Bump Start Needed for the Blade

After qualifying from Q School at the first attempt in order to maintain his professional status, Sam’s start to the new season did not go so well.

Can he find the form that took him to 43 in the professional rankings and a narrow defeat against the World number one Mark Selby in the last 16 of the World Championship in 2013. Follow Sam’s progress on his website

The Return of the Blade

Sam Baird - Break Building Masterclass 2017

The 2017/18 season is one Sam will want to forget. Having slid down the rankings Sam found himself with the unenviable tasks of having to compete in Q School in an attempt to get back on the tour. Q School requires a significant effort in order to qualify even for ‘established’ players. Having to win six, best of seven matches means you cannot afford to take anyone lightly as the result can be brutal.

With no time to feel sorry for himself Sam ‘swallowed his pride’, got back on the baize and after a close opening match against James Silverwood, came through to qualify.

With 2017/18 season now behind him, time to rebuild and climb back up the rankings where he belongs. Well done Sam!!
