TUESDAY 10 BALL – 12th JUNE : CRAIG WINS.
A quality performance by Craig Marsh from Wales on Tuesday night saw him become our 10 Ball Champion for this week.
Craig a professional 8 Ball player back in The UK, played very well all night long to win five consecutive matches and pocket the 1st Prize of 5000 baht.
He struggled to get over the line in his first match of the evening against Sunday’s 9 Ball champion Brooksey Brooks, but after that there was no stopping him as he cruised through his matches to lift the trophy.
In the final he beat Thailand’s Par Radardow Inamka without giving her chance to trouble the scorers (race 7-4), and his handicap now moves up to A+18 as a result.
Par also played well to reach the final, before running into our champion in top form, and collected 2500 baht as Runner-Up.
The other money winners on the evening were Johnny Whitley from England and Peter De Jaeger from Belgium, who each received 1250 baht as losing semi-finalists.
