Biggest win for Imtiaz

Imtiaz lifts the trophy
Imtiaz Serwer couldn’t help but laugh out loud as he receives the biggest pay cheque of his tournament career yesterday. He beats Mohd Reza by 7-2 to win the 2nd Top Two Selangor Asia Invitational Snooker Championship 2012 at Kuchai Lama

During the entire duration of the Championship, he was never in any real danger playing each match as he won all his Round Robin matches and winning straight through the Knockout stage to lift the trophy. The only closest fought match will be his match against Mohd Shehab during the Round Robin stage, which went to the deciding frame. It was a totally different story when they met again in the Semis and Imtiaz literally crushed Shehab to advance into the Final.

Mohd Reza, whom had to struggle to win Ng Ann Seng the day before from a 3-5 deficit in the Semis, was struggling very hard as he faced a very much in form Imtiaz in the Final.

The moment the Final cued off, there was much little to guess who was the hot favourite as Imtiaz immediately sped off to a 3-0 lead, leaving Reza still standing at the starting point.

A few careless mistakes by Imtiaz gave Reza Frame 4 but was quickly dismissed off as Imtiaz sprang back and sped off to win back-to-back frames, leading 5-1.

Winning Frame 7 to narrow the gap gave Reza a glimpse of hope to still survive in this match but that was never to be realized. Imtiaz revved up all engines and sped off straight to the Finish line, winning the match by 7-2.

and Top Two's GM Sam Chong

Imtiaz Serwer takes home RM 10,000 cash prize and a lovely crystal trophy for his Champion’s triumph while a very much disappointed Mohd Reza takes home RM 5,000 cash prize and trophy.

Highest break of the Championship went to Mohd Shehab from UAE with his 117 points break in his match against Jason Cheong, winning himself RM 1,000 cash prize plus a Atlantis cue and case, sponsored by Riley Wiraka Sports Trading.

Sam Chong, was also honored as he receives a certificate as Most Outstanding Performance for his triumph with Rory Thor to win the Men Snooker Double Gold at last year’s Palembang SEA Games.

Face Off : Imtiaz vs Reza

Imtiaz plays flawless snooker in today's match
Imtiaz Serwer was literally sweeping up everything on the green baize while Mohd Shehab looks on helplessly, as Imtiaz wins his semi final match 6-1 without much effort.

From the country with the tallest building in the world, Mohd Shehab, currently ranked No 1 in UAE and also the current highest break holder for this Championship, seem distracted with his cue tip from the beginning and was not his usual self today. His form dipped and Imtiaz capitalized on every chance given, gaining a 4-0 lead before the 15 minutes interval.

After the interval, Shehab played slightly better and won Frame 5 to narrow the gap to 1-4. But that was all he could salvage, as Imtiaz pounced and took the next 2 frames to win the match, going into the Final and a chance to take home the RM 10,000 Champion's cash prize.

Mohd Reza plays a shot with the rest

Mohd Reza, after his recent round trip to snooker holy ground The Crucible, was very much in form coming into his Semi Final match. His opponent Ng Ann Seng, whom have been missing from this level of competition for quite some time, was also playing well with a glimpse of his used-to-be playing form.

Last 4 standing in Top 2

Mohd Reza takes aim in his match against Hong Kong's Lau Ka Lam
Mohd Reza, whom recently came back from UK after completing his WPBSA Coaching Course there goes through to the Semi Finals after convincingly beating Thailand's Yuttapop Pakpoj by 5-1, which included a high break of 96 points in Frame 2.

Mohd Shehab from UAE remains the only overseas player surviving in the Championship as it boils down to only 4 players left at the 2nd Top Two Selangor Asia Invitational Snooker Championship 2012.

The Last 16 matches were mostly neck to neck encounters as some matches were decided on the final frame while the others were won clear cut. Top Two's resident pro Sam Chong finally was given the defeat as Lai Chee Wei beat him. Last year's semi finalist Elvin Lean was unable to repeat his performance as he lost to Imtiaz Serwer in the Quarter Finals.

Highest break of the Championship remains at 117 points by Mohd Shehab, potentially earning RM 1,000 cash prize for his effort, unless someone out do him in the remaining 3 matches in the Championship.

Semi Final will be played in 2 sessions, first one at 2pm between Mohd Shehab and Imtiaz Serwer while the second session will be played at 7pm between Mohd Reza and Ng Ann Seng. Both matches are played over Best of 11 frames.

The Final will be played on Saturday at 3pm over Best of 13 frames.
