Snooker Season Kicks off in BC
What a first tournament of the year. A lot of matches that went to deciders, black ball finishes, and some great come from behind wins.
Ming Yao won the novice division tournament by score line of 3-0 over Michael Kang. A lot of the new players to game are really enjoying the battles they are having with their fellow novice players. Gary Wallace handled the refereeing for this match and he laid down the law with perfection. Tony Li, who is new to the Snooker Canada fold picked up 3rd place.
On the intermediate side Stephen Folan, who the last year’s last qualifier, defeated Canadian Open runner up Alan Ima by a score of 3-1. Referee Tyler Choutka took the reins for this match and this is his first under the title of Head referee of Snooker Canada. Strong work Tyler!! Ross Bradsen’s usual supporters were absence from this event, but Ross was still able to achieve 3rd place.
Thank you to all the players that showed up and did battle on the baize. This format is new this year, so make sure you are reading the rules and regulations.
