End 5 – It’s all happening here… lots of great shots round a couple of centre guards, Pete lying well but PJ is unlucky with a hit and roll and JJ has the initiative. But Pete makes a stupendous hit and roll to lie behind cover… 3 stones to come… over to you JJ. He has the 4 foot in his pocket but its sticking out there – what can Pete do? He’s jammed it on his own stone so JJ has draw for 2 or hit Pete’s second shot for 2. He calls the latter as it’s an easier shot. But he can only half it out, 1 to JJ

End 6 – David Hume has the luck of the Irish. A wide take out catches a guard and ends up as a perfect hit and roll! Pete going gamble crazy – 4 against at the half way point. But Pete is cleaning up quicker than a Dyson….now he has a chance to bury a draw behind cover. Not quite, but good enough as JJ catches the guard trying to remove Pete’s stone. Draw the house for 2 – thanks very much – the casino has paid out.

End 7 – Half way through and nothing to report….yawn. One corner out there covering the edge of the 4. Woken up as Neil plays a peach round it, Pete can’t reply but Neil’s second runs too far back -still lying 1, all behind the tee. Enter PJ!! A little wide but the leprechaun has jumped ship. After a bit of pinball PJ ends up with a perfect freeze on JJ’s stone. Bill rescues the situation with a perfect draw to the front of the tee. Pete can’t reply and worse….he guards the way in. JJ – is that a game winning double on Pete’s back stones? Now lying 2 on the four foot. Huge shot for Pete coming up. Cold freeze needed round a guard or its a 4 to the ex-world champs……draw catches and JJ plays easy double for 4.
