Peter heron matches tonight can I remind all teams that this is an aggregate score competition. If an individual frame finishes level after a scoring shot on the final black there would not be a respotted black. If after the 5 frames have finished the scores are level, the two players from the final frame would then have a respotted black to decide who wins.
