A top field of 35 in this event which included players from Christchurch, Wellington, Napier, Waikato and Auckland. Because of the calibre of the field there were some major upsets, notably 3rd, 4th and 5th seeds Gary Gillard, Shannon Swain and Eldon Lai failing to qualify for Post-section Play. Section 7 ended by having 3 x 3 winners with Willy Florence first on a +6 differential, second was Dale Kwok on a +4 and third was Clive Thomson on a +3 allowing him to qualify in the number 15 spot as one of the two best thirds. The other third place getter who qualified as number 16 was Shannon Swain. At this stage of the tournament there had been 25 breaks over 40, the top break being 92 by Thomson. Continue reading »
Report by Malcolm Beehre : Probably one of the strongest fields for a long time, with three former NZ Snooker Champions plus the current Champ, Bayden Jackson and two NZ Champ Runner-ups. This was a full field of 30 players, six sections of five with two qualifying from each section, plus the next four bestthirds to take up the last sixteen Post-section draw.
Roy Clark astounded himself by being top qualifier for Post-section play. This was the first time he has been top qualifier in an NZBSA ranking tournament. Clark was ranked10th in this tournament, winning three matches 3/0, then beating the 2009 NZ Snooker Champion, Chris Maltby by 3/1. Maltby won the first frame having a 56 break in that one, but Clark won the next three making a 30 break in each frame and then played good safety to keep Maltby out. Continue reading »
