THURSDAY 9 BALL – 29th MARCH : DENNIS WINS.
Another fantastic turn out of 38 players for this week’s Thursday 9 Ball Competition, which saw Canada’s Dennis Presiloski take the spoils.
He was in top form all night long off his recently increased handicap, to win six consecutive matches and pocket the 1st Prize of 6000 baht.
In the final he beat Hua Hin based Filipino Jayson de Chavez, 3-5 in racks (race 3-8) after both players agreed to play a shorter race than scheduled (4-11).
Jayson lost his very first match of the evening in the group stages, before winning five straight to reach the final, and took home 3500 baht in 2nd.
