Favourite Wallace Scoops Day 1 Week 8 of 900…
WORLD SENIORS TOUR STAR Patrick Wallace scooped Day 1, Week 8, the final week of TV qualifying for the Grand Finals of the fast and furious snooker event the 900 on Monday.
The 54-year-old Northern Irishman came through a tough field of entrants to go safely into Wednesday’s draw, as he defeated the Cuestars Senior Wayne Townsend in the final.
The Marquee player of Monday night was Jayson Shaw, 33, nicknamed Eagle-Eye, who has a string of pool titles to his name and recently won the Hanoi Open.
He told Rachel Casey and the team before the event that he was looking forward to having a go in the 900 but that his main passion was 9 ball. He said he had in the past picked balls out for the likes of top stars Stephen Maguire, John Higgins, and Anthony McGill.
Four new faces will join the 900 on Tuesday along with the ones who didn’t make it on Monday and they go again from 10PM on SKY 427 or SPORTYSTUFF YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
He said he felt good with his pool cue at the start of the night! 💪
Jayson Shaw wasn’t wrong, as he becomes our final semi-finalist tonight beating Fergal Quinn

Could Hunter cause a stir in the 900 like Nic Barrow did in week 7?
