Snooker: Krajnyak racks up stunning century
THE highest break of the season went flying in this week as Karl Krajnyak hit a stunning 115 clearance as Clee Cons A romped to an 8-0 slam in the Roy Ling Mutual Grimsby Snooker Singles League Premier Section.
Playing against Andy Hill of Cambridge H, Krajnyak, pictured below had to work hard to keep the break going as the last five reds were in difficult positions.
Another big break was racked up by Nigel Otter, who smashed his personal best by knocking in a 97 for Ray Edmonds J in Section A.
Otter's previous best was a 60 in the league. He had once topped 70 in practice.
