SUNDAY 9 BALL – 4TH FEBRUARY : NELSON WINS.
Nelson Tyler from The USA was the winner of our Sunday 9 Ball Competition earlier this week.
From a field of 33 players from 16 different countries he was in good form all night long to win six consecutive matches and pocket the 1st Prize of 6000 baht.
In the final he beat Aussie Adam Lux with a 6-9 billiard in the deciding rack (race 4-5), to seal victory by the narrowest of margins.
Adam, who was also undefeated en route to the final, just came up short against our champion, and had to settle for the Runners-Up spot and 3000 baht.
