Barry Pinches and Andrew Pagett were involved in a spat during their meeting in qualifying for the 6 Red World Championship on Saturday, and the row continued on social media.
Pinches claimed a 6-2 win to advance to the second round, but the match was not without incident.

“Quite frankly, I’ve never been close to being so angry during my entire life,” Pinches wrote on Facebook. “I am carrying a cold… and was coughing a lot during our game.

“After being 2-0 down and making a couple of 40-odd breaks to virtually draw level, Andrew Pagett said to me something like: “do you know you didn’t cough once during those two breaks?

“I replied: ‘what are you trying to say and do you know how long I’ve been playing this game?’

“I was then about to say I have NEVER been pulled up for any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct in 40 years but before I could finish he said: ‘I don’t care how long you’ve been playing.

“I had a discussion with our referee after the game and I asked him if I’d coughed while my opponent was on the shot and he confirmed that I hadn’t.”
