Red hot Stu racks up triple Hunter success
FORMER professional cueman Stuart Carrington feels on top of his game after gunning down three opponents to reach the last 16 of the Paul Hunter English Open.
The Grimsby snooker player has racked up three victories to qualify – his latest triumph coming against Cleethorpes potter Jamie Barrett.
The competition is named after three-time Masters champion Hunter, who died from cancer in 2006, and is held in the late snooker player's hometown of Leeds.
Carrington beat James Cahill 4-1, Anthony Parsons 4-1 and Barrett 4-2 at Leeds' Northern Snooker Centre.

He will return to the baize to continue his efforts in the competition on March 3.
And with £700 up for grabs for the winner, Carrington would love to kick-start his progress in 2013 with a title success as he gears up to attempt to re-qualify for the Main Tour later this year.
"There are six professionals in the last 16," said the 22-year-old, who qualified for the 2011/12 professional season but was unable to keep hold on his place.
"There aren't any so-called big names but it is still a good competition to win.
"I was happy with my form in the three matches. I made a couple of breaks in the 80s, some in the 70s and several over 50 – so I'm pleased with my game.
"I feel I've improved a good deal over the last six months. Hopefully I can keep getting better and finish the season by getting back on the Main Tour."
