Shortly after two victories in Kuala Lumpur, Rory Thor continues his streak back in his hometown as he wins the TOP SEED Penang Open Snooker Championship 2014. He defeats Mohd Reza 6-3 in the Final to make it 3 wins in a row.

Semi Finals scoreline were both identical and lasted only slightly short of the 2 hours mark as both delivered a whitewash 5-0 to Moh Keen Hoo and Sebastian H'ng.

The Final cued off with an already packed venue, all eager to catch a glimpse of the action that has been happening for the past 7 days. Once the Final cues off, Rory sped into a 4-0 lead whilst leaving a trail of smoke for Reza to try and catch up. After a short interval, Reza was still unable to do anything as Rory takes yet another frame to lead 5-0, requiring only 1 more frame for the RM 10,000 cash prize.

Things started to change in Frame 6 as Rory made a few more careless mistakes, leaving chances to Reza to garner points and continuously claiming 3 frames in a row to narrow the gap to 5-3.

Frame 9 cued off as Rory, trying hard to dismiss the previous frames mistakes, plays a more defensive approach. Reza tried to play a few safety but faltered at the last shot, leaving Rory a long red. Rory potted it and continued to make a match winning break of 68, sealing the frame and match.

Rory Thor takes away RM10,000 cash prize as the Champion whilst Mohd Reza manages only RM 5,000. Semi Finalists Moh Keen Hoo and Sebastian H'ng each takes RM 2,000 cash prize. Highest Break of the Championship goes to Zack Loh with his near maximum effort of 113 points.
