Hello and good evening. Welcome to

highlights of the 2017 UK Snooker

0:00:340:00:40

championship from the York Barbican.

Coming up, the best of the action

0:00:400:00:43

from today's third-round matches. We

have lost world number one Mark

0:00:430:00:48

Selby and number three Ding Junhui.

Code number two Judd Trump survive

0:00:480:00:53

this afternoon against Graeme Dott?

0:00:530:00:55

This is a sort of match Judd Trump

will be really up for.

Great pot.

0:00:570:01:13

Perfect. Absolutely perfect.

0:01:130:01:17

That's a very good recovery shot.

Very impressive from Judd Trump so

0:01:210:01:30

far. Leading Graeme Dott 2-0.

This

is a massive frame coming up.

Foul.

0:01:300:01:40

Don't think he played the cannon on

the black. Error. Chancellor Graeme

0:01:400:01:44

Dott. Didn't fill me with much

confidence, the way he hit that

0:01:440:01:51

black. Almost missed it. What a

shot.

0:01:510:01:57

Brilliant four frames of snooker.

Two 90 breaks, 70 and 80. Frames are

0:02:020:02:08

shared, 2-2.

0:02:080:02:11

I just had a feeling with that shot.

This will definitely hurt Judd

0:02:150:02:21

Trump. Should be 3-2 in front. And

now he is 3-2 behind. What a

0:02:210:02:27

clearance from Graeme Dott.

0:02:270:02:30

Fantastic opening pot.

0:02:330:02:36

Another great shot.

0:02:400:02:43

Oh. Judd Trump remains in his chair.

Another one visit frame from Graeme

0:02:450:02:55

Dott. 5-2.

0:02:550:02:59

Foul.

Wow. That was the ultimate

mistake.

0:03:040:03:11

Here comes the handshake. You can

see Judd Trump and Graeme Dott, what

0:03:160:03:21

a fantastic result for the Scotsman.

Brilliant this afternoon. From two

0:03:210:03:26

down, winning the next six.

0:03:260:03:28

Generally these players don't have

many off days so you need to take

0:03:320:03:36

advantage where you can.

There were

two important frames, one at 2-0. A

0:03:360:03:42

long red to flick the black in. And

the frame at 2-2, I threw that away.

0:03:420:03:47

I didn't get many chances after

that, missing a couple of easy

0:03:470:03:51

balls. Graeme played well.

He has

only had a couple of visits in the

0:03:510:03:59

first frames. But something happened

in the third frame. I think he split

0:03:590:04:05

the pack and a red went in.

Well

done

0:04:050:04:08

the pack and a red went in.

Well

done to Graeme Dott. Judd Trump

0:04:080:04:12

joining defending champion Mark

Selby out of this tournament. And

0:04:120:04:16

Ding Junhui. And another big-name

crashing out, 2008 runner-up Marco

0:04:160:04:22

Fu beaten 6-4 by Lyu Haotian. He's

back tour this season having won the

0:04:220:04:29

2017 Asian championship. Fantastic

performance from him this afternoon.

0:04:290:04:37

Elsewhere in the all Wales clash,

Ryan Day was 4-1 down to Mark

0:04:370:04:43

Williams. Remarkably he won three in

a row to bring himself back into it

0:04:430:04:49

and ultimately win 6-5. Ryan Day's

fifth career win over his fellow

0:04:490:04:54

Welshman. 2011 champion Judd Trump

is out. Graeme Dott reaching the

0:04:540:05:03

semifinals in 2006. He goes through.

And LeAnn

0:05:030:05:06

let's turn our attention to Neil

Robertson. WK champion, winning in

0:05:150:05:21

2013 and 2015. Could he make it

third time lucky in 2017? Up against

0:05:210:05:28

England's Mark Joyce,

quarterfinalist at the 2010 UK

0:05:280:05:31

championship. A cracking match from

the start with Robertson knocking in

0:05:310:05:36

a 128 break in the opening frame.

2-2 at the mid-session interval.

0:05:360:05:42

Joyce took the fifth to lead 3-2.

0:05:420:05:45

COMMENTATOR: The black is very

difficult. Excellent pot.

0:05:480:05:57

Being left-handed, he might be able

to take the yellow here, but it's a

0:06:090:06:13

stretch, even for him. He may end up

having to take the green with arrest

0:06:130:06:22

if he can't reach yellow. -- with

the rest.

0:06:220:06:28

He's OK. It's just awkward.

Robertson is a tall lad, about six

0:06:310:06:42

foot two. Needs to be careful not to

foul on the red with his waistcoat.

