After an over hit safety from his opponent, Chris was given a further opportunity and as Chris reached 23 he unfortunately ran out of position, but with the frame nearly won, he potted an unbelievable red down the side cushion to gain pinpoint position on the black, as Chris reached 44 and a clearance looking an almost certainty.
