Tim runs h5, rushes h6 pioneer to c3, doesn't have a cannon but all 4 balls within 1.5 yards of c3 now

Rush to c2 finishes short, take off falls short, big roll sending Jenny to h1 going back to partner by h4

Tim h4 an penult,
09 Jan 2014 11:53AM (Tournament); 73 Readers
Plays a max power roll from h3 trying to send two balls off the WB near c2.. front ball finishes in the yardline with back ball 3yards short to give you an idea of how much the courts have slowed down since yesterday afternoon

Sorry for the delay, it's Paddy here now commentating.
Tim has just this moment failed H6 with blue, off partner. Jenny's H1 ball is at 1b as a pioneer, with red waiting nicely at H1.
09 Jan 2014 12:44PM (Tournament); 70 Readers
Jenny has made H1 and is now on a 4-ball break.
09 Jan 2014 12:48PM (Tournament); 66 Readers
Unlucky at H2 by running it hard, planning to hit reception ball - but somehow failed to make contact on the way through.
09 Jan 2014 12:54PM (Tournament); 66 Readers
Now on H5
09 Jan 2014 12:56PM (Tournament); 66 Readers
Got slightly long, angled position at H5, and elected to run it hard (due to 3 reception balls - pilot, pivot, pioneer). . Yellow ran the hoop, but only by an inch, so the ref is on to watch the hampered stroke. Looks fairly straight from this angle...
Nails it. Normal service resumed.

It's been raining here on and off for the last hour or so. Not heavy, just annoying. I think it's taking the bite out of the courts slightly, possibly with hills becoming less pronounced.
09 Jan 2014 1:01PM (Tournament); 61 Readers
Curse of the commentator strikes again. Jenny has stuck in 1b. Looked like she got some unwanted hill on the approach too, and the hoop wasn't the easiest. Ref is testing the hoop now - it's fine.
Just to recap. Jenny now on 1b with Y and 4b with R. Tim on H6 with B and penult with K.
09 Jan 2014 1:03PM (Tournament); 60 Readers
Tim has made H6 with a deep ball, but no pioneer at 1b. That is located 2yd NW of H6. The fourth ball is a pioneer at 2b, so one good shot required to get a rush to 1b - he's rushed it about 1yd NW of 1b and approached to 1ft angled position. Run it, and this should now be a ball to the peg.
09 Jan 2014 1:06PM (Tournament); 62 Readers
Tim doesn't have a 4-back pioneer
09 Jan 2014 1:11PM (Tournament); 62 Readers
Ended up approaching 4b from 2yds SW but got it in front enough to run through to the boundary.
09 Jan 2014 1:13PM (Tournament); 66 Readers
No wait, he's approaching penult from 2yd to the side, leaving a 2foot angled hoop, which he runs and has a 5yd return.
09 Jan 2014 1:14PM (Tournament); 63 Readers
I'm rather pleased I have finished for the day...bucketing down now.
09 Jan 2014 1:15PM (Tournament); 62 Readers
After rover, he has rushed oppo ball to the peg into a perfect cross-peg situation, so that is the leave he is having.
09 Jan 2014 1:17PM (Tournament); 62 Readers
Jenny shooting with red (4b ball) from where it lies. Looks from here like it might be some kind of target - red missed, possibly through the middle, although it is hard to tell from here.
Tim has two hoops to make with black to force a decider.
09 Jan 2014 1:20PM (Tournament); 61 Readers
Average rush to penult, leaving a backward takeoff, which he nails, and runs the hoop to partner near the peg.
09 Jan 2014 1:21PM (Tournament); 61 Readers
And so there is... Tim pegs out to a smattering of applause.
09 Jan 2014 1:22PM (Tournament); 61 Readers
Players taking a break. Perhaps waiting for weather to die down a bit. I'll be back with commentary when there is something to commentate.

Jenny shoots from C3 down the line, and misses rather narrowly into C4.
09 Jan 2014 1:55PM (Tournament); 58 Readers
Tim has rushed yellow to 2 yards directly south of black in C2, and has played a thick-ish take off - only succeeds in getting a rush to C3.

Rain now bucketing down, the worst it's been all day. Chris advising there is a spray coming off the lawns when shots are played.

Stand-in manager is forcing players back onto the virtually unplayable lawns. Hope there are no injuries.
09 Jan 2014 2:05PM (Tournament); 60 Readers
Jenny in C2 and C3, Tim laid up at H1.

Tim has made H1 and hit a hampered shot afterwards.
