SUNDAY 9 BALL – 4th MARCH : ALBERT WINS.
Sunday night was “Combo night” at Megabreak as our resident Dutchman Albert Gringhuis went all the way to lift the trophy and bag the 1st Prize of 5000 baht.
From a total entry of 30 players, he lost his very first match in the double chance groups before winning five straight matches to claim victory.
In the final he beat Jayson de Chavez Bilyaristang Guro from The Philippines with an extravagant 1-9 combo in the deciding rack (race 4-9), with the Filipino not even getting chance to visit the table!!
Jayson, as usual showed a high level of play to reach the final, before just falling short against Albert, and collected 3000 baht in 2nd.
