    I dream of a 147 (but would be happy with a 100)

      Impressive. Quite a big margin of victory
      Is there anyone else in Australia at the moment who can run him close or is he head and shoulders above the rest?

          Isn't Danik Lucas an Australian as well? He's pretty good at top table as well from the videos I've seen of him.

            it always gets me just how many consecutive strokes are required to get these big breaks in billiards

              Must be impressive when you're a billiard player but I find it absolutely boring as hell.....:/

                Maybe learn to play billiards. It does help your snooker. Not an easy game but once you start to get better it really grows on you.

                  Thanks for that Mythman, loved it, great white control. It's hard enough making a thirty break at billiards lol.
                  This is how you play darts ,MVG two nines in the same match!

                    I always enjoy watching his matches. He's an excellent snooker player too.

                      I hear you
                      Its a common trend these days. Snooker players tend not to care too much for billiards. Pity really, it teaches you patience and discipline. Takes quite something for you as the opponent to sit in that chair while your opponent makes a 100+ odd break and then come to the table and made a sizeable contribution of your own.

                        Or not make a sizable contribution of your own.

                          Matt's a great player... as someone else mentioned Danik Lucas is a great player too, not sure how much he plays anymore though or whether he chooses to enter those tournaments.

                            I watched the video again and noticed he is not averse to playing the post mans knock on top table when the opportunity presents itself. Most of the other top English billiards players seem to prefer to switch back to the floating white even if in ideal position for post man knock. I take it he has been coached in his younger days by Robby Foldvari?

                              No, pretty sure Matt never had coaching from R.F. Bob Marshall had input for sure.
                              And it looks like Matt will be almost untouchable like Bob was. Another Kalgoorlie legend - Bob not Matt. .
