Davy Morris is a player who could be about to make a breakthrough.

He won the Republic of Ireland national title at all age levels - just as Mark Allen did in Northern Ireland - and has kept his place on the main tour these last three years, edging up to 58th in the world rankings.

Davy is just 20 and represents the next wave of Irish snooker. He has practised with Ken Doherty, who rates him very highly.

Of course, it's tough at the qualifiers, particularly for young players coming up against hardened match players.

That said, Davy today plays Jamie Cope who is, like him, a young, attacking pro. This will be a hard match but its style will suit the young Irishman.

If he wins he will be through to the televised stages of a ranking event for the first time in his career.

I wish David all the best. I have been in a few amateur tournaments recently including the EBSA European Champs and play-off in Belgium in June. I have been impressed by the dedication of the Irish coach and by the enthousiasm of the young Irish players. It's paying off, several of them got on MT this season, and snooker is the winner!

Agree with 9:12am - snooker may be the winner but I Cope to god the winner today is young Jamie Cope. It's about time he won a tournament, so why not start with the Grand Prix?

Dear Monique
How are you! I find it strange to hear a female talk of snooker technique. Without being quizical, but really interested, what branch of snooker technique so impresed you with the Irish lads monique?
In all seriousness, did you hear something new or possible original?
Mr hey you

Dear Monique
I'm sorry lass if my questions on snooker technique made you shy or are you frightened lass of having your brains picked?
I read in your profile that you are from Belgium and also a mathematician, therefore you will probable understand the Mechanics of the balls and the importance of physics in snooker.

The game of snooker has never been blessed with deep thinkers Monique like mathematicians.
Mr hey you.
PS Please do not get the impression Monique that I am trying to trick or embarrass you on snooker technique, nor am I trying to chat you up for a free holiday Belgium; though I maybe tried to chat your Grandmother up in that lovely spring weather we had there in 19-44. DM
