THURSDAY 9 BALL – 12th SEPTEMBER : AAPO WINS.
Congratulations go to Aapo Pariola from Finland for winning our 9 Ball Competition on Thursday evening.
After struggling to come to terms with his handicap increase in our rotation tournaments since moving up to A+6 just over a month ago, he finally got things right to go all the way to the 1st Prize of 5000 baht.
From a total entry of 24 players, he beat Thai player Pisit Chaikhutrakhul from Bangkok in the final, 4-7 in racks (race 4-9) to seal victory.
Our Runner-Up Pisit played some excellent pool to reach the final before finding the handicap just too much against our winner, and took home 3000 baht in 2nd.
The other money winners on the night were Go Hongyok from Japan and Zana Anwar from England, who both pocketed 1250 baht as losing semi-finalists.
Both players handicaps are moved up by one rack as a result.
Champion : Aapo (A+6) – 5000 baht.
Runner-Up : Pisit (A+11) – 3000 baht.
Semi-finals : Go (A+4) and Zana (A+3) – 1250 baht each.
The Player Auction Prize Pot totalled 21800 baht and was won by Peter Jiskoot.
He paid 900 baht for our winner and they shared the 1st Payout of 8500.
1st : Peter (Aapo) – 8500 baht.
2nd : Zana (Pisit) – 6200 baht.
Equal 3rd : Billy Hayes (Go) and Kanchana Chinboot (Zana) – 3000 baht each.
