Eleven30 Series Leg 4 – All square!

Ronnie won the 4th leg of the Eleven30 series in Petersborough, beating Judd Trump by an emphatic 6-0, with breaks of 114, 84, 77, 109, 57 and 112. It’s now all squares in the series, with Ronnie leading by 7 centuries to 3, which could prove crucial if they end up at 3-3 next week-end. All to play for though! Great for the fans.
Ronnie played very, very well but Judd wasn’t probably at his sharpest having been stranded on the motoway en route to the venue. Not ideal preparation …
