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.
