Trump then told Eurosport: « It’s always private. ». “It doesn’t happen very often – to me anyway. The nerves you get aren’t comparable to anything else in snooker. Winning tournaments – none. Maximize the vibration there. It’s always a pleasure to make one, especially on TV too.
« Usually when I get to 64, 72, nerves start popping in, but you just tell yourself » I’ve been training hard « , I felt like I was playing well yesterday in practice. But then it came to putting him out there on the match table, my beginnings gave me a lot of confidence, a century in the first frame, and it really led to.
