts the eighth and final leg on Sunday, March 29.
