TUESDAY 10 BALL – 18th DECEMBER : CLAUS WINS.
Germany’s Claus Thoden continued his recent run of good form to become our 10 Ball Champion for this week on Tuesday night.
After winning our Sunday 9 Ball Competition the previous week, he found the extra ball no problem at all as he won all six of his matches to claim the 1st Prize of 6000 baht.
From another massive entry of 33 players, he beat Gary Vinson from Iceland in the final to seal a great performance on the night.
His handicap is now increased to A+8 as a result.
Gary also played impressively to reach the final before finding our champion just too strong, and had to settle for 3000 baht as Runner-Up.
England’s Craig Jones and Stig Berntsen from Norway both played well to reach the semi-finals, collecting 1500 baht each.
