THURSDAY 9 BALL – 30th AUGUST : MIKE WINS.
Congratulations go to Mike Yang from The USA for winning our 9 Ball Competition on Thursday night.
After losing out in the final of our Sunday 9 Ball event earlier in the week by the narrowest of margins, he put things right to go all the way this time and lift the trophy.
From a total entry of 23 players, he beat Thai-Japanese player Go Hongyok in the final by 9 racks to 2 (race 9-4), to pocket the 1st Prize of 5000 baht.
Go got off to the best possible start in the final, taking a 2-0 lead before Mike could even get going.
Our champion dug deep though, and managed to find his form to reel off nine racks in succession to seal the win.
His handicap now moves up to A+9 as a result.
Go played well to reach the final and took home 2500 baht in 2nd Place.
The other money winners on the evening were Younis Ahmad from Bahrain and Megabreak staff member Tarn Sujhitra, who each collected 1250 baht for reaching the semi-finals.
Champion : Mike (A+8) – 5000 baht.
Runner-Up : Go (A+3) – 2500 baht.
Semi-finals : Younis (A+6) and Tarn (A+1) – 1250 baht each.
The Player Auction Prize Pot totalled 28900 baht and was won by Mike’s friend Sascha Klinge from Germany.
He had to pay 1900 baht for our winner, but the gamble paid off as they shared the 1st Payout of 11100.
1st (40%) : Sascha (Mike) – 11100 baht.
2nd (30%) : Gerhard (Go) – 9000 baht.
Equal 3rd (15%) : Me (Younis) and Gerhard (Tarn) – 4400 baht each.
