NZ Billiards Champs : 10-14 July
Held at the ACBS Clubrooms : 23 June 2012
Semi-finals : B Steward bt B Davies 2/0, W Carey bt R O’Connor 2/0.
Final : W Carey bt B Steward 2/1.
Highest Break : R O’Connor (26).
A very strong field for this tournament, probably due to it being the last ranking tournament before the 2012 National Billiards & Snooker Championships.
Giant killer of the tournament was Marino Hapi who was #5 seed in Section 3. Hapi had 5 wins which included a 2/1 over Sanjay Kumar. Top Qualifier for Post-Section play was Chris Maltby followed by Steve Robertson, Matthew Scarborough and Hapi. However, Hapi was soundly beaten 3/0 by Gillard in the Quarter-finals. The other Quarter-final results were Robertson bt Roberts 3/0, Killian bt Scarborough 3/0 and Bala bt Maltby 3/2. Maltby had a 102 break in the third frame of this match. Semi-final results were Killian bt Robertson 3/1 and Gilliard bt Bala 3/2. The Final went 3/0 to Killian over Gillard.

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. Continue reading »
