THURSDAY 9 BALL – 24th MAY : CHAZ WINS.
Charlie “Chaz” Ayres was in top form last week to win our Thursday 9 Ball Competition.
He did lose his second match of the evening in the Double Chance Group Stages, but once he qualified to the Single Knockout, he found top gear to cruise through the opposition and lift the trophy.
In the final he beat Germany’s Jimmy Schmitt by 7 racks to 1 (race 7-4) to pocket the 1st Prize of 5000 baht.
Jimmy played well to reach the final for the second consecutive week, but once again had to settle for the Runners-Up spot and 2500 baht.
The other money winners on the evening were new player, Ian Gavin from England and Nelson Tyler from The USA, who each took home 1250 baht as losing semi-finalists.

Runner-Up : Jimmy (A+4) – 2500 baht.
Semi-finals : Ian (A+3) and Nelson (A+1) – 1250 baht each.
The Player Auction Prize Fund totalled 19600 baht and was won by Gerhard Schebler.
