TUESDAY 10 BALL – 5th NOVEMBER : JUSSI WINS.
Sweden’s Jussi Rautio is our 10 Ball Champion for this week.
Playing in just his second tournament here since November last year, he was on top form all night long to stay undefeated whilst winning five straight matches and pocket the 1st Prize of 5500 baht.
From another good turnout of 26 players, he beat Filipino professional Patric Gonzales in the final, 3-3 in racks (race 8-3 and ball spot on 6) to seal an impressive performance on the night.
Patric showed his usual class to reach the final before finding the handicap too much against the in form Scandinavian, and took home 3000 baht in 2nd Place.
The other money winners on the night were last week’s finalist Stew Boydeste from England, and local Thai girl Fon Vatsana Kampumee, who each collected 1250 baht for reaching the semi-finals.
