Chris Dobey produced the goods on his World Grand Prix debut by defeating Ricky Evans and he shared his preparation for the double start tournament which is one of the reasons why it paid off.

Dobey said that he went back and played in the local leagues in order to practice this format; so he is delighted to get the win in a tournament he has always watched on TV.

“I’m delighted to get the win,” said Dobey. “For my debut, I think a 90 average is decent and my doubles went in well.

“This is a competition I’ve watched on TV and everyone wants to play in it to test themselves. I even went back to my local leagues to practice, and it’s paid off.”