0:06:420:06:48

That's why he's taken the green with

the rest after all. Normally very

0:06:480:06:58

reliable with the rest. That's a

very good shot.

0:06:580:07:07

The cue ball just running on a

touch. If he's not on this red then

0:07:090:07:15

he is very unfortunate. If he can't

quite see it, he should be able to

0:07:150:07:23

bend the cue ball just a touch with

left-hand side. Should be OK. Not

0:07:230:07:28

that difficult to swerve if he's

snookered. Yeah, having to bend a

0:07:280:07:36

little bit with left-hand side. Not

too much of a problem.

0:07:360:07:45

Will be interesting to see if he

wants to play the red closest to the

0:08:110:08:18

black spot for the black. Sometimes

players are reluctant to play

0:08:180:08:23

colours along the cushion.

0:08:230:08:29

It would make this frame-winning

break a lot easier. When you have to

0:08:310:08:37

keep getting the right side of the

blue the whole time, it's a tough

0:08:370:08:40

break.

0:08:400:08:43

Might have to take the brown on

here. Come round the angles for the

0:08:480:08:53

choice of two reds to the right-hand

corner. Unless he wants to leave

0:08:530:08:58

himself something more at distance.

0:08:580:09:04

This is going to require a

tremendous amount of cue power.

0:09:190:09:22

That's exactly what he got.

Fantastic shot.

0:09:220:09:28

He's got a couple of plants so far

this evening. Looking at another one

0:09:390:09:43

here.

0:09:430:09:45

There's a good four inches or so

between the two reds. This is

0:09:490:09:54

missable.

0:09:540:09:56

That's worked out very well.

Excellent shot.

What a confident

0:10:040:10:12

shot. 3-2 down. As you say, Peter,

that was very missable. Played it

0:10:120:10:18

very aggressively. Look at what he

has left, if he had missed that it

0:10:180:10:25

would have cost in the frame. Not

Out of the Woods yet.

0:10:250:10:32

Just potted that green to the left

side of the pocket. That's why he

0:10:480:10:53

didn't get enough travel on the cue

ball. Still OK.

0:10:530:10:57

Just not been able to get that

actual pinpoint position yet in this

0:11:070:11:11

break. Stunned the brown and get

straight to the red at the left

0:11:110:11:23

middle, you would think that will be

the shot to win the frame. Hard to

0:11:230:11:28

see where it can go wrong from here.

0:11:280:11:32

Just lost the cue ball a little bit

there. Still shouldn't be too much

0:13:220:13:30

of a problem for Neil. He certainly

would have liked to have been on an

0:13:300:13:39

easy read. -- and easier red.

0:13:390:13:45

With the 40 point lead, he certainly

will not be playing for the black

0:14:010:14:05

here.

0:14:050:14:10

Played that nicely.

0:14:260:14:29

Neil Robertson, 54 ahead with 67 on

the table. Just a red and colour.

0:15:280:15:37

Neil Robertson will be pretty

relieved to be level in the match.

0:15:370:15:46

It's been a good response from him.

Because Mark Joyce has definitely

0:15:460:15:51

put him under pressure this evening.

The standard before the interval was

0:15:510:15:59

absolutely fantastic. Very difficult

to keep maintaining such a high

0:15:590:16:05

standard, though. And as the

pressure builds, there's always

0:16:050:16:13

going to be one or two mistakes that

creep into a player's game. So this

0:16:130:16:19

is good stuff from Neil here.

0:16:190:16:25

What a fantastic shot that was. To

develop the last red. Giving himself

0:16:510:16:58

every chance of making the century

break. We know he loves to make

0:16:580:17:05

century breaks, Stephen.

0:17:050:17:08

Yeah, had that magnificent season,

over 100 century breaks in one

0:17:270:17:33

season. Phenomenal effort.

0:17:330:17:36

This has been a great response, this

frame, the plant in the middle of

0:18:000:18:05

the break was a risky shot to play.

Didn't think about it, just played

0:18:050:18:11

aggressively. Opened up the reds,

and this has been the result.

0:18:110:18:16

Pink, the second century of the

night for Neil Robertson. Fantastic

0:18:220:18:27

break. Not bothered with the black.

Happy to level the match. 3-3.

0:18:270:18:34

STUDIO: Both players giving it their

all tonight. Sharing the next two

0:18:370:18:42

frames with a break of 84 from

Robertson putting him in the lead.

0:18:420:18:46

Joyce firing back with a break of 50

to make it 4-4. We can go to frame

0:18:460:18:53

nine. Mark Joyce with a good lead

and at the table.

0:18:530:18:57

COMMENTATOR: That's pretty good. He

will be happy with that. The

0:19:000:19:06

priority for Mark Joyce now is not

to let Neil Robertson see a pot.

