“I should have made it” – Luca Brecel admits maximum disappointment after 147 World Grand Prix failures

Luca Brecel produced another glorious display of offensive snooker in a 4-1 win over the Welsh Open holder Jordan Brown at the World Grand Prix, but was disappointed not to have done a 147.

The Scottish Open winner and UK Championship finalist was on a second career high in third frame but lost his position on the 12th red of the break as he was forced to settle for 88 and a 3-0 lead.

Brecel added a 105 break after previous runs of 100 and 57 to secure a meeting with Jimmy robertson in the last 16 Thursday afternoon, but the sympathetic Belgian player was thinking of the 147 who had escaped.

I tried to gun red on a cushion. Maybe I shouldn’t have played this shot, but I was a little unlucky to end up where I ended up. I really should have done this maximum, I was so confident.

“But maybe next time in this tournament, you never know.

“The way I play now, it can happen in any game. I’m so confident and my cue was actually good in this game.

“It’s something to work on and be happy about. It’s about winning games and keeping confidence high.”

Brecel feels his 9-5 victory over John higgins in the Scottish Open final was more impressive than winning the British title just a week after his 10-5 loss to Zhao Xintong in the final at the York Barbican.

“Everything is so easy right now. You wonder why this game is sometimes so difficult. It was a very special boost in winning the Scottish Open. Winning the Scottish was a bigger achievement than winning the UK him – even “, he added.

“I was so happy to show everyone that I wasn’t going to be flat for the tournament. Winning was absolutely amazing.”
