Semi Finals Results - NRSC2010 Leg 1

Although both semi finals concluded with the same scoreline of 4-3, it was a two totally different scenario when both matches started at 5pm. Playing over the Best of 7 frames, the first Semi Final was a neck to neck affair as Lim Zhi Wei aka Small Kid played Ng Ann Seng.

Missing from the snooker scene for quite a while, Lim's comeback was much discussed after he reached the Quarter Finals of the National Snooker Championship. This time he made it through to the Semi Final, beating current National Champion Moh Keen Hoo and Jimmy Teo, hoping to make a comeback and win a tournament. First 6 frames were shared equally with both Lim and Ng winning 3 frames each to level at 3-3, needing the 7th and final frame to determine the winner. Ng had an early advantage leading in the final frame, but missed halfway giving Lim a chance needing to clear all the balls on the table to secure a spot in the Final. However, a fatal mistake on the Brown ball denied Lim and Ng cleared to the Pink ball, winning 4-3 advancing into the Final.

On the other Semi Final after the match commenced, Rory Thor appeared as the obvious winner as he lead 3-0, needing only 1 frame to advance to the Final. But Lai Chee Wei was not going to give up easily, as he refocused to win frame by frame, leveling the match at 3-3. Lai further extended the lead in the final frame as he made a 30 break followed by scoring another 13 points after breaking off. Rory Thor, appearing shaken, could not find his rhythm and found himself requiring snookers with 3 balls remaining on the table. After a pull and tug war, Lai potted the final red, winning the match and booked himself a spot in the Final.

Final commences at 10pm with Lai Chee Wei playing against Ng Ann Seng over Best of 7 frames.
