The latest of the Winmau First Thursday of The Month Knockouts at the Wolverhampton Indoor Community Sports Stadium was won by none other than the American number one Larry (The Bald Eagle) Butler who finished as runner up to Glen Durrant in this year’s Winmau World Masters in Hull. In the quarter finals Butler was held to a very close 4-3 win by Richard Hosey but then had a more convincing 5-1 success in the semis against Lee Craig. From the other half of the draw a previous winner Mick Baker accounted for Simon Meredith with a 4-1 verdict to reach the last four and then booked his final place with a straight 5-0 win over Sam Guest

The final saw Butler clinch the top prize with a 6-2 win over Baker.
