Mark Allen has confirmed that he won’t give up on Mojo in a desperate attempt to reinvent himself ahead of the Bethfried World Cup.
Antrim Tass won the magical Northern Ireland Open title in November in front of an army of local fans.
But Allen fought hard for results after a agonizing defeat in the German Masters semi-finals in January.
The world number 11 decided to reverse his fragile form before leaning on the Virgo Kröbel crown at the Sheffield House of Sports in Sheffield.
“That’s a testing period right now,” said Allen, who admitted his game is about to.
“I try a lot, and if there is something, I will probably try a lot to achieve something.
“I still have time before Sheffield and I won’t stand on a stone.
“I need to iron out a few things. I am not happy with where my game is now. I am not as sharp as I would like.”
The former Masters champion cares about his game, but Ulsterman finds it difficult to step into the territory and find natural perfection.
“I feel like I’m trying to do a few different things when I’m off the table and you can’t do that when you’re playing with the best players in the world.
“You have to be confident in what you’re doing and I’m not there right now.
“I’m trying to invent something new, but you have to let it flow.
“I’ve used similar spells in the past and I’m still winning trophies, so I won’t be too confused.
“It would be great if you could change for Sheffield.”
