THURSDAY 9 BALL – MARCH 5th : CARLO WIN.
Dutchman Carlo van Rijswijk was the winner of our 9 Ball Competition on Thursday night.
Playing here for just the tenth time, and from another excellent turn out of 34, he was on top form all night long to win all six of his matches and claim his first ever tournament victory with us.
In the final he beat new player, Tim Singh from England in the deciding rack (race 3-7) to collect the 1st Prize of 6000 baht.
Tim showed good form to reach the final before unluckily hanging the 9 in last rack, and took home 3000 baht in 2nd.
Two of our German regulars reached the semi finals, Jimmy Schmitt and Markus Nolberczak, each pocketing 1500 baht prize money.
