SUNDAY 9 BALL – 25th FEBRUARY : CHARLIE WINS.
England’s Charlie Ayres won his first tournament at Megabreak for nearly 7 years in our Sunday 9 Ball Competition last night.
From a total entry of 22 players, he beat Finland’s Jape Lappetelainen in the final by 6 racks to 2 (race 6-4) to pocket the 1st Prize of 5000 baht.
He lost his very first match of the evening in the double chance group stages, before raising his game to win six matches on the spin and lift the trophy.
In the final he lost the first rack, before winning 4 consecutive racks to take a commanding lead.
Jape fought back to win the next and make it 4-2, before Charlie won the next two to seal a well deserved victory.
