SUNDAY 9 BALL – 18th AUGUST : JOE WINS.
Joe Jamnan Jitpakdee made the trip from Bangkok worthwhile to go all the way to 1st Place in last night’s Sunday 9 Ball Competition.
From a good turn out of 22 players from 15 different countries, he defeated Filipino pro Michael Feliciano in the deciding rack of the final (race 8-3 with ball spots on 5+7) to pocket the Winners Prize of 5000 baht.
His handicap now moves up to A+7 as a result.
Michael played some fantastic pool to reach the final and was rather unfortunate to lose to Joe, having looked set for victory when he led 7-1.
Joe somehow managed to snatch the last two racks away from the Pinoy tho, and he had to settle for 2500 baht in 2nd Place.
Another Filipino pro Patrick Gonzales also put in a superb performance to reach the semi-finals, along with Bangkok based Englishman Andy Johnson, and they both took home 1250 baht.
Champion : Joe (A+6) – 5000 baht.
Runner-Up : Michael (Pro+) – 2500 baht.
Semi-finals : Patrick (Pro+) and Andy (A+5) – 1250 baht each.
The Player Auction created another big Prize Pot of 28600 baht and was won by Joe’s friend App SillyFace.
He paid 1500 baht for our winner and they shared the 1st Payout of 11k.
1st : App (Joe) – 11000 baht.
2nd : Bash (Michael) – 8000 baht.
Equal 3rd : Olly (Patrick) and App (Andy) – 4000 baht each.
