TUESDAY 10 BALL – 4th SEPTEMBER : SNAKE WINS AGAIN.
“Snake” Vesa Kulmala from Finland was in top form again on Tuesday night to become our 10 Ball Champion for this week.
After winning last week’s Sunday 9 Ball event, he continued his run of impressive play to stay undefeated all night long and claim the 1st Prize of 5000 baht.
In the final he beat England’s Craig Jones by 6 racks to 2 (race 6-5) to seal victory and lift the trophy.
Craig, playing in his first tournament here for nearly six months, did well to reach the final before finding Snake too strong, collected 2500 baht as Runner-Up.
The other money winners on the evening were Thailand’s National 9 Ball Champion for this year, Preecha, and first time player Matt Sheils from England, who each took home 1250 baht for reaching the semi-finals.
