Josh Wenzel took the Huddersfield Snooker Handicap title to add to the Junior crown – and was promptly named Most Promising Young Player of the Year.
In the Handicap, he was playing his father, Dave, for the title at PPG Canalside and came through 3-2.
Dave received a handicap of 26 for the showpiece, while his son received two and, in the first frame, Josh was unable to make many inroads into the handicap difference.
He did have a few fairly easy chances but, after potting reds, he failed to take colours with them.
When the yellow was reached the score stood at 48-34 to Dave and, with Josh being unable to take any of the colours, he conceded at the pink, losing 62-34.
In the second frame, however, Josh started to get his game together and quickly overhauled the handicap difference to lead 34-31.
Dave was not to be outdone, however, and regained the lead by potting a few balls himself and, by the time the colours were reached he held the advantage at 56-39.
Unfortunately, though, he quickly relinquished the 17 points difference by first fouling the pink, then fouling the black and finally conceding another four points to leave the game tied on 56 apiece!
The frame went to 69-67 to Josh when it was a ‘black ball’ game.
Dave was faced with a simple pot into the centre pocket to go two frames clear but somehow missed.
Josh didn’t need any further encouragement and punished this miss by potting the black and clinching the frame 67-76.
In the third frame no significant inroads were made into the handicap difference until only five reds remained.
Eventually the colours were reached with Josh only a couple of points adrift, with the score at 35-33, and shortly afterwards it was 44 apiece.
Dave then recorded another five points before Josh suddenly found some potting form by taking blue, pink and black with three excellent shots to win 62-49.
Josh gradually whittled away the handicap difference in frame four before Dave registered a run of 15 to lead 53-25.
With only one red remaining, Dave was still leading 66-25 and with Josh unable to find a reply, he conceded the frame 72-47 and it was all down to the decider.
Both players decided they were going to attack from the outset but Josh managed to get the better of these exchanges to overhaul the deficit and lead 41-35.
Dave did have a chance to get in but, after potting a red, he missed a simple green when in a good position.
Once again Josh punished his mistake and increased his lead further to 56-36. Dave had further chances but by not taking them he found himself 26 points adrift with only the colours left and the score reading 68-42.
Dave was now faced with an uphill task and was not able to make his mark, so his son eventually claimed the frame and the title with an 88-51 margin.
