APA Regional 9-Ball Champs

Posted on Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

Held at the ACBS Clubrooms : 19-20 May 2012

Report by Malcolm Beehre : Only a small field in the Women’s event again this year, but the title was still keenly contested with Lisa Everett taking it out, winning 6/4 over Lucinda Prescott.

There were a couple of upsets in the Men’s Section Play and also a couple of count-backs required for 4th place in Sections.  Lee Jones and Jamie Walker  both had good performances in Section Play and so too did newcomer Kelvin Tu, but it was still the usual group that ended up being the top qualifiers.

ABSA Open B-Grade Snooker

Posted on Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Held at the ACBS Clubrooms : 21-22 April 2012

Report by Malcolm Beehre : The event was run trialing a new deviation to the dreaded foul and miss rule.  All snooker rules stayed the same except if a player was snookered and failed to hit the ball on, his opponent could place the white anywhere on the table for his next shot,thus eliminating a lot of time and deliberations. NB : All other fouls committed were dealt with as normal.

Each match in Section play was two frames only and the qualifiers were determined by the number of frames won and not by the number of matches won.   Continue reading »
