Max Guan – King of the Corral
Max Guan, the King of the corral, wins the BC Snooker Shootout Championship!!!
Can he be beat? Who knows? Fresh off his Welcome Back Tournament win, Guan adds some more silverware to his trophy case.
Guan is a quick player so this type of event does tailor to his game, but Jonathan Sun, Albert Lam and Parshant Sanger all had their chances to deny Guan of the championship. It was a quick moving event with close matches and a few big breaks, but looking around the room during the event there were a lot of smiles, and keen interest in this different format, so I think there are going to be a few more players signing up when this event happens again. We are not getting away from traditional snooker as we love it so much, but it is good to get a little variety and with all the smiles around the room, I am pretty sure the shootout will be back.
Big thanks to Jonathan Sun and the staff at Top 147 that always makes us feel at home.
The tournament could not have happened without the great help of referees Tommy Ha and Charley Han, and scorekeeper, Sam Tonning.
Thank you to Rob Johnson and the AAA labs team for putting together a poster to help get the word out and thanks to Ken Gammer that brought in some great speakers so the countdown could be heard throughout the room.
Thanks to you all!!!
CSL fall sessions are coming to a close within the month, but the CSL winter sessions will be beginning in January, and you will be soon able to register for this league at www.snookercanada.ca
The BC Open is tentatively scheduled for February 18-20, 2022. Let’s hope the floods reside, and we can get a good field out there. Call your tailor as you have been warned, Dress code A will be enforced. Dress shoes, dress pants, dress shirt, vest, and if you are daring enough let’s see who can have the fanciest socks.
We are still waiting to hear about details about the Richler cup as this new Covid variant might have something to say about that. However, as soon as I know any details, you will be informed.
Until then, stay safe, stay dry, keep your head down and practice lots to produce the results you want to see.
