TUESDAY 10 BALL – JANUARY 21st : STIG WINS.
Our 10 Ball Champion for this week is Norwegian Stig Berntsen.
He was on top form all night long to stay undefeated whilst winning six matches to claim a well deserved victory.
From a total entry of 33, he beat China based Scotsman Eddy Hoffie in the deciding rack of the final (race 6-3) to pocket the 1st Prize of 6000 baht.
Eddy actually led the final by 2 racks to 1 and looked set for his first ever tournament victory here at Megabreak, but it wasn’t to be as Stig somehow managed to win the last five racks to snatch the win away by the narrowest of margins.
Consolation for the Scotsman was collecting 3000 baht in 2nd Place.
New player Nicolas Gircineanu from Romania and Jape Lappetelainen from Finland both reached the semi-finals, taking home 1500 baht each.
