THURSDAY 9 BALL – 3rd OCTOBER : GO WINS.
Thai-Japanese player Go Hongyok won his 5th tournament of 2019 on Thursday night, taking down our 9 Ball Competition.
Off a recently increased handicap mark of A+5, he played consistently well all night long to stay undefeated through five matches and claim the 1st Prize of 5000 baht.
From a total entry of 25 players, he comfortably beat Megabreak’s Barrie Sherman in the final by 4 racks to 1 (race 4-6) to seal an impressive performance.
Barrie played some of his best pool in the last couple of months to reach the final before finding Go in top form, and pocketed 3000 baht as Runner-Up.
The other money winners on the night were Sweden’s Erik Makitalo and Aussie Adam Lux, who each took home 1250 baht for reaching the semi-finals.