0:19:060:19:12

Neil is concerned about pushing a

red over the right-hand black

0:19:550:19:59

pocket. Needs to avoid the

double-kiss. Played it well.

0:19:590:20:06

This long red is on. A good test of

cueing, this. Well played.

0:20:210:20:31

Starting to look for all the world

like it would be 5-4 to Mark Joyce.

0:21:100:21:16

Will we see another of the

favourites go out of this year's UK

0:21:160:21:20

championship?

0:21:200:21:24

And all credit to Mark Joyce.

Because in the first frame, Neil

0:21:320:21:37

Robertson looked as if he was in top

form. Mark Joyce withstood the

0:21:370:21:48

pressure and has played well enough

himself to put Neil Robertson under

0:21:480:21:52

pressure.

0:21:520:21:55

This has been a really good

performance so far from Mark Joyce.

0:22:010:22:08

Nice pot. Along the cushion. Very

confident. Mark Joyce.

0:24:300:24:42

Breaks of 80 and 44 in that frame

from Mark Joyce. Takes a 5-4 lead.

0:25:350:25:43

Neil Robertson has it all to do.

STUDIO: Stephen Hendrie absolutely

0:25:430:25:48

right, another big-name struggling

to stay in the tournament. Robertson

0:25:480:25:51

knocked in a break of 90 to take the

tenth frame. We join it in a very

0:25:510:25:56

tight final frame. They have been

playing more than 20 minutes

0:25:560:25:58

already. Robertson with a league,

but Joyce to play. Come two you

0:25:580:26:07

would be a brave man to take this

on. I don't think it's an option.

0:26:070:26:11

But he has the upper hand in this

safety exchange, Mark Joyce. He's

0:26:110:26:16

the one who can play the positive

shot.

0:26:160:26:21

Very good.

0:26:270:26:31

It was a good shot, but kissing the

brown has taken the place out of the

0:27:160:27:24

cue ball. But Neil did very well to

get the ball back around the black

0:27:240:27:33

and up to the baulk end.

Mark will

try to get the cue ball behind the

0:27:330:27:42

yellow and pink. Chance of playing

the plant here as well. I feel he

0:27:420:27:53

definitely tried to hit the red

thinner than that. This is an

0:27:530:27:57

opportunity now. Has played some

very good safety shots in this frame

0:27:570:28:02

so far.

It's a shot that Neil

Robertson is normally so good at. So

0:28:020:28:14

reliable.

0:28:140:28:17

Great shot.

0:28:220:28:32

Can definitely see at least 24

points. Before he needs to think

0:28:320:28:42

about disturbing any of the four

reds on the left side cushion. Don't

0:28:420:28:53

think he will do it often red. Has a

lovely angle on the black. Top spin

0:28:530:29:01

to the reds further up the table.

Probably pot the black, the open red

0:29:010:29:10

and then leave himself high on the

black. They touch of right-hand

0:29:100:29:13

side.

0:29:130:29:18

Did not hit out as well as I think

they could have. Still managed to

0:29:520:29:57

generate the power, great shot. He

will be delighted with that result.

0:29:570:30:08

Choice of two reds year, 29 point

lead.

0:30:080:30:13

Did not expect him to miss that.

Needed red, black. I think red blue

0:30:300:30:40

would have left Joyce needing the

snooker.

0:30:400:30:48

Try to send the cue ball up

somewhere behind the yellow and pink

0:31:280:31:32

to cover the red over the right

corner but dangerous leaving the red

0:31:320:31:36

over this left corner.

0:31:360:31:39

If he played right and got the

snooker on all reds it could create

0:31:430:31:49

a great opportunity for him but I

think it's just too risky.

0:31:490:31:53

Wants to play this red, cushion

first. I think you'd have to play in

0:33:280:33:34

such a way to take the cue ball up

to the baulk end of the table. I

0:33:340:33:39

think if he wasn't hampered by the

red on the side cushion he would

0:33:390:33:42

play that shot. Bridging over that

red makes it so much more difficult.

0:33:420:33:55

Got 29 point lead. Very valuable at

this stage of this frame. Desperate

0:33:550:34:03

to play this.

0:34:030:34:13

Joyce looking at where he wants to

leave the cue ball to leave it safe

0:34:400:34:43

but the red near the blue, it is

comfortable to the right middle

0:34:430:34:51

pocket. Every shot now could be his

last. But there might be a long time

0:34:510:34:57

waiting for a chance.

0:34:570:35:01

Would hate to lose the deciding

frame playing a safety shot.

