SUNDAY 9 BALL – 6th MAY : AOM WINS.
A rare victory for the girls on Sunday, with Aom Nantaporn Chomthaisong becoming only the 4th female player to win a competition at Megabreak so far this year.
Playing off her recently increased handicap mark of A+4 after a good showing (5th) in our High Roller, she defied the odds to pocket the 1st Prize of 5500 baht.
She lost her very first match of the evening in the double chance group stages, before finding her form to win her next six matches and lift the trophy.
In the final she beat Hassain Qattan from Bahrain by 4 racks to 2 (race 4-6).
Hassain played well to reach the final before finding Aom too strong, and took home 3000 baht in 2nd Place.
The other money winners on the evening were Jeff Johnson from England and Peter Jiskoot from The Netherlands, who each collected 1500 baht for reaching the semi-finals.
