|(l-r) Imtiaz Serwer, New Five representative CF Chan and Rory Thor|
In the Semi Final matches, Rory survived a scare from Lai Chee Wei when the match was leveled at 2-2 but was soon outplayed as he closed to win it 4-2 to advance into the Final. In the other half, first timer William Teo was very excited as he makes his first Semi Final appearance against Imtiaz Serwer and led 1-0 after the match started. The excitement and anticipation however was short lived, as Imtiaz went on to win straight 4 frames to go through.
The Final was a very one sided match, as Rory literally hammered Imtiaz to go into a 3-0 lead. Imtiaz took 1 frame to narrow the gap but that was the end as Rory cleared up the colours in Frame 5 to win frame and match.
Rory takes home RM 3,000 cash prize whilst Imtiaz only manages RM 1,200. Highest Break went to Imtiaz with 88 points, winning only the trophy without the cash prize RM 500 as the minimum 100 points were not met.
Next leg of the Tour will move to the East Coast as The Ball Room in Megamall, Kuantan plays host for the first time. Below are the results for the Semi Finals and Final.
