Rory sweet revenge over Patrick

(l-r) Patrick Ooi, SSBA President Melvin Chia and Rory Thor
It was a sweet revenge for Rory Thor as he beats Patrick Ooi to win Leg 6 at A One Snooker & Pool Club, Kepong.

Compared to the day before where 4 centuries were made in the Quarter Finals, the Semi Finals were a more tighter affair with a lot of safety exchanges. Both matches with very close frame scores produced not so close finals scores as Rory and Patrick won Lai Chee Wei and Lee Hwa Meng with score lines of 4-2 and 4-1 respectively.

Rory broke off in the Final and immediately went ahead to a 2-0 lead but received a immense reply as Patrick fought back, winning 3 frames in a row to lead back 3-2. Frame 6 saw a bit of struggle in the beginning and it was Rory who prevailed and reeled in the next 3 frames to win the match 5-3.

Rory takes home cash prize RM 3,000 and the trophy for his effort while Patrick settled for RM 1,200 and the trophy. Highest break for the Championship went to Lee Hwa Meng with a score of 127 points, winning himself cash prize RM 500 and a Atlantis snooker cue worth RM 1,000 sponsored by Wiraka.

Patrick's long awaited victory

(l-r) Patrick Ooi, Sam Chong and Rory Thor
It took him nearly two years before finally breaking the dry spell as Patrick Ooi wins Leg 5 of XZ Snooker Tour 2012 at One Class Snooker. He beats the Club's resident pro Rory Thor by 5-3.

Playing with a new cue in this Championship, his match play form was very much consistent through out without dropping much frames. His Semi Final's match was won without much hassle as Thean Mun Kit failed to give him a run for a place in the Final, being whitewashed 0-4.

Rory Thor in the other Semi Final match played against the defending champion Lai Chee Wei, whom won it 2 years in a row. The match was tied at 2-2 before Rory pulled front to take the next 2 frames and match.

The Final was in favour of Rory as head to head statistics showed that Patrick lost more times than he could remember playing him. But as the match cued off, Patrick straight took the first 3 frames to lead 3-0, leaving a blur Rory sitting in his chair, clueless and helpless. After a brief break, Rory made a 57 to win Frame 4 and the next 2 frames to level the match at 3-3. Patrick immediately pulled out his last move from his bag of tricks and took the next 2 frames to win the match.

Sam did not fail to disappoint the locals supporters that came in drove as he whitewashed Imtiaz Serwer 5-0 to lift the Champion's trophy of the Mike Yow Memorial Cup 2012.

During the Semi Final matches, both Thailand's players were the hot favourites to go into the Final as people came as early as 12pm to catch a glimpse of world class snooker action. As the matches started, Sam saw himself down 0-3 to a very much in form Yuttapop Pakpoj. Sam immediately sprang back to reply with breaks of 83, 54 and 50 to level back the match at 3-3, showing his playing form during his glory days. Frame 7 was a seesaw frame which Sam won on the colours and made another 83 points to win Frame 8 and match to advance into the Final.

As the Final was started in front of an full packed arena, there was no looking back for Sam as he went on to win straight 4 frames in a row before the 15 minutes interval.
