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.

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.
