TUESDAY 10 BALL – 19th DECEMBER : ADAM WINS.
Australia’s Adam Lux is our 10 Ball Champion for this week.
Having been a regular player for the last four months since joining us at the end of August, he was also winning here for the very first time.
Tuesday night was his 51st competition, and only his second appearance in the final, but this time he went all the way to lift the trophy and take home the 1st Prize of 6000 baht.
From a total entry of 32 players from 13 different countries, he comfortably beat Dietmar Ptak from Germany in the final by 4 racks to 1 (race 4-6).
Dietmar, playing here for only the second time, did well to reach the final before running into Adam, and collected 3000 baht in 2nd Place.
