After a very hard fought final, Imtiaz Serwer pulled through to win Leg One XZ Snooker Tour 2013 at TP Snooker, Shah Alam. He beats Rory Thor 4-3 to claim the title.

Both semi finals were also a closely fought match with the matches going all the way to the decider as well. Mohd Reza, whom led 3-1 with requiring only 1 more frame to progress to the Final, fell down right before the finish line and lost on the dccider.

Patrick Ooi too faced the same fate, leading 3-2 but was forced by Imtiaz to bring the match to the decider. Imtiaz slammed the winning Pink ball in, playing a cushion shot which made it more painful for Patrick.

Rory Thor opened the Final with a 117 points break to lead 1-0 but was quickly overtaken by Imtiaz to regain the lead at 2-1. Rory won the next 2 frames with a 51 break, to lead 3-2 needing one more frame only to clinch the first title of the year but yet again was forced to the decider by Imtiaz. Final frame cued off with Imtiaz in control and maintained all the way to the colour balls. Trailing 10 points with 3 snookers required, Rory made 2 snookers successfully with Imtiaz getting more nervous. After a few safety shots and snooker attempts, Imtiaz finally potted the Brown to seal his first 2013 victory.

Imtiaz Serwer takes home RM 3,000 cash prize for the first victory of the year while Rory collects RM 1,200 cash prize and trophy. Highest break went to Rory Thor with 117 points made during the Final. He takes home RM 500 plus a Altantis snooker cue courtesy of Wiraka.
