THURSDAY 9 BALL GRAND FINAL – SEASON 25.
SATURDAY 23rd NOVEMBER : JIMMY WINS.
Congratulations go to Germany’s Jimmy Schmitt for winning our Thursday 9 Ball Grand Final for Season 25 last night.
From the full field of 16 players, he was on top form to qualify for the final undefeated with four straight victories.
He was made to work very hard in the final though against our resident Dutchman Albert Gringhuis, who qualified through the One Loss Side of the draw.
Albert won the first set (race 7-4) by 4 racks to 3, but the German gained his revenge by winning the second and deciding set in the final rack to claim the 1st Prize of 10000 baht.
Consolation for our “Combo King” Albert was pocketing 5500 baht in 2nd Place.
