2015 ABSA/ACBS Snooker Championships
A lot of personal bests in this tournament mainly by the younger players that are coming up through the ranks. Jamish Kant was certainly one of those. Not content with beating Gordon Dong black to win in the 5th frame, Cliff Keach on the pink in the 5th, Nyan Win Aye 3/1 he also had his best high break in a tournament of 60. Four juniors in all qualified for post section, the others were Mikey Stewart, Louis Chand and Wilson Chong. Stewart and Chand not losing a match in section play. However the only junior who progressed further was Stewart who made the final which was a good effort after he won the B-Grade Snooker the previous week. Quarter-Finals, Henry Killian 3, Chong 0, Gordon Dong 3, Kant 1, Bruce Davies 3, Chand 0, Stewart 3, Dale Kwok 2 after a 3 ½ hour battle. Semi-Finals, Killian 3, Dong 0, Stewart 3, Davies 0, H Killian was far too strong in the final winning 3/1 and in the 4th frame had breaks of 51 and 34. Highest break went to Dong – 75. The plate was won by McCaulay Marchant over Cliff Keach 2/1.

New Zealand fully supports World Championships and supports players attending that instead of the planned … 4x NZ world ranking tournaments.
The NZ Open Billiards has been around for over 60 years (actually, apparently first dated 1908) and in the last 20 years, they were held in late September/early October of which, in the last 11 years they have definitely been held last weekend in September.
In the last 15 years, the IBSF has held only 3 Billiard events September, so it is a long call to say it is `traditional’.
The last time New Zealand held it’s hand up was 2011. The Christchurch earthquake` flattened that’ and we were gratefully saved by Ireland who took it over at such short notice.
Because of a number of people who have booked air tickets etc for NZ, we are still going to hold all four tournaments, but at very much reduced levels as we have lost the sponsorship and the `live SkyTV’ coverage.
Therefore, as confirmed on the WBL website, the four NZ September world ranking Billiards events are being held at the below venues.
Woolston Club, Hartood Street, Woolston, Christchurch
Airpark Canterbury Christchurch City Open … Friday 11-13 Sept — billeting accommodation is expected to be available for this … please contact Alan Parris … firstname.lastname@example.org
Snooker World, 713 Mount Albert Road, Royal Oak, Auckland
Outer Limits World Ranking Billiards … Thursday 17-19 Sept
Next two are both at the Hamilton Cosmopolitan Club, Claudelands Road, Hamilton
Hamilton Pacific International Billiards … Tuesday 22-24 September.
NZ Open Billiards … Friday 25-27th Sept
As always, we take everybody to the Cambridge night Trots .. horse racing … 24th Sept … this is an enjoyable relaxed outing. This is another reason why we have the dates we have, because this race meeting is held then.
All at least half point World Ranking … NZD 2500 each
Each tournament has an entry fee of ..NZD 80 … and if you play in all four … NZD 300
All tournaments are under the `time format’.
Thoughts are that some players can go to Christchurch, compete … then have a few days to get themselves to Auckland by Wednesday 16th Sept. They can spend a few days touring the South Island – back to Christchurch and fly directly to Auckland for about NZD60pp ? … on Jetstar or AirNZ .. maybe an extra $15 for your Cue… please be sure to mention the cue case when booking.
The Auckland tournament finishes on the Saturday 19 Sept and this gives everybody a day in Auckland on the Sunday (if they choose) and then head to Hamilton on the Monday…. 90min easy drive Auckland to Hamilton.
We very much hope that we will have sponsored people carriers for this part week in Auckland and the whole week in Hamilton… not confirmed at this stage.
Accommodation: we will put more data on this next week
We hope to billet everyone in Christchurch…. for those that prefer there is a Motel within 5min walking .. hope to have people carriers.
Auckland has the `Dukes Motel` within about 5min walking…. other Motels are 5-10min drive.
Hamilton has lots of Motels handy … but the closest is the very nice … Brooklyn Motor Lodge… 6-8min walking .. we have a deal there at NZD 120 twin share including Continental breakfast …. when booking, advise them that you are with the “NZBSA Billiards.” They do have 3 people share rooms too.
Please keep checking the WBL website … flyer(s) out soon.
There will be questions .. please email me … will answer them … email@example.com
National 9 Ball report 2015 (David Breen)
The National men’s 9 ball assembled a very strong field of 43 players .The top seeded 8 players were automatically through to the Sunday double life elimination. Twenty four players came through the qualifying from Saturday .Top of their six sections were Joe Pologa , Chris Bowman, Lincoln Muaulu, Raymond Sayo, K D Singh and Joe Wen.
Sunday saw some early upsets in the first round sending some players to the long road through the loser’s side of the draw .Jamie Walker sent KD Singh over to the losers side 6/4.and Ryon Derriman defeated past champion Glen Coutts 6/3.
The eventual finalist K D Singh showed how tough and long the day can be on the losers side. He defeated Vinnie Adams 6/4,Raymond Sayo 6/5,Kevin Zhang 7/5,Chris Bowman 8/4Brent Wells 8/3 and Marvin Padrigo 8/5 – 8 matches and then onto the final with Matt Edwards.
Matts road to the final was 5 matches with the final being his 6th.Matt defeated Ning Yang 6/2,Deepak Bala7/2,Ryang Wang 8/1 and Marvin Padrigo 10/4 before his clash with KD in the final.
K D Singh had been in fine touch holding his form well throughout the day and running frames out strongly .K D took the first frame but Matt levelled and soon got in front. Matt was showing a fine balance of safety, finishing and running out frames and never looked like surrendering the lead. The final score 10/4.K D showed that it may not be long before he takes out a title his overall play throughout the tournament was the most consistent I had seen from him.
Matt had recently returned from the China Open and mixing it with world champions has seen his game develop even stronger. He now holds the 3 National titles of 8,9 and 10 ball.
The National woman’s field was 8 players who all played section play in two groups of four with the top two in each section going through to Sunday double life. Qualifiers were Lorna Frost, Hami Nguyen, Molrudee K and Connie Adams. The final was between Molrudee and Lorna with Molrudee winning 9/2. Molrudee also now holds the 10,8 and 9 ball national titles.

City of Invercargill Poster below! All ACBS members are welcome to compete in this event
A very high standard of potting in this headed by Gordon Dong with 590 points from 7 x 21 minute frames including 117 in one frame. In the afternoon re-draw he also had the highest score of 477 followed by Lee Rudolph with 463. Rudolph was in front by 24 points going into the last round and looking like winning the event but Carlson failed to hit the yellow in his last round game against Dong who got 20 points before the bell went.
Also a time frame tournament, player of the day would have to go to Junior, Pravil Kant who played some impressive snooker end up with 4 wins in section play then beat Ashwin Kumar in the Quarter-finals 2/1, Cliff Keach in the semi-finals 2/1. Unfortunately in the final he had a rush of blood in the final frame losing to Evan Carlson who had beaten Lee Rudolph 2/0 in the other semi-final.
