It was an opening match to make Gibraltar rock as Stephen opened us his account at the last Euro event of the year in style.
A scintillating 105 average coupled with a combination of power scoring and strong finish sealed the Bullet a fabulous first round victory over Daryl Gurney.
Despite an average just under the ton mark, Superchin found himself on the wrong end of a 6-3 scoreline.
Disappointingly, the loveable Liverpudlian was unable to repeat the feat against Jonny Clayton as it was the Welshman who progressed courtesy of a 6-2 win.
Next stop, Barnsley for Stephen embarking on a quartet of pro tours beginning next Thursday.
Heartened by a good win in Gib, the Bullet said: “Slightly frustrated not to go further after I played so well against Daryl [Gurney].
“But every day is different and I struggled to get into my rhythm in the next match.
“As always, I’ll take the positives and move forward.
“I’ve a few days to get ready for the pro tour events so I’ll be looking to push on there.”
