Joe Perry says he is not going to dwell on his Masters quarter final loss to Mark Allen on Friday.
The Chatteris cueman went into the match full of confidence after breaking his Masters duck at the seventh attempt with an impressive 6-3 win over former champion Ding Junhui.
But he could not reproduce his fine form in a scrappy encounter with Allen, with the Northern Irishmen winning 6-4.
Perry said: “It was a comedy of errors. When you start missing balls then tension and anxiety creep in and it just snowballs.
“Those type of matches always tend to go close. I lost all of the close frames - or maybe I threw them away.

“Over a long season you’re bound to play the odd bad game, you just don’t want to do it on a big stage like this.
“But I’ll go into my next match as positive and confident as ever.”
