THURSDAY 9 BALL – 11th MAY : HEIKO WINS.
Last night’s 9 Ball Competition produced our third consecutive “first time” winner at Megabreak.
An excellent entry of 32 players from 14 different countries took their chance, and it was Heiko Kadel from Germany, playing here for the 17th time, who took home the 1st Prize of 6500 baht.
Having lost his second match of the evening in the group stages, he then recorded five straight victories to lift the trophy.
He finished off in style as well, comfortably beating Sean Ezell from The USA in the final by 4 racks to 1 (race 4-7).
