TUESDAY 10 BALL GRAND FINAL : SCOTT IS CHAMPION.
Congratulations go to Scott Cooney (A+20) for winning our Tuesday 10 Ball Grand Final for Season 9 on Saturday night.
He successfully defended his Grand Final Title from Season 8, defeating Mindaugas Jomantas (A+3) in the final by 14 racks to 1 (race 14-3), to collect the 1st prize of 10,000 baht.
Scott played well throughout the tournament, only dropping a total of 4 racks out of 81 racks played over 5 separate matches, and was a worthy winner.
Mindaugas also played well on the evening, and when he won the second rack of the final to make the score 1-1, victory for him looked on the cards.
He could not convert his early advantage though, and had to settle for the 2nd prize of 5000 baht.
Aom Nantaporn Chomthaisong (A+1) followed on from her Thursday 9 Ball victory by reaching the semi-finals, along with Fluke Birman (A+4), and they each collected 2500 baht prize money.
Fluke’s handicap now moves up to A+5 as a result.
The other money winners on the evening were Tommy Fineman (A+6), Per Makitalo (A+4), John Weber (A+2), and Ice Rattana Sornsin (A+), who all took home 1000 baht “money back” as losing quarter-finalists.
Ice’s handicap is also increased to A+1 due to her quarter-final placing.
