THURSDAY 9 BALL GRAND FINAL : JAYSON WINS.
A quality performance from Filipino Jayson de Chavez Bilyaristang Guro saw him win our Thursday 9 Ball Grand Final for Season 20 on Saturday night.
From the full entry of 16 players, he played well all night long to pocket the 1st Prize of 11000 baht.
He had to work very hard in the final though, where he came up against Megabreak’s Gan Kanchana Chinboot.
She had already beaten him once in the Winners Side final, so he would have to beat her twice (race 11-4) to lift the trophy.
He comfortably won the first set by 11 racks to 1, but found himself in big trouble in the deciding set with the score at 4-3 after seven racks.
He dug deep though, and somehow managed to win seven consecutive racks and clinch the narrowest of victories in a very tense finish.
His handicap now moves up to A+12 as a result.
Gan also played very well to reach the final, before just falling short against our champion, and took home 6500 baht in 2nd Place.
The full list of winners was ;
Champion : Jayson (A+11) – 11000 baht.
Runner-Up : Gan (A+4) – 6500 baht.
