SUNDAY 9 BALL – 5th NOVEMBER : JENS WINS.
Another good turnout of 26 players for our 9 Ball Competition on Sunday, which saw Jens Matzel from Germany lift the trophy.
In the final he defeated Australia’s Adam Lux in the deciding rack (race 9-4) to take home the 1st Prize of 6000 baht.
Adam, playing in his first final here at the 33rd attempt was on the hill after 9 racks (score 6-3), but Jens dug deep to win the last three racks and seal victory by the narrowest of margins.
Consolation for Adam was collecting 3000 baht in 2nd Place.
The other money winners on the evening were Nok Yung from Thailand and Nelson Tyler from The USA, who each received 1500 baht for reaching the semi-finals.
