Peter Ebdon proved that a never-say-die attitude can produce results by winning a frame against Stephen Hendry from 0-79 behind at the Championship League last night.
Ebdon needed three snookers to tie the third frame and eventually won it on the black with the aid of a free ball after a very dramatic few minutes of snooker.
This is not quite a record: Willie Thorne once won a frame against Neal Foulds from 0-80 behind.
In the end, Hendry won the last frame to complete a 3-1 victory.
Even so, it just shows what can happen when you don't abandon all hope...
