In 2019 the format of the semi finals in the Pro Tour is stretched to best of 13 legs and a best of 15 legs for the final. But not everyone is aware of this as we saw again last night.
Watch how Arron Monk thought the game was over as he wanted to shake hands with Jeffrey de Zwaan.
It wasn’t the first team we saw something like this happening. Remember a similar thing happened between Ian White and Gerwyn Price during the first Players Championship of the year.

Still could be worse. During the same first tournament of 2019 both Jermaine Wattimena and Peter Wright thought the game was over which turned into the awkward situation below.
