In the second frame, Richards increased the division’s highest break to 31, but still came close to losing the frame, thanks to Huxley’s profligacy in missing easy blacks twice, the second time leaving it over a pocket! Pat Young and Brian Hawes then swapped frames, with Young winning frame three 52-42, and Hawes frame four 44-27. Gary Washington and Pelham Sparks also traded frames. 80-50 Washington and 54-42 Sparks.
