SUNDAY 9 BALL GRAND FINAL : NID WINS.
Last Saturday’s 9 Ball Grand Final for Sunday Season 19 was dominated by the Thai ladies.
Only 4 of the 16 players were girls, but two of them, Nid Mirantee Phukthamt and Aom Nantaporn Chomthaisong managed to go all the way to the final.
These two girls have been the most successful and consistent females at Megabreak so far this year.
In the final Nid comfortably beat Aom by 5 racks to 1 (race 5-4) to collect the 1st Prize of 10500 baht.
She played very well all night long, remaining undefeated for 5 consecutive matches, and was a worthy winner.
Her handicap now moves up to A+5 for the very first time as a result.
Aom also played well to reach the final, before finding Nid too strong, and took home 6000 baht in 2nd Place.
Our resident Filipino professional Roland Garcia was next in line, pocketing 4500 baht for finishing 3rd, and he was closely followed by Jens Matzel from Germany in 4th, receiving 3000.
