Minehead Player Championship Finals; Semi-final Dream for The Force!
Justin Pipe travelled the few miles from his home near Taunton to take part in the Cash Converters Player Championship Finals in Butlins Minehead, and what a journey it was!
‘The Force’ made the semi-final of the £250,000 televised tournament, with a top prize of £60,000 at stake. Those performances in front of record ITV4 Tv audiences secured the no. 9 in the world spot with the £15,000 won.
We have reports that the action has received around 500,000 viewers in some sessions shown on ITV4, and someone who is part of the product team told us that they are crossing their fingers for a 1 MILLION viewer mark during the final session. That’s the same as the world championships, and would be a great feat if true.
The event was fantastically supported by fans, with a reported 4,000+ fans packing out the Minehead venue, and it’s made for some great TV. Justin’s family were also there cheering him on at every session, and that and the home support made it extra special.
Round 1: Justin Pipe 6-3 Colin Osborne
Round 2: Justin Pipe 10-8 Brendan Dolan
Quarter Finals: Justin Pipe 10-7 Mervyn King
Semi Finals: Kim Huybrechts 11-6 Justin Pipe
In his final game, Justin gave Kim too much of a start when he couldn’t find his doubles. Justin battled well, but the talented young Belgium player was too good on his doubles, and knocked JP out. Justin was happy with his tournament, and the semi-final is his best result yet on TV.
CAN YOU FEEL THE FORCE?