0:35:050:35:18

Under the circumstances that was

excellent, very, very good shot.

0:35:290:35:36

Yeah, worked that out very well.

0:35:370:35:48

Showed good composure there,

patients. Risky red to the right

0:35:490:35:55

middle.

0:35:550:36:01

Needless to say, did not want a kiss

on the brown.

0:36:270:36:39

Just posted the red and then caused

the cue ball to travel a bit faster.

0:37:100:37:26

Could put Neil in a lot of trouble

here.

0:37:260:37:32

Must say he has been incredibly

unlucky to finish there.

I think I

0:37:510:38:02

would play their safety, put the cue

ball on the baulk cushion, force him

0:38:020:38:06

to play the one on the cushion.

0:38:060:38:10

A wry smile from Neil Robertson, but

cannot see the edge of this red in

0:38:240:38:28

the middle of the table. If the

green had stopped half an inch

0:38:280:38:35

earlier he would be snookered on

everything.

0:38:350:38:46

Is there a gap between the green and

blue? Yes. Slowly creeping back into

0:38:500:39:00

this frame, Mark Joyce.

0:39:000:39:05

Good, solid pot but again

concentrating so hard on making sure

0:39:270:39:33

you get the pot possession is not

there. The blue goes to the far left

0:39:330:39:50

corner everything needs good cueing

at this stage.

0:39:500:40:01

Don't think he has quite got the

angle to bring the red interplay

0:40:160:40:21

which is on the cushion. With a bit

more straight and he could have

0:40:210:40:28

played that.

0:40:280:40:38

Now we know how tight these pockets

are, involves long the cushion.

0:40:380:40:51

That's just about perfect. But he

has to go all out for this pot and

0:40:570:41:05

play it dead weight to give it a

chance of going in and he's hit it

0:41:050:41:08

perfectly. Otherwise it will stay

right over the pocket.

I totally

0:41:080:41:15

agree. If he misses it, so be it.

0:41:150:41:26

Well done. Great shot. His heart

will be pounding now. Absolutely

0:41:490:42:03

perfect on the black.

0:42:030:42:14

Could do with the green being able

to pass the blue to the right

0:42:160:42:19

middle.

0:42:190:42:29

Going to play for the green to the

left middle, don't overhit it and

0:42:340:42:38

snooker yourself behind the blue.

Neil Robertson sitting in his chair

0:42:380:42:44

will be fearing the worst here. Will

they get another chance?

0:42:440:42:58

Can Joyce hold himself together? For

a famous victory...

0:43:060:43:20

Brown, blue and pink required. Been

behind in this whole frame, Mark

0:43:540:44:03

Joyce. They are fantastic frame to

win.

0:44:030:44:18

Straight on the blue has he? Going

to have to play a prank from a bit

0:44:430:44:49

of distance. Just how you prefer to

play the point, do you prefer to

0:44:490:44:56

leave a bit of angle or leave it

straight?

0:44:560:45:08

This is when you rely on the

technique, all those hours of

0:45:100:45:16

practice, can you hit this smoothly,

as they are still on the shot?

0:45:160:45:21

Deliver the cue straight?

0:45:210:45:31

Shows what it means to Mark Joyce,

fantastic victory, another one of

0:45:320:45:39

the favourites falls at this UK

championship, well done to Mark

0:45:390:45:43

Joyce, what a performance. It is up

there to be honest.

0:45:430:45:51

The way he was playing I was just

hanging in

0:45:540:45:56

The way he was playing I was just

hanging in there but I did score

0:45:560:45:57

well myself. I missed the boat, I

think it was the seventh frame,

0:45:570:46:02

missed a black of the spot and left

me a practice routine and I think I

0:46:020:46:06

made one off it. I thought I had

blown it and he was going to kick

0:46:060:46:11

on. Obviously I won the next two

frames, then you think you will get

0:46:110:46:17

at least one good chance to get over

the line and then I butchered the

0:46:170:46:21

red of his break in the tenth frame

and he's made another visit and in

0:46:210:46:28

the last, the way the balls were,

when I was sort of 25 behind for the

0:46:280:46:35

reds safe I thought I had blown it

again to be honest but just managed

0:46:350:46:40

to hold myself together.

That is

five of the ten best players in the

0:46:400:46:45

world out of this year 's UK

championship, incredibly. No

0:46:450:46:49

problems at all for mark Allen, the

man from Northern Ireland safely

0:46:490:46:53

through, always on top in his match

against Peter Lines. He took a 3-0

0:46:530:46:58

lead before it became 3-2 and

despite Peter Lines hanging on in

the safety against Peter who is one

0:47:350:47:39

of the best safety players we have
