Euro qualifiers 3 and 4
Jamie was disappointed to not qualify for either Euro tour event on Friday night, that said, a couple of decent performances going forward. Wins over Pete Hudson and Darren Johnson set up a final round match against the impressive Cameron Menzies and his super finishing and 9 darter put Jabba to the sword pretty efficiently, no complaints. In the second qualifier, Paul Nicholson hit 3 ton plus finishes in the the opening round against Jabba to put him out 3-6, again, no complaints.
Saturday 10 March 2018.
Tough opening round draw against Jeffrey De Zwaan and a spirited fight back from 2-5 down to win 6-5 was a nice birthday present! However, another emerging Dutchman – Jermaine Wattimena put Jamie out in round two 4-6.
After some encouraging signs over the previous two days, Jabba was looking forward to the day with usual preparations put in place. Early wins against Jose Justicia (6-3), Ryan Miekle (6-4) and Pete Hudson (6-3) completed winning the group and a last 16 match against Luke Woodhouse. From 2-4 down to 5-4 up turned the match but a nervy end by both saw Jabba cross the line 6-5. A quarter final match against Adrian Lewis was next and power scoring from jackpot put him in command 4-0 and it was one game too many for Jabba as Adie won 6-2. All in all a much better weekend and looking forward to the upcoming events as Jabba will be looking to build on these performances.
