A first appearance in the LITEtask pro-am series for Jamie Cope in Event 5 saw his campaign kick off in great style, winning through the strong 80-player field and leaping into 12th place on the series ranking list.
Another hugely impressive performance from Simon Blackwell helped him to reach his second final of the series, his consistency and grit further rewarded with 2nd place on the overall list.
There was also a solid performance from our friend Bex Kenna, who reached the last 16 of the event, only to lose out at the hands of series leader Peter Lines. Bex is quickly working her way up through the ranks on the World Women’s Tour, after a breakthrough first season which included a 3-2 comeback victory over Reanne Evans at Dunstable Snooker Club in the Connie Gough Trophy 2017 semi-final.
There’s still everything to play for in the final event of the series as the top 32 could shake up significantly and, as always, with the generous LITEtask sponsorship, the prize pot is significant.
Event 6 is on the 12th November at the Northern Snooker Centre.
