For a change this week, our 10 Ball Competition Report has been kindly done by our Australian friend, Adam Lux.
TUESDAY 10 BALL – 15th MAY : COONEY WINS.
Tournament administrator Scott Cooney is the winner of this week’s 10 Ball Competition.
Pro-rated Cooney chose exactly the right time to make a return to tournament play, and used his group stage bye to good effect before romping home with the win.
From a total entry of 28 players, he beat improved Thai female Gan Kanchana Chinboot in the final by 8 racks to 2 (race 8-4) to collect the 6000 baht winners purse.
The resurgent Gan played superbly all night and had her backers on very good terms with themselves as she stormed to a 2-0 lead in the final, but Cooney switched into overdrive to win the next eight racks, forcing Chinboot to be satisfied with 2nd Place and 3000 baht.
The other money winners on the night were new player Gunter Kreibich from Germany, and Marko Karvinen from Finland, who both took home 1500 baht upon meeting their demise in the semi-finals.
Champion : Scott (Pro) – 6000 baht.
