Match-winning shot from Gould. A wonderful long cut of the yellow to the bottom-left pocket, but he isn't quite on the green, so it's not over yet.
A break of 35 is what he can do. Not bad, but it won't be enough and now Gould is back at the table with his confidence up. Two reds left.
Finally, Gould's off the mark. What can he do now?
And that's it. Still no points on the board for Couch and all to do.
Gould's 89 will take the frame, but Couch wants to hit something in. He comes to the table but fails to pot a red to the bottom-left pocket. Frustrating? His face says it all.
Frame ball here and in it goes for Gould - clinical.
Couch is yet to get off the mark in this one as Gould makes another half-century.
And so it proves as Gould takes the first frame.
Three reds left and 70 points behind, Couch still comes to the table in the hope that he can salvage this frame. Unlikely.
Solid start from Gould. He's now 55 points in front made up in two breaks and should take the opener.
We're into the last match of the day, with Martin Gould taking on Matthew Couch.
