Below are the updated results for the earlier matches.
The inaugural Pahang Open Snooker Championship 2011 starts on 24 Sept with the Final concluding on 30 Sept. Ball Room plays host venue to one of the richest event in East Coast with the Champion taking away a whopping RM 6,000 cash prize.
It was a very narrow gap but Mohd Reza managed to squeeze through, as he beats Rory Thor on the final frame to win Leg 13 of XZ Snooker Tour 2011 at The Cues Snooker, Kampar.
Reza came into the Final in tip top condition as he whitewashed Lai Chee Wei in the Semi Final match whilst on the side, Rory too had little trouble in winning former Asian Champion, Sam Chong 4-1 to advance.
As the Final started, Rory immediately took the 1st frame but was replied aggressively by Reza as he took the next 3 frames to lead at 3-1, needing only one more frame to secure the title. Rory, after a short break, came back to the table, trying to regain form and found himself winning the next 2 frames to level the match at 3-3.
It all boils down to the final frame as both players shook hands to cue off. As the frame progressed, neither player wanted to budge for the other as excellent snookers and great safety play was exchanged between them. Eventually it was Reza who proved to be the better player as he wins the final frame.
Mohd Reza walks away with the Champion's trophy as Rory Thor can only settle for the Runner up's trophy.
