Snooker: Mark Williams Wins Premier League




Mark Williams, currently in the number 1 position, claimed the title to the second snooker Premier League of the season. He defeated Shaun Murphy, who ranks sixth, with a 3-1 win in Guildford. This is not the first time that Williams owned the Premier League. This, in fact, is his second world title.

He played against Jimmy White in the semi finals with a final score of 3-0. The semi final against White, who was clearly the crowd favorite was a cruise for Mark. This was evident as the scored read 3-0 and the 49 year old was sent back.  White has several of his close friends in the audience but visibly that did not inspire the player much. He agreed at the end of the game that he didn’t play his best. He said that he did have a few chances in the second frame however he was not able to grab them quickly enough either.

“I had a disappointing night tonight,” White said. “Mark won the first frame in one visit, but in the second I had two or three chances. I didn’t settle, I lost position and missed two or three easy pots. It gets a bit frustrating.”

The Englishman lefthander played beautifully and with complete ease as he took over the game in the finals. He now stands at the top of table, at par with Matthew Stevens, the winner of week one of the tournaments.

Shaun had to work a little harder at his game. But even winning a frame only nudged him a tat more confident. Mark was clearly dominating the game.

Later during the evening, Williams said that even though it was a fairly easy win for him, he tried to tip the balance to Shaun’s side at moments in the game. He says he did this because it is easy to win over your opponent but the close calls are the ones that will actually hurt them later on. He also said that Shaun should have been able to win some of those close nicks that he was almost, as to say, handed over by Mark. Call it arrogance or approach that is the way Mark Williams likes to play!

Looks like Williams tried to give both his semi finals and finals opponents a bit of a kick to entice them into the game however both failed to do so. Regardless of all ploys, a winner is a winner because he deserves to win. The rest does not really matter does it?
