SUNDAY 9 BALL – 11th NOVEMBER : JOEL WINS.
Last night’s 9 Ball Competition was won by Switzerland’s Joel Wenger for the third time in the last five weeks.
From a total entry of 22 players from 13 different countries, he continued his recent run of great form to claim victory and collect the 1st Prize of 5000 baht.
As with so many of our winners in recent times, he started off slowly, losing his first match of the evening in the groups before finding his form to win his next five matches and lift the trophy.
In the final he beat Norwegian Ronny Jakobsen in the deciding rack (race 8-4) to seal another win.
Ronny played well to reach the final, with some impressive performances along the way, before just losing out by the narrowest of margins, and pocketed 2500 baht in 2nd Place.
The other money winners on the evening were Canada’s Dennis Presiloski, and Hannu Torpström from Finland, who each took home 1250 baht for reaching the semi-finals.
