Tough World Snooker Q School for Deuel
filed on Wednesday, May 20, 2015. 6:24am PT/USA
Corey Deuel has exited the 2015 World Snooker Q School, as the former United States National Snooker Champion lost his first match in Event 2 at the Meadowside Leisure Centre in Burton-upon-Trent, England.
The American was up against the former professional player Jason Weston in this race to four frames match, and although the Englishman won the first frame with a break of 93, it was Deuel who won the second frame 71-10 assisted by a break of 40, and then went into a 2-1 lead by securing the third frame 71-36.
The signs looked good for Deuel at this point but he did let slip a 3-1 advantage to lose 4-3 in Event 1, and that pattern started to repeat itself in this match.
Weston squared the match at 2-2 by comprehensively taking frame four 99-2, and then he won the fifth frame on the final pink 65-50.
Deuel's fate was then sealed as he then proceeded to narrowly lose the following frame on the final colored balls 61-79 to record a 4-2 defeat.
One-hundred and sixty-six players entered Event 2 to win one of the four available two-year professional World Snooker Tour cards and Deuel knows all too well what an incredibly tough school it is. Although he considers snooker to be the best of all the billiard sports, he is still primarily known as one of the world's leading professional pool players and he deserves so much credit and admiration from his peers for his endeavors and achievements in snooker.
