Chatteris potter Joe Perry described his exit to snooker legend Jimmy White as ‘embarrassing’ on social media after going down 5-3 in the second round of the German Masters in Berlin today (Fri, Dec 9).
The ‘Whirlwind’ came back from 3-0 down to compile a five-frame winning streak, while Perry lost a 50-point lead in the final frame.
Perry’s reaction on Twitter was: “Embarrassing! I’ve been very poor for a long time now.”
Perry is ranked number eight in the world, and is 15th in the money list this year with just over £72k in prizes, but managed just one break past the half century mark.
The Fenland cueman had earlier beaten Kurt Maflin 5-3 in the first round with a century and two 50’s in the first four frames.
