O'Brien qualifies with record-breaking win


"But in that situation you are playing for everything, your family, what you stand for, and in a decider for a Crucible place it takes the time it takes". Then "Like" the page to get notifications about the live broadcast, as well as all the latest news and information about snooker.

O'Brien, 45, beat England's Dave Gilbert 10-9 at Sheffield's Ponds Forge sports centre, with the final frame lasting an extraordinary two hours, three minutes and 41 seconds.

O'Brien responded to the criticism by saying: "In future would I like to play like that again?"

"I was really disappointed with the way I handled it", he said.

The deciding frame of that match was a record breaking one. It had all the drama of the epic black ball final of 1985 between Steve Davis and Denis Taylor, without the 18.5 million viewers.

"It is a dream to be playing at the Crucible for the first time". O'Brien's state of mind had noticeably changed long before he made the trip to the Steel City, however.

O'Brien said: "Obviously in an ideal world you win a bit quicker than that".


"I was running out of hotels to stay in because every Sheffield hotel I've been staying in I've been going back to my room haunted, each hotel has a bad memory". He will stumble on the previous year's victor Ding Junhui.

Evans, the number one woman player in the world, was two wins away from a place at The Crucible after defeating Robin Hull 10-8. It's like golf or tennis, it's all about the Masters or Wimbledon. "Some days that's the way a frame goes, and if you've got lemons, make lemonade".

And world number 51 Grace said: "Being a big guy, I might be banging into the furniture".

Evans will not be eligible for entry into next year's tournament unless she receives a wild card entry as Hong Kong's Ng On Yee won the World Women's Championship in Singapore last month to earn a first qualifying round berth for 2018.

The 33-year-old from Leicester also won the China Open at the start of April, and looks in good shape to become the first player to follow up that title with Crucible glory.

"I'm hoping the running will stand to me".
