THURSDAY 9 BALL – 5th SEPTEMBER : MANU WINS.
The home nation continue to dominate our Thursday 9 Ball Competition with them recording their 5th win in the last six weeks.
In recent times the girls have been winning, but this week one of the boys was victorious.
And it was also one of the youngest winners we ever have had.
12 year old local Manu Manuclub, playing here for just the 13th time, showed a much improved level of play on past performances to go all the way to the 1st Prize of 5500 baht.
From a total entry of 26 players, he beat Matti G from France in the final by 4 racks to 3 (race 4-7) and his handicap now moves up to A+2 as a result.
Matti played well to reach his first final with us before finding the handicap too much to claw back against the Thai youngster and took home 3000 baht in 2nd Place.
His handicap is also increased by one rack to A+5.
The other money winners on the night were the husband and wife pairing of Zoli and Nong Pocza, who each collected 1250 baht for reaching the semi-finals.
Champion : Manu (A+1) – 5500 baht.
Runner-Up : Matti (A+4) – 3000 baht.
Semi-finals : Zoli (A+5) and Nong (A+) – 1250 baht each.
The Player Auction Prize Pot totalled 27100 baht and was dominated by our semi-finalist Zoli.
He bought Manu, Nong and himself for a combined total of 2900 baht, and walked away with an extra 14k in his pocket.
1st : Zoli (Manu) – 8000 baht.
2nd : Gerhard (Matti) – 5400 baht.
Equal 3rd : Zoli (Himself and Nong) – 3000 baht twice.
Equal 5th : Eddy Hoffie (Go and Gerry), Markus (Himself), and Da (Nelson) – 1600 baht each.
