THURSDAY 9 BALL GRAND FINAL – SEASON 22.
SATURDAY 15th DECEMBER : JOHNNY WINS.
Congratulations go to England’s Johnny Whitley for winning our Thursday 9 Ball Grand Final for Season 22 on Saturday evening.
From the full field of 16 players, he was in top form all night long to remain undefeated through five straight matches and claim the 1st Prize of 10500 baht.
Playing off his recently increased handicap of A+4, he only lost a total of nine racks in the whole competition, such was his dominance over the opposition.
In the final he beat Jimmy Schmitt from Germany by 4 racks to 1 (race 4-5) to seal a very impressive performance.
Jimmy lost his very first match of the evening, before winning six matches on the spin on the One Loss Side of the draw to reach the final, and pocketed 6000 baht in 2nd Place.
