This clip is from the 1987 UK Championship. Alex is playing his old foe Steve Davis in his first appearance since his ban for headbutting a tournament offical exactly a year previous. Here in frame 4 he plays a shot that you rarely see, deliberately using the angle of the middle pocket to snooker Davis. A clever shot that proves Alex wasn't all about crashing balls around the table.
