Women’s world 9-ball champion Kelly Fisher saw her World Pool Masters hopes come to an early end in Gibraltar as Skyler Woodward knocked out defending champion David Alcaide.
With fans returning to the arena for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, those lucky enough to have a ticket were treated to a top-class weekend of pool at the Europa Sports Complex.
Fisher, who recently opened up to Sky Sports about her incredible journey to the top, was beaten 7-3 by Australian Justin Sajich in the preliminary round.
Oh, my word. Have you ever seen anything quite like it?!
