NZPA North Island Men’s and Women’s 10-Ball

Posted on October 4th, 2012

Hosted by the Auckland Pool Assn and held at the ACBS Clubrooms : 28-30 September 2012

Report by Malcolm Beehre : Certainly a lot to think about in 10-Ball which is made up of 8 and 9-Ball rules and at times was confusing some players.  A few surprises in the qualifiers; one of them being Matt Edwards who qualified 14th with only 2 wins, and Lingxiao Zhu in the same section, thinking he had already qualified before his last match, and didn’t commit himself to it, losing 6/7.  So with only 2 wins missed out by one frame.

2012 Mitchell Cloth North Island Snooker

Posted on September 25th, 2012

Report by Malcolm Beehre : There’s always an underdog who performs well and achieves personal bests when playing in a high class field like this tournament.  This time it was Roy O’Connor who, after a mammoth 3 hour match, lost to Rob Redgrove on the pink in the 5th frame.  This frame had a very difficult situation half way through it, which involved the foul and miss rule and also a situation which involved Redgrove having the upper hand after O’connor missed the ball on five times and always left a free ball situation.  On the 4th free ball, Redrove ended up snookering O’Connor behind the ball he took as a free ball, reversing the situation.  However after the 2nd free ball, O’Connor had he played a bad shot and the ball on.  O’Connor then took the 1st frame off Chris Maltby in his next match, but Maltby then had an 83 clearance and a 73 break in the next two frames and won the match 3/1.

ABSA B-Grade Open Snooker

Posted on September 25th, 2012

Held at the ACBS Clubrooms : 23 September 2012

Report by Malcolm Beehre : Everyone seemed to enjoy the format for this tournament which was Soopa Snooka rules which are very similar to 147 rules.  Party Poker Snooker Shoot out are the same as Soopa Snooka, except they have a 10 minute time limit and a 20 second, then 15 second shot time limit.  Very simply, in Soopa Snooka a ball must be potted or pocketed every shot except when playing out of a snooker.  Points are awarded for all fouls.  White ball can be placed anywhere on the table after any foul.  At any stage in the frame if an opponent needs 3 snookers to draw, the frame is over.  Anyone wanting a full set of rules can contact Malcolm Beehre on 021 309 447.

APA Regional 10-Ball

Posted on September 15th, 2012

Held at the ACBS Clubrooms : 08-09 September 2012

Report by Malcolm Beehre : No real surprises in Section Play qualifiers.  There’s a giant killer in every tournament and this time it was a new comer to APA events who qualified Number 1 in his section, beating Marvin Padrigo 6/5, Jon Grimley 6/3, Coy Cao 6/1 and Alistair Arlidge 6/3.  Unfortunately he came up against 13th qualifier Maher hatab and went down 6/4.  It was a great effort by Hatab who has struggled to find form this year and I’m sure we are going to see a lot more of Qi Heiwen.
