Alan Ng wins at Hall of Champions

(l-r) Kok Jken Yung and Alan Ng
Although he may not have won any of the 13 legs held, Alan Ng chose to put up his best performance as he beats Kok Jken Yung 11-9 to win the Golden Break 10 Ball Tour 2012/13 Grand Final, ending the season on a high note for himself and Amazon Pool Club.

It was not easy for Alan as the much younger Jken Yung was in the pilot seat throughout the whole Final, leading all the way up to 9-6, requiring only 2 more racks to lift the trophy. Maybe the pressure was too much to handle for Jken Yung as Alan slowly took advantage of his opponent's careless mistake, winning one rack at a time and finally cleared up Rack 20 to seal the match and victory.

Alan Ng takes home cash prize of RM 8,000, the Champion's trophy and the Challenge trophy as well to be displayed until next year. A very much despaired Kok Jken Yung only manages RM 4,000 cash prize and the Runner up's trophy to bring back to Sabah.

Golden Break's Management thanks everyone for the support throughout the year and promises next season will be even more exciting.

Winners List
Champion - Alan Ng (Amazon Pool Club)
Runner up - Kok Jken Yung (SSBA)
Semi Finalist - Clement Lim (Goldball)
Semi Finalist - Frankie Kok (SSBA)

Rory conquers the Nationals

(l-r) Rory Thor and Iniesta Lim
Favourite for the title from the very beginning, Rory Thor didn't disappoint his fans as he steamrolled Iniesta Lim 6-0 to win the 25th National Snooker Championship 2013 at Good 9 Snooker Center.

Soon to represent Malaysia in the upcoming 4th Asian Indoor Games at Incheon, South Korea, Rory was in control from the first frame as the much inexperienced Iniesta Lim played cluelessly, losing frame after frame. After the mid interval session, Iniesta managed to play slightly better but was still unable to chase back, finally losing it without scoring a frame.

This match also goes into Malaysia's history as the only one where a player fails to win a frame in the Final.

Rory Thor takes home RM 5,000 cash prize, the Champion's trophy and also the Challenge Trophy sponsored by Jaring Metal Industries S/B. Iniesta Lim settles for the Runner up's trophy and RM 2,000 cash prize. Rory also claims the Highest Break cash prize of RM 800 with 100 points in his Quarter Final match.

Final Result
Rory Thor 6 - 0 Iniesta Lim
60-7, 66-17,75-35, 69-41, 52-21, 61-48
