THURSDAY 9 BALL – 26th SEPTEMBER : NELSON WINS.
American Nelson Tyler won his second 9 Ball tournament in the space of just 11 days here at Megabreak last night.
From another good entry of 29 players, he was on top form all night long to stay undefeated whilst winning all five of his matches to claim victory.
In the final he beat Bangkok based Thai, Pisit Chaikhutrakhul 3-7 in racks, (race 3-10) to collect the 1st Prize of 5000 baht.
Pisit showed great consistency in his game to reach the final as he did two weeks ago, but once again had to settle for the Runners-Up spot and 3000 baht.
His handicap now moves up to A+12 as a result.
Sunday’s 9 Ball finalist Ian Ito and new player Song Punkavasin both did well to reach the semi-finals, taking home 1250 baht each.
