Rory victorious at Elite Penang

Rory Thor had to fight very hard to bounce back, defeating Mohd Reza in the Final of Leg 12 XZ Snooker Tour 2011 at Elite Snooker, Penang to claim the inaugural title at Elite Snooker & Pool Cafe.

Rory breezed through his Semi Final match against Moh Keen Hoo after the whitewash defeat in Century Break whilst Reza had to work a bit harder for his match against Patrick Ooi but still made it through.

Rory sped off into a 2-0 lead as the Final commenced, but was quickly over taken by Reza as he reeled 3 straight frames and requiring only one more frame to win the Championship. Frame 6 boiled down to the last black as both exchanged skills and nervous game play, and Rory potted it to force the match into the deciding final frame. Both showed nervousness and pressured shots and eventually it was Rory who was the better player, claiming frame and match to lift the Champion's trophy.

Below are the results for the Semi Finals and Final.
