THURSDAY 9 BALL – 5th OCTOBER : ANDY WINS.
England’s Andy Hall, one of our regular Tuesday 10 Ball players, made a rare appearance in last night’s 9 Ball Competition, and went all the way to lift the trophy and take home the 1st Prize of 6000 baht.
From another superb entry of 31 players from 13 different countries, he defeated Bo Andersson from Sweden in the final, 4-4 in racks (race 4-6).
