SUNDAY 9 BALL – 19th NOVEMBER : TOM WINS.
Norway’s Tom Fossum got back to winning ways in our Sunday 9 Ball Competition this week.
Having had limited success so far this year, he finally produced the form we all know he is capable of to win at Megabreak for the first time since August 2016.
He lost his first match of the evening in the Group Stages, before raising his game to win six consecutive matches and lift the trophy.
In the final he defeated our “ever-present” Dutchman, Albert Gringhuis by 9 racks to 2 (race 9-4) to receive the 1st Prize of 6000 baht.
Albert played well to reach the final before finding Tom just too strong, and took home 3000 baht in 2nd Place.
Tommy Fineman from Israel and Hannu Torpström from Finland both reached the semi-finals, collecting 1500 baht each.
