Jim Bentley

Jim Bentley was an octochamp in Series 50.

He overcame the sitting champion Brian McKeon by just 9 points before going on to win 7 more games, including a score of 112 against Richard Francis, winning by 50 points. He went into the finals as #4 seed and faced #5 seed Adam Laws. In a very close game, they went into the conundrum NIPPERAID with 78 points each, but it was Laws that solved DRAINPIPE in 11 seconds to go onto the semi-final against #1 seed Chris Cummins.
